MassUltra Roundup: Bigfoot, Farm to Farm, Tesla Hertz, Oil Creek, and Water Gap

While the largest cropping of Massachusetts ultrarunners spent the weekend of Oct. 8-9 racing or volunteering at the TARC 100 ultrarunning festival in Westwood, Mass., (see additional TARC 100 coverage on MassUltra.com), a handful of Bay State residents scattered throughout the country to tackle other ultras. We’ve included five of them in this week’s roundup. If we’ve missed your event (here’s looking at you, Grindstone), don’t worry, we’ll include it next week.

Traer Blazes to Runner-Up Finish at Cascade Crest 100

Fast times were to be expected at the Cascade Crest 100-Mile Endurance Run. After all, defending champion Jesse Lang was back for the race on Saturday, Aug. 27, in Easton, Wash., a year after recording the second-fastest time in course history.

Adding to the speed factor was that Scott Traer made the cross-country trip from Woburn, Mass., to tackle the mountain race with more than 22,000 feet of vertical gain. Throw in speedy Texan Paul Terranova from Austin – a top-20 finisher at Western States in June and the runner-up at the Rocky Raccoon 100 in February – and another Western States top-20 finisher, Benjamin Bucklin of Spokane, Wash., and the competition was stout.
