Trail Racing Over Texas TROT CUP Updates

TROT CUP UPDATE

With the Blazing 7s race offering a 100k, 50k, 25k and 10k there was quite a few points to gain with all the distances.

Matt Zmolek with his win in the 100k moved up to 4th place in the overall rankings and Buddy Howlett also scored in the 25k moving within a few spots of the overall podium. Jeff Miller moved up to 8th place with his 50k win also cracking the top 10 for the 2nd time this year to round out the moves in the top 10 overall.

Jeff Ball continues the run away in the 0-29 but there is an almost 6 way tie in the 30-39 age group so its all up for grabs the last 3 races. Jeff Miller 40-49 and Buddy Howlett 50-59 extended their leads in their age groups as well after Blazing 7s. Wayne Schlosser with his 100k performance put some distance in the 60-69 and Mr Musfy continues to sit atop the over 70 group. 

The #8,9 and 10 all changed hands with the Blazing 7s Women;s Overall points. Kimberly Palacios, Mari Zapata and Melissa Linan all scored points and have cracked the top 10.

Kate Paperberg still leads the points for the 0-29 with some ladies starting to chip away at her leads while Tracie Akerhilem overall leader is way out in front in the 30-39 category. Sherry Scott leads Becky Nesbitt by a few points in the 40-49 category and Dawn Burris with her 100k finish takes the lead in the 50-50 category. Nancy Holcomb moves into 2nd in the 60-69 and Thelma Richardson is owning the 70+ age group as well. 

The Strutters extended their lead over the Houston Area Trail Runners by over a 100 with their members who scored highly in the 100k and other races. We saw TEAM RWB get the hang of it with a great 40 point jump to move them into 3rd place overall as well. 

With there being 3 races left in the 2015 TROT schedule it will come down to the last race at Brazos Bend 100. The Jackalope Jam could really shake the points up with the 24 hour runners getting the opportunity to rack up big points with mileage.

The Trail Racing Over Texas TROT Cup has been heating up since the summer races have been in full swing. Habanero Hundred proved to be a huge boost for many runners in the series as the course took out more than 50% of the field. The easier paced Night Moves Trail Run brought in a slew of new trail runners and one of the fastest fields we have seen in recent months.

The Brazos Bend 50 was a great test of endurance for all of the runners on April 25th 2015. The runners had to deal with rain, hail, mud and then the sun at the end of the day. Once the rain stopped the runners started to come in with some really impressive times. 

There was a few shake ups in the top men's and women's field for the Trot Cup as well. Team TROT runner Tracie Akerhielm won the 50k overall and cemented herself in the #1 spot for the overall standings. Team TROT runner Melinda Coen had a great 4th place finish in the 50 miler and put herself in 3rd place in the overall female standings. 

Team TROT runner Jeff Ball trailed Team TROT runner Cal Neff from the San Felipe Shootout and entered into the 50k. Jeff finished 2nd overall and took over the points lead for the TROT Cup. Cal Neff who was in Turkey running with Red Bull slid to 2nd place. Daniel Bucci who race strong at San Felipe Shootout was the 4th male in the 50k and is your 3rd male in the TROT Cup Standings. 

The Team Cup Standings will be available after the Horseshoe Trail Run and will start updating after each race there after.

Fresh off of the San Felipe Shootout we have updated and calculated all the points for the TROT CUP. Each point counts for every race as there is more than $3500 in Cash and more up for grabs for individuals and age group winners.  Per the rules of the Cup all runners are included in the individual and age group winnings. You do not have to have a minimum about of races to qualify and the relays will accumulate points as well for the individual runners. 

We are allowing Teams to submit members that may have run but forgot to declare a team until after the Horseshoe Trail Run on May 16th. After that date your points will start for your team once you declare your team even if you forget until later in the year.  We want to make sure that is it fair for the 2nd half of the year and teams don't pick up runners who happen to be collecting more points.
