Predictions for masters & seniors at Loon mountain

Excitement is high as the USA Mountain running championships return to New England.  The championships were last held in New Hampshire at Loon Mountain in 2014.  The challenging 6 mile course with nearly 3,000’ of climb will be used again this year.  The race will not only be used to select the U.S. team for the world mountain running championships but will also determine the US champions for both teams and individuals in a number of age groups.  As a senior runner (age 50-59) I’m most interested in my age group.  As a member of the Central Mass Striders I’m also interested in the masters category (age 40-49) as we have a number of runners who may have a shot at taking home medals.  CMS has done well at the Mountain running champs scoring Gold in the Open, Masters, and Seniors in 2014 and Gold in the masters in 2013.  It is not an easy task to handicap a mountain race as road race times may not indicate an ability at Mountain Running.  Loon is especially hard to predict as top runners need to be strong climbers but also have to be able to run fast (2 miles of “cross country”) and have to be good at descending (about 700’ of drop).  I’ve only researched USATF entrants as of 06-27-16.
 
I think the best chances for medals in the masters would be Tim Van Orden, Todd Callaghan, Chris Grauch, Ethan Nedeau, and Ivan Marsh.  All have solid road times and/or track along with trail running.  Van Orden has won all of the USATF NE mountain series races this year.  Callaghan has been very close to Van Orden in all of the mountain series and recently set a personal best at Mt Washington.  Grauch is the returning Mountain champion and also was the USA masters trail marathon champion in 2015.  Marsh has solid ½ marathon and 10k times and also has Tower Climbing credentials.
 
The senior competition is pretty wide open with most of the top guys from the USATF NE mountain series in contention.  The series has had four different senior winners in the first four races.  All of the races have been very close.  There is potential for a lot of back and forth during the race as the stronger XC runners do well early and the stronger climbers making up ground late.  Dave Dunham, Erik Vandendries, Jeff Hunt, Ed Sheldon, and Dan Verrington all represent the CMS club and any could end up on the podium.  Christopher Smith (SRR) and Jeff Walker (Dirigo) also are in the medal hunt.
