Bridger Ridge Run 2013 Registrants

Scroll down to see the final list of participants for this year’s Ridge Run. There may still be an auction entry outstanding and even a special consideration added by the Race director, but for the most part this is the final list.

For those that did not get in, please sign up next year and you will get in. Given the current level of interest in the race, the Ridge Run committee can still make this promise. If the number of people signing up for the lottery sees explosive growth, then they may have to reconsider. If you didn’t get in this year and don’t try again next year then don’t expect to be given special consideration the year after next. The promise to get in if you didn’t get in the year before, can’t be carried over beyond a year.

It is unfortunate that not everyone that wants to do the race can do the race. And it may see unfair that so and so got in and this other person didn’t. Fairness is the goal, but the reality is that depending upon your reference frame life will appear inherently unfair. The selection committee put a lot of time and work into reviewing special considerations and still leaving the vast majority of slots filled by random lottery.

What to Expect from the Competition in 2013

Taking a glance at the list, there are a couple names that stand out on the men’s side. The first is Daniel Kraft. He is doing it again after finishing second overall last year. He ran under the old record and is the second fastest person ever to do the Ridge Run.

Another person that looks to have podium finish potential is Jimmy Grant. In Montana area races, he’s proven to have the speed and running talent to master the Ridge. But Jimmy lacks the on course experience that Daniel has as it will be Jimmy’s first Ridge Run. Those that have done the Ridge Run know that just running speed potential does not always translate to success on a rugged rocky course like the Ridge Run. There are several other runners that I am not familiar with that have projected fast times for themselves, so this year could be a competitive race.

For the women, both last year’s winner, Minde Erickson and last year’s runner up, Alyssa Larsen are entered again. Last year women’s race unfolded with a lot of drama and excitement. For those into numerology, both Minde and Alyssa have 5 life path numbers and last year, 2012, was also a 5 year. Numerology-wise it was a rare culmination of 5 energy. Everything came together for a very exciting race.

I would be surprised if this year, 2013 a 6 year, is as close and dramatic with as many lead changes as last year. Fortunately, this year’s roster is graced with the presence of Nikki Kimball, the only woman to ever break 4 hours on the Ridge. Nikki is now in her forties and is on the mend from some injuries, so breaking her own course record of 3:43 could prove to be a challenge. But look for Nikki to go under 4 hours again and certainly break the 40-49 age group course record. Maybe she will inspire Alyssa and Minde to both set PRs for a second year in a row.

The name Danelle Ballengee also stands out. Coincidently (no such thing as coincident eh?), this blog recently mentioned her in a previous blog post. It is my understanding that just a short two weeks prior to the Ridge Run, Danelle will be doing the Speedgoat 50K down in Utah. So she will either be super fit or perhaps still a little tired from that effort. It will be inspiring to have her in the field. Last fall, I did a race that Danelle was the race director of, but this will be the first race since the Aspen Fila Sky Marathon of 15 or so years ago, that I will have the pleasure of actually running in the same race as Danelle.

    I see that Anne Trygstad decided to run again. She is going to smash the 70 age group record by at least 2hrs probably, lol.
