2014 Zumbro Recap

Posted by on Apr 19, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

By John Storkamp – Race Director When “Zumbro” first started it was merely a fun-run put on by our long-bearded friend, Larry “the Oracle” Pederson – all I can remember about those early runs over a decade ago and the first few years of the race for that matter were placid, fairly dry Spring days.  Before taking over as director of the race I had the oportunity to run the 100, it was a hot and dry day, I ran without a shirt all day and only a t-shirt at night, in the AM when I slowed I eventually put on a...

2013 Zumbro Recap

Posted by on Apr 16, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

The 2013 Zumbro Endurance Run 100MI, 50MI and 26.2MI are in the books!  It should be of no surprise that when you have an early Spring race in Minnesota, eventually you will have one with some snow.  After a decade of snow-free trail-running in the Zumbro Bottoms this same weekend each year, it finally happened and in a big messy way. Leading up to this years race it was fun to see the difference in individuals reactions to the conditions.  Some folks were filled with anxiety, certain that it was the end of the world – others were cool,...

Two Seconds with Bob Gerenz – An Interview

Posted by on Apr 1, 2013 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Rarely does a race come down to a couple of seconds – never does a hundred.  In 2012, Bob Gerenz (then, relatively unknown in the Midwest ultra scene)  put his head down, kicked and kicked again and took the win – only two seconds separated him and the 2nd place finisher.  We threw a few questions at Bob about the exciting 2012 race as he prepares to come back and defend his title in 2013. Bob, congratulations on winning the 2012 Zumbro 100 Mile Endurance Run and setting a new course record.  Was this your first time running the...
