Marlo's 26th...

marloMarlo McGaver (photo) called the humid conditions at Coon Rapids Regional Park on Saturday "oppressive." Cool word.

It wasn't oppressive enough to keep her from posting her 26th career multisport win since her arrival in Minnesota (from Laramie, Wyoming) in 2005. The event--the 2nd annual Du the Dam--consisted of a pair of 3.2 mile runs bracketing a 14 mile bike leg. The statuesque McGaver, who would finish 4th overall, covered the syrupy distance in 1:22:44, a 4:05 improvement on the winning time in 2009.

The men's winner was Chad Millner, who went off the front early and kept himself out-of-sight for most of the race. His convincing victory was his 2nd of the season and took the old men's CR down by a plumply 4:32....

Sixty-three athletes finished the inaugural edition of this event. This year's race drew 179 entrants, 164 of whom crossed the finish line. DU THE DAM RESULTS
