Provo, UT, June 11, 2022, 26th Squaw Peak 50 Mile Trail Run—Jesse Rich of Salt Lake City won the 26th Annual Squaw Peak 50 Mile Trail Run in 8:31:02. He won the 50-mile race by 40 minutes, in likely the hottest year in the 26- year history of the race.
Hilary Hawes of Saratoga Springs, UT won in 10:10:12 in her very first ultra. Only six men finished ahead of Hawes; those six men were the only finishers under ten hours on the very hot day.
Nicholas Sourlos of Draper, UT was second and first master in 9:11:59. James MacDonald of Provo, UT was third and second master in 9:14:06. Michael Braman of Provo, UT was fourth in 9:45:07. Jeremy Hurl of Draper, UT was fifth and third master in 9:51:35. Ian Farris of Draper, UT was seventh in 9:55:35, and he’s a master, too. Race Director John Bozung has carvings for top two overall and top two masters, so not sure how this played out with no double-dipping.
Elizabeth Helland of Colorado Springs, CO was second in 10:18:07 and she’s a master. Megan Drake of Orem, UT was third in 10:28:28. Lori Castagnetto of Provo, UT was fourth and second master in 11:08:42. Laynie Markisich of Salt Lake City was fifth in 11:31:08. Megan Bowen of Bozeman, MT was sixth in 11:37:12.
The heat took quite a toll on the finisher count and the start count as well. 222 total finishers completed 50 miles in the stifling heat. 42 women and 180 men finished. 320 were registered, and many took the generous deferment to 2023.
