Q&A with Fall Trophy Series Leaders

Pennsylvania runners represent strongly across the board

alt

With just one racing weekend left in the 2013 Trophy Series, and plenty of race results still rolling in, competition is getting down to the wire. Will the forerunners in each category maintain their lead?

With a strong representation from Pennsylvania runners, especially in the non-ultra categories, many of the current leaders are accustomed to racing against one another. "One of the best things about running in Central Pennsylvania is the quality of the competition," says Jeff Smucker, 47, of Woodward, Pennsylvania, who is currently in the lead in the Male Non-Ultra 40-49 age group. "Nine of the 10 age group leaders in the series are people I run against in almost every race. They are fast, gracious in victory and defeat, and fun to hang around with after the races. They push me and make me a better runner and I certainly enjoy getting a chance to beat them every now and then."

In the following pages, we chat with some of the top runners in different categories, ranging from non-ultra age group leaders to ultra leaders to the those who’ve run the most Trophy Series races.
