Barr Trail Mountain Race

The 2015 Barr Trail Mountain Race in Manitou Springs, CO, featured an amazing come-from-behind victory by Andy Wacker. Having set his alarm for PM instead of AM (who hasn’t done that before?) he arrived at the start line 7 minutes late, but still managed to pass everyone in the field to cross the line first.

The finish did have some additional controversy, when a volunteer course worker directed the first few runners down Barr to finish, instead of down Ruxton Avenue. This resulted in Wacker making the pass for the lead in the final yards when the leader turned down Hydro Street instead of continuing on to the finish line. Wacker initially followed him, but realized his mistake and corrected first.
