Mt. Madonna Challenge race results

Mark Lucas of Monterey, led all in the 6K Salamander racer with a time of 23:54 or about 67 seconds off of the course record during Sunday’s Mt. Madonna Challenge. Salinas’s Tina Chacon triumphed over all of the women participants in the 6K with a time of 29:02.

David Bouley wasn’t among the top finishers in the Mt. Madonna Challenge 12K race at Sprig Lake into Mt Madonna County Park on Sunday.

In fact, Bouley finished only ahead of a few of the runners. But Bouley was not only the first finisher in the 70 Plus Men’s Division but he also was among the survivors of the yellow jacket swarms that some of the 12K runners encountered on the way up the Sprig Trail.

Bouley and about 10 other runners were stung as they either ran through or ran away from the yellow jacket swarm. Bouley was stung 53 times but managed to get through the swarm and continue on the trail.

Some runners returned via the Sprig Lake Trail and others were able to get on past the swarm.

Torben Nielson from from Copenhagen, Denmark won the Mt. Madonna Challenge with one of the outstanding times ever recorded on the Mt. Madonnna course (46:44).

He and most of the early finishers were able to pass the spot where the yellow jackets swarmed prior to swarming. Angela Hernandez. A Gilroy resident, led the women finishers with another outstanding time of 58:55.

The Mt. Madonna Challenge benefited the South Valley Symphony’s Holiday concert for this December and has been a tradition since 1975 and a benefit to the Symphony since 1985. Organizers estimate that about 5,000 was raised.
