2013 Speedgoat 50k Men’s Race

Sage Canaday and Max King took the race out in the early miles, jointing leading halfway through the first 8.3 mile climb. That’s when Canaday made a move in hopes of catching the $1,000 prime atop Hidden Peak. He captured that prime before building a 9-minute lead by mile 21.

At the same time King and Anton Krupicka settled in together and ran within 50 meters of one another until shortly after hitting the Larry’s Hole aid station at mile 21. That’s when Anton Krupicka went into hunting mode as he knew he closed 9 minutes on Kilian Jornet in the final 10 miles in last year’s race. He closed the gap to 4 minutes behind Canaday at the top of the final summit at mile 26, but could only come within 90 seconds before the finish.
