Juneau trio runs Napa Valley marathon

Three runners from Juneau completed the Napa Valley Marathon on Sunday in Napa Valley, Calif.

Pat Gullufsen covered the 26-mile, 385-yard course in 3 hours, 59 minutes, 39 seconds to finish in 457th place. Jessica Menendez was 483rd in 4:01:55 and Reed Stoops took 530th place in 4:05:58.

The race was won by Anthony Crudale of Las Vegas, who covered the course in 2:42:27, finishing more than five minutes ahead of Denver's Andy Bupp who took second place in 2:47:43. Michael Kramer of Fairbanks finished fourth in 2:52:45. The women's winner was Miriam Schmidt of Bonny Doon, Calif., who took eighth place averall in 2:53:14.

Menendez said the three Juneau runners were together looking at all finishing in under 3:55, but the rainy weather turned worse.

"Up until 20 miles were were looking at a time of less than 3:55," Menendez said. "It was raining, but that's no problem for us being from Juneau. But then it started pouring, and about Mile 20 we came into a valley and the wind really kicked up. Our 8:40 miles became 9:20 miles and we started thinking maybe we might have a shot at four hours. At Mile 24, that's when Pat realized he could make four hours and he pulled on ahead."
