The inaugural SLO (San Luis Obispo, CA) Ultra — a trail-running running event that includes a 50-mile ultra marathon, marathon, half marathon and 5-mile hike — was run September 10 at Wild Cherry Canyon in Avila Beach. The event, to benefit The Land Conservancy of San Luis Obispo County, was sold out with 1,200 runners. The 50 mile ultra featured 9,500 feet of elevation change, with 125 runners starting, and 93 finishers. FabTime President Frank Chance finished the 50 mile ultra in just over 15 hours. FabTime's Senior Industrial Engineer Mike Krist paced him for the last 19 miles. Beth Chance ran the half marathon, which had an elevation change of 2,750 feet, and finished in 2 hours and 45 minutes.
