Pocono Xterra Seven Tubs Race experiences 50% increase
Rich Pias

For the second time in two races this season, the field in the Pocono Xterra Series has grown by almost 50%. "This is awesome news for trail runners" said Richard Burgender who travels from Pittsburgh to attend the spectacular and challenging courses of NEPA. "The Tubs is the most under-rated and under-appreciated course in all of Xterra" Burgender won the series title last year but has struggled in 2012 as more and more runners from New Jersey, New York and central PA enter the races.
But on Saturday, the Seven Tubs race was won by upstart James Ryan, the local 19-year old who has won the only two trail races he ever entered. "This is SO much fun! This course is like a roller-coaster ride in the woods". Ryan covered the 2.8 mile course in 21:35. That time may sound slow unless you consider the 600 vertical feet that Ryan climbed. Twenty year-old Tyler Angeli from Shickshinny was second and 22-year old Luke Shillington (also from Shickshinny) was third.
The female winner of the Big Pocono State Park race, Jaclyn Shokey from Jim Thorpe, easily captured the ladies title at the Seven Tubs in 25:26. "This is one of my favorite courses. Very fast, very steep and it ends before it kills you" Rebecca Barritt of Wilkes Barre was second female and Stacey Zander of Lewisburg was third.
The Pocono Xterra Season moves to Hickory Run State Park on Saturday, June 2. Registration is $20 by mail. Proceeds from the Wendy's Pocono Xterra Series support local foster care and adoption. For more information visit www.wilkesbarreracing.com
