Two Women Beat All Teams at TransRockies Run

Magda

We need more female role models in sports, and it looks like Magdalena Boulet and Caitlin Smith have stepped up to the plate. Together, they won the Women’s Open Division at the PepsiCo TransRockies Run yesterday.

They won each of the six stages of the TransRockies, and took first in the overall teams and the women’s division with a cumulative time of 18:47:32 for 120 miles and more than 20,000 feet of elevation gain. They beat every single team, every single day!

The race course included a mix of single-track and forest road through the heart of the White River and San Isabel National Forests, reaching altitudes of over 12,500 feet.

Magdalena Boulet is a 2008 Olympic marathon competitor, ultra marathoner and GU Energy VP of Innovation, Research & Development.

Caitlin Smith is a 2012 Olympic marathon trial qualifier and holds 42 first-place ultra marathon finishes and 26 course records.

Congrats, ladies!
