2009 Backcountry Run Results


The closest race, start to finish, of Saturday’s Elephant’s Perch Backcountry Run was the 10-miler between defending champion Morgan Arritola (left) and Boise’s Michelle Jensen. Arritola, 23, made it two straight 10-mile wins at 1.07:05. Just 12 seconds behind was 39-year-old marvel Jensen (1.07:17), the 2005 Backcountry Run 10-mile women’s winner and a five-time 16.5-mile queen in 2008, 2002, 1999, 1997 and 1995.
