Fifty-one runners led by Williams College sophomore Will Wicherski and XTerra world champion trail runner Morgan Arritola enjoyed perfect racing conditions and braved a challenging 6.2-mile course Saturday for the Wood River YMCA Dollar Mountain 10-kilometer Trail Run.

Wicherski smashed the course record of the third annual event with a time of 47 minutes and 57 seconds. It was good for a 2:52 victory over second-place Zach Burney (50:49). Arritola, 26, sliced 88 seconds off her winning time in last year's Dollar 10k to finish fourth overall in 51:03.

A cross-country skier from Boise High School and the Bogus Basin Nordic program, the 19-year-old Wicherski was a silver and bronze medalist at January's U.S. Nordic Ski Championships in Maine. He qualified for and competed in February's FIS Junior World Championships in Turkey.

Burney, 20, ran track for Columbia High School in Nampa and Treasure Valley Community College in Ontario, Ore. He was the runner-up in the 2011 Sun Valley Half Marathon on a 13.1-mile course.

After completing the run, many of Saturday's runners headed to Fire Services Appreciation Day to participate in the 5B Crossfit challenge fundraiser. Race organizer Brad Mitchell thanked The Elephants Perch, Scott Sport and La Sportiva for awards and raffle prizes; and the Community School and Sun Valley Company for services support.
