2012 Results Under gray skies and a pre start downpour that carried on for the first 5 miles 450 runners towed the starting line for the 24th HAT Run. Light showers continued on and off for the day. Trails that were perfect under near 80 degrees temps on Friday were slick and treacherous on Saturday. However that did deter first time HAT runner and first time ultra runner from nearly breaking four hours. Caleb Masland in his first race over the a marathon (which his current PR is 2:35) from leading the race from start to finish. His early lead of 20 minutes was slowly whittled down by a number of veterans but by not enough. Congratulations to the 391 finishers - under somewhat miserable conditions - but a great day to run!In the womens race Kristin van Eron lead the womens field from the start as well. Second place finisher Jacqueline Palmer closed down a 5 minute gap and came within 36 seconds of Kristin. Megan McNew rounded out the top three women- all were under 5 hours.
