KEENE VALLEY — The Mountaineer gear store’s annual Great Adirondack Trail Run drew just about a hundred trail runners to the two runs in Keene Valley on Saturday.

More than 60 people took part in the 11.5-mile long run, while more than three dozen did the 3.5-mile “fun run.”

The long run goes up the back side of Hopkins Mountain and then down to Keene Valley with nearly 3,000 feet of elevation gain. The fun run started across the street from the Baxter Mountain Tavern at The Mountaineer store.

Matthew Harrison was the overall winner of the long run, finishing in 1 hour, 44 minutes and 20 seconds. He was followed by Nick Arndt (1:44:54) and Matthew Daly (1:54:23). Megan Papineau (2:20:44) led the women in the race and was followed by Bekkah Bond (2:21:44) and Rebecca Hamel (2:24:14).

In the shorter run, Noah El Rimawi-Fine (23 minutes, 29 seconds) was the fastest man and the overall winner, while Lucy Hockschartner (26:48) was the fastest woman and third overall. Andy Wekin (25:27) came in second for the men while Patrick Daly (27:13) was third. Jackie Garso (27:51) came in second for the women and was followed by Nina Armstrong (28:07).
