The Winter Series includes short- and long-course races. Runners covered courses of 3.3 miles and 7 miles at Cheyenne Mountain State Park. James Burns, who won the shorts series last year, showed that he is again the runner to beat. Burns dashed over a hilly, snow-coverd course in 18 minutes, 4 seconds, a new age-group (25-29) course record. In the women's race, Sheila Geere, 50, took the win with an age-group (50-54) record of 23:33.

Sixteen years and many miles later, Goecker made the decision to compete in races. She chose the Fall Series and it turned out to be a wise decision indeed. Goecker won the four-race series finale at Palmer Park on Sunday and captured the series title.<br /> It wasn't easy, as Elizabeth Schultz, a newcomer to the Colorado Springs running community, won two of the four races and pushed Goecker every step of the way.<br /> "She did really well," Goecker said. "It was definitely a challenge."<br /> Goecker covered the tricky singletrack course - it was about 6.5 to 7 miles in length - in 59 minutes, 31 seconds. Connilee Walter was second among the women runners in 1:00:07, followed by Schultz in 1:00:15.<br /> Goecker finished the series with a cumulative time of 2:45:09, about 1:42 ahead of Schultz.

Nichols survived one of the toughest courses ever designed by longtime director Larry Miller. The course was billed at 5.5 miles, but was more like 5.1. Still, Miller included some of the most technical singletrack in Colorado Springs and found some steep hills that tested all of the runners.<br /> Nichols finished in 31 minutes, 46 seconds. Elizabeth Schultz held off series leader Crystal Goecker to take her second-consecutive win. Schultz clocked 41:17 with Goecker finishing a stride behind.<br /> More running and cycling coverage here <a href="http://www.pikespeaksports.us/">http://www.pikespeaksports.us/</a>.
