Race Results



(Rev. 6/02/04) 38th Mt. Wilson Trail Race Won With (Unofficial) Time of 59:09 by Matt Ebiner of Covina


The 38th Mount Wilson Trail Race was run on Saturday, May 29th by 292 hearty (and hardy) souls.  Unofficially, the winner of the race, with a time of 59:09, was 43-year old Matt Ebiner of Covina.  Ebiner cut nearly five minutes off his time from last year, when he came in third, with a time of 1:04.33.  26-Year old Kevin Koeper of Arcadia, who won the race in 200 and 2001, came in second with a time of 1:00:30.  325 people had filled out applications to run, and that's the maximum allowed.  On race day, 292 of them signed in.  According to an as yet unconfirmed report, one of the racers left the trail in an ambulance, meaning 291 finished the race.  The results show 289 times, so we are assuming that two people finished the race after the official timekeeping had ended.   The youngest applicant was just 10 years old, Trent Benson of Sierra Madre.  The fastest female in the race was 35-year old Sharon Pevsner, pictured below left. Sharon's time was 1:21:10.  A crowd of several hundred turned out to cheer on the runners, enjoy coffee and breakfast at local shops, and visit the booths set up in Kersting Court.  In addition to sponsor's booths, there were booths set up by the Sierra Madre Historical Preservation Society and Dr. Bill White, whose booth detailed the history of the trail and the race.  In addition, there was a big screen display of a well-produced video by local resident  Denny Barry and Denny Barry Productions, which also provided information on the history of the trail and of the trail race, featuring Dr. White and John Robinson, noted San Gabriel Mountain historian and author, as well as several local residents, recalling the glory days of the trail when there were several overnight camps along the way. Sponsors of this year's race were Commercial Imaging Solutions, Mountain Views Newspaper, New Balance, Patagonia, Run With Us, and the Sierra Madre Brewing Company2.  The Mt. Wilson Trail Race is put on each year by the Mt. Wilson Trail Race Committee, Sierra Madre Community Services Department, Sierra Madre Civic Club and Sierra Madre Search and Rescue.  Additional support was provided by Trader Joe's, Howie's Ranch Market, and Leonora Moss.  Many other local businesses donated prizes for a runner's raffle, and Patagonia also conducted a raffle this year, with proceeds to assist in providing maintenance of the trail.
