SoHi graduate Newbould takes 10th at U.S. Mountain Running Championships

Brandon Newbould, a 2000 graduate of Soldotna High School, took 10th in the 2019 U.S. Mountain Running Championships on Sunday in Waterville Valley, New Hampshire.

The race on the 7-mile course with 3,000 feet of elevation gain and loss was used to determine the U.S. Mountain Running Team, with the top four men and women earning that honor.

Joseph Gray of Colorado Springs, Colorado, won the men’s race at 52:51, while Newbould, a 38-year-old living in Nottingham, New Hampshire, ran 59:03. An old running and cross-country skiing rival from Colony High School, Eric Strabel, also 38, finished 17th at 1:01:01. Strabel now lives in Anchorage.

Denali Strabel, 30, of Anchorage was 17th in 1:18:35, with Grayson Murphy of Salt Lake City, Utah, picking up the victory in 1:01:45. Strabel graduated from Seward High School in 2008.
