Sage Canaday of Boulder, Colo, claimed his first men’s ultra championship and set the course record while Michele Yates (Estes Park, Colo.) added another title to her resume Saturday during the USATF 100 km Trail Championships held in Bandera, Texas.

Canaday’s winning time of 8:13.49 bettered Dave Mackey’s course record of 8:16.48, which was set in 2011. Canaday’s victory came more than 40 minutes ahead of Mackey (Novato, Calif.), who won the masters competition for the second consecutive year in a time of 8:53.27.

Yates, who also won the 50-mile trail championships in 2011, recorded a winning time Saturday of 10:08.48. She finished ahead of Melanie Fryar (San Antonio, Texas), who placed second in a time of 10:17.30. Liza Howard (San Antonio, Texas), who was the defending champion in the race, placed fourth overall to claim the masters competition.
