With over 800 runners hailing from Denver, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins, Boulder and Steamboat Springs, among others, the competition in the Steamboat Half-Marathon was steep. But Craig bested all its larger Colorado counterparts, placing seven runners in the top 50, more than any other city represented in the race. Craig was led by Todd Trapp, who finished second with a time of 1:19:37. Trapp met his goal time in the race, but was hoping to win the race as well. “My goal was to run between 1:20 and 1:25, so to be under 1:20 was something I was happy with,” Trapp said. “It’s tough because I wanted to win the race, but the other guy ran tougher.”
