History: Golden Leaf?
September 29, 2014
"Mud brown and summer green were the dominant colors at the annual Golden Leaf Mini Marathon Sunday as a wet summer left the foliage green and the dirt wet for 164 runners traversing the 13.1 mile course from Snowmass to Aspen," described The Aspen Times on Sept. 27, 1984. That year Jim Hogue finished with the fastest time — 1:21:48 — in the race, which "many runners said was far more treacherous than the 1983 run." Ann Stockman had the best time among the women runners with a time of 1:48:41. Dianne Green (pictured) brought the race home with the sweep crew (behind) as the last of the runners to finish the race in such slippery conditions.
