Cassie Scallon holds down the number 5 spot. Scallon, a nurse from Boulder, Colorado, set course records at three highly competitive 50-mile runs during the year, Lake Sonoma, Ice Age and Tussey Mountainback. In all, she won four races during the year, showing she has fully recovered from the injury that kept her on “injured reserve” for much of 2012.
