The Crystal 50 and the Crystal 100
Hiawatha Highlands
Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario
November 6, 2004

The conditions for the 3rd annual event were very good with mostly sunny skies and temperatures between 7 and 10 degrees. The trails were wet and muddy in places with a couple of trees down from the recent high winds.

Sean Poynton and Mario Festival were the only finishers with Festival setting a new course record. There were at least a dozen other runners that covered part of the distance. The course consisted of a 2 Km loop followed by four 12 Km loops of the Crystal trail system including all the extensions.

Results:
Mario Festival      4:10:22
Sean Poynton      5:17:19
