Red Wing, MN – Sept. 9, 2009 –Vasque athlete, Bryan Dayton won the Breck Crest Mountain Half Marathon in Breckenridge, Colorado this past Labor Day weekend, with a time of 1:53, the fastest time posted in the past 3 years. Dayton gave an impressive performance on the difficult course that runs well above the tree line and offers stunning views.

“It was a good run. I felt pretty rough at the top (12,700 ft) and had some altitude issues but they subsided on the downhill and I started feeling better. I tried to focus on the trail as not to fall since I am now paranoid after the Pikes Marathon. But I had a strong run and I felt great afterwards,” said Dayton. Dayton was outfitted in the new trail running shoe set for release spring of 2010, the Transistor.

Dayton has had a strong season so far with the top finish at the highest road race in the US, the Mt. Evans ascent, a 5th place finish at the difficult Leadville Trail Marathon, and a 7th place finish at the Pikes Peak marathon. Next up for Dayton is the Rock/Creek Stump Jump in Chattanooga, TN, October 3rd, where he currently holds the course record. The trail runs along the Cumberland Plateau from Chattanooga to Cumberland Gap and all proceeds raised from the event go to benefit the Cumberland Trail Conference, a non-profit organization committed to the completion and maintenance of the 300+ mile long Cumberland Trail.
