Amanda (Shumway) Grimes, a 1997 Middle Park High School graduate, made the 48-hour official finishing cut in the Hardrock 100-Mile Endurance run July 11-13 in the San Juan Mountains near Silverton.

In addition to covering slightly more than 100 miles, the race features 32,992 feet of vertical gain and overall some 67,000 feet of elevation change, never falling below 7,500 feet and topping out a nearly 14,000 feet.

More than 1,200 endurance runners applied for the 140 race slots.

Grimes, who was part of the MPHS cross country team and now lives in Steamboat Springs, finished the race in 47 hours, 50 minutes. She is the daughter of Gene and Sandra Shumway of Granby.

“I’m so proud her,” said her father.
