Muddiest Runners

<< Back to History Page

There have been over 20,000 finishers of the Leatherman’s Loop in 31 years. Over 10,000 different runners are represented as finishers. For the past few years, around 60% of Loop runners are returning to run a second loop or higher. On the flip side, each year sees around 40% of the field as brand new runners new to the Loop.Below is a list, to the best of our knowledge, of all loop runners with seven (7) or more finishes to their credit – aka “The Muddiest Runners.”

The is based off the results boards here plus the transcribed results here. Thanks to Mel Cowgill for going back and transcribing the results from the poster boards and putting it into a format where we could figure out all this stuff.

A small selection of the 176 different runners with more than 10 Loops under their belt as of 2017: Adrienne Morgan, Nick Ohnell, Kevin Cotter, Bill Bradsell, Paul Muessig, Carol Kane, Rick Hubbell (27!), Joe Stanley (all 30!), Bob & Doug Goldblatt, Eddie “The Plumber” Donlon, George “Cannonball” Buchanan, Kerry Arsenault, Gerry Sullivan, Mike Paletta, Shirley Iselin, John Krasniewicz, Thomas McShane.

We have also put a page here showing every runner who has 5 or more Loops under their belt plus highest finish and best time recorded.

There are 475 Runners with 7 or more Loops under their belts listed below (*means ran in the most recent Loop). 202 of these muddiest runners ran in the latest year. Some of the others took the year off while others have moved away or retired their running shoes.

*Indicates active in latest year

**Indicates new member of the Muddiest Runners 
  page (44 new members in 2017). Congratulations!

If your name does not appear and you think it should, take a look at the transcribed results and the results boards to help us track down your results. Anyone who is on the above list is guaranteed a spot in the Loop as long as they register for the Lottery and their name, age, and registration email address match our records.

Each year we will update this list after we induct new runners into the Muddiest Runners list after they have completed their 7th Loop.

It is possible, for example, if you ran under “Bob Smith” one year and “Robert Smith” or “R. Smith” in other years we might not have caught the different spellings and joined them up. It’s also possible that we totally butchered the spelling of your last name (we apologize!) on some of the entries or during the transcription from the results boards. We have done our best to catch these mistakes but sometimes they slip through.

If you see a problem, drop us a note pointing us to any information you find that supports your claim. Another possibility is if you changed you name due to change in marital status. Unless we were invited to the wedding, it’s pretty hard for us to know that! 😉 Let us know where to look in the results and we’ll link up your different names.

We won’t just add your name on your say so — we need some evidence to back up your claim. Help us out by checking the results boards and the transcribed results. It is all there (well, except one photo of a results page from 1995, but those are in the transcribed results).

Note: if you ran under someone else’s bib (Bandit/Turkey) we will not adjust the results to reflect those runs.

There are an additional 195 runners with 6 Loops plus another 311 runners who have run 5 Loops. This makes 981 runners who have run 5 or more Loops (see the list of all runners with more than 5 Loops run).

We have a list of these runners so if you think you are close to 7 or just want to know how many Loops we have tracked for you, get in touch (Don’t expect a quick answer if you get in touch in late March or April though! ;-)). Or you can look up our listing as of the latest loop year.
