The five race directors of the Western New York Ultra Series have unanimously recognized Rebecca Harman as the 2005 Western New York Ultra Runner of the Year.  Harman set new race records at the Highland Forest 1-2-3, the Mendon Trail Run 50K and in the non-scoring 50K at the Finger Lakes Fifties.  In each of those races (see partial results below), she led all women start to finish and was competitive for the overall win with the fastest open men. 

Harman's 2005 Highland Forest record is faster than that of the winning man for 6 of the last 8 years.  Her 2005 Mendon Trail record is faster than that of the winning man for 4 of the last 6 years.  It is only a matter of time before she joins the ranks of the elite women who have won an ultra outright. 

In addition to three ultra wins in Western New York, Harman finished 11th overall and first place woman at the Hinte-Anderson Trail Run.  She also had a 5:17:06 finish in the 2005 Tupper Lake Tinman Triathlon.  Harman is a very active member of the Finger Lakes Runners Club and is the Race Director of the renowned Monster Marathon Trail Runs.
