Carson City runner wins Ponderosa Ridge Run

A hilly 9.5-mile high-elevation trail run from Spooner Summit to Kingsbury Grade didn’t scare away distance runners on Saturday.

In fact, 16 runners completed the rugged Ponderosa Ridge Run, with Carson City’s Sean Lehmann leading the way.

Lehmann finished in 1 hour, 35 minutes and 3 seconds – a little more than a minute ahead of Kevin Peterson.

South Lake Tahoe’s Doug Cichowicz was fifth in 1:44:14, and 73-year-old Elmer Sanborn completed the task in 2:17:16.
