Uli Steidl of Shoreline, Washington and Caitlin Smith of Oakland, California were the winners at The North Face Endurance Challenge's championship event held in the Marin Headlands. Steidl, who also won here in 2007, outpaced Geoff Roes for the win. The men's field was especially deep, as ultra stars like Leigh Schmitt, Dave Mackey and David James were unable to crack the top five.

Steidl finding out how good he can be

Steidl was, until recently, a chemist and high school teacher who ran. Now, he is the runner who happens to hold undergraduate and master's degrees in chemistry, and to the students at Edmonds-Woodway High School, is a substitute teacher.

At the Boston Marathon on April 16, the Shoreline resident finished 12th in a field that included many of the world's elite runners. In poor weather with a strong headwind, his finish and time -- 2 hours, 19 minutes and 54 seconds -- were among the best ever for a man from the state of Washington.
