The Unspoken Rules of Being a Badass: A Runner's Guide

Jason Loyd Win’s The Sequoyah Marathon

Brentwood native Jason Loyd won The Sequoyah Marathon at Pinson Mounds State Park on November 25, 2018 with a new personal record time of 3:14:33. It was a fourteen minute PR for Loyd who had last set it at the same race in 2016.

A speedy three-some that included Jackson natives Karl Studtmann and Randy Broadway along with Loyd blurred around the 2.91 mile looped course for the first 10+ miles together as those in attendance enjoyed the smoke show as these men seemed as if they had been catapulted out of a jet from the rest of the field.

Loyd was on a rail, extremely consistent with his splits around 7:30’s as Stuntman and Broadway fell back off the strong pace. Broadway stayed close in second for several miles, with Studtmann falling back to third place, as Jason started to run off away with it eventually leaving Broadway behind by a good bit.

Studtmann then passed Broadway for second around mile eighteen. Karl put some substantial distance between him and Randy, as Randy, with the win out of sight, went into conservation mode for his 100K the following weekend in Kentucky. Karl took second place with a strong showing in 3:26:20 with Randy rounding out the men’s podium in 3:43:50.

It’s the first win for Loyd and would have been a BQ time if only the course was a BQ certified course.

Canadian Marylou Corino, running her third consecutive day of races after back to back 40 milers, was the female winner in 4:07:17. Corino completed four races over the three days and was the female winner, not only at The Sequoyah Marathon, but also at the Black Diamond 40 Miler and Double Black Diamond 40 Miler.

The Sequoyah Marathon female top three was rounded out by Heather Coon in 4:22:38 and sixteen-year old Morgan Seech running her marathon debut in 4:40:06.
