About 100 brave souls took to the trails of Fonte in Sunday morning’s XTERRA Guam Out-N-Back Attack Trail Run – an 8.2-mile trek that definitely tested the endurance of many.

Except maybe the top finishers that includes overall winner Jesse Barragan, an ultra-marathoner who visits Guam periodically throughout the year as a federal employee with the Department of Agriculture.

The 35-year-old from Folson, CA blazed through the tough course in a time of 56 minutes, 40 seconds – the only runner to finish under an hour.

Consider it a warm-up, if you will, for someone like Barragan who specializes in ultra-marathon trail runs in the states.

“Typically 50K (31 miles) or every once in a while, a 50-mile race – normally on the mountain trails,” Barragan said about his usual runs.

“Today was awesome. It was excellent. It was the first time I did an XTERRA out here,” he said. “It was very different from what I’m used to.”

The course started at the top of Nimitz Hill by the old Guam High School with a quick drop down to the Fonte Valley to the Navy pipeline. The decline continued through the trails toward Charlie Corn Lane behind the old Ordot Landfill before heading back up and ending with the steep incline in the final half mile.

“It was slippery,” Barragan added. “It was muddy and the sword grass was an interesting challenge. I’m used to dry courses.”

Coming in second place was current XTERRA Guam local champion Gabe Lombard, who started out fast and finished strong at 1:00:59. Fellow triathlete Cameron O’Neal was third in 1:03:45.

“He’s a phenomenal runner,” Lombard said about Barragan. “It was great having some new blood out there to compete with.”

21-year-old Peri Bowman won the women’s division and was an incredible fourth overall in 1:04:21. Pro triathlete Meiko Carey was second in 1:10:17.

“Guam has got to have some of the most uniquely challenging and simultaneously trails in the world,” Lombard added. “It was an incredible experience and a huge congratulations to all the finishers and a big thanks to XTERRA Guam.”
