Iola Bump & Jump Kicks Off WORS `05

The Wisconsin Off Road Series sponsored by Subaru, began its 14th season of the with the Iola Bump & Jump in Iola, WI on Sunday, May 15. The WORS faithful, including several who have been racing with us for several years, were greeted by cool and cloudy conditions. Following several days of light rain, the usually dry and dusty Bump & Jump course was in near perfect condition allowing competitors to get a excellent gage of their early season fitness.

The trail runners were the first to hit the course with a 9:00 start. WORS has reorganized its trail run series and moved to establish an independent idenity for the series and the efforts of new WORS Trail Run Series director, Gassandra Gran, looked to be paying off the TDS Trail Run saw an increase in participation by over 50% from previous years. For the short course, it was 15 year old Nichole Blahnik (Antigo, WI) running a 22:46 who took the top spot for the women, while Jeremy Johanski (Green Bay, WI) took the win for the men. Winners of the long course were Lisa Schreiner of Racine, WI and Eddie Holzen of Appleton, WI. For complete results and more information on WORS Trail Running, visit
