Isaac Weinberg, a 10-year-old student at Strawberry Park Elementary School, left everything he had on the 5K course at the annual Spring Creek Memorial Trail Run on Saturday, July 23. 

The races were part of the Steamboat Springs running series, and maybe one of the most impressive of Weinberg’s young running career. 

Amongst a sea of teenagers and adults, at the front of the pack was Weinberg, who finished the 5K third overall at 22 minutes, 20 seconds.



Weinberg came with his father Glen, who also ran the race but came in nearly three minutes behind his son. 

Glen said he was proud of his son but knew Isaac had it in him all along. 



“I’m not surprised,” Glen said. “He runs with us, he loves it and he just hauls.”

Isaac crossed the finish line and took several minutes to catch his breath, showing just how hard he had pushed himself to finish so quickly.

Fans at the finish line were struck by his performance and almost questioned if he was competing in the race. They simply could not believe a boy so young would string together such an incredible run. 

Isaac was happy with his time, and he explained that he has been running at a high volume for a couple years now. 

“I started inside the quarantine because I had nothing to do, and I just kinda got into it,” he said. 

The Spring Creek Memorial Trail Run consisted of two races — a 9.5 mile loop course and the 5K. 

Race Director Cara Marrs looks forward it every year, as the run has become one of her favorites in the running series.

“It’s one of the most popular trails in town and also one of the prettiest, so I love it,” Marrs said. 

The race was originally started by Ken Brenner, whose sister Patty Brenner Hagberg was killed by a truck on the lower part of the Spring Creek Trail in 1991. The run’s purpose is to both honor Hagberg and remind the community about sharing multi-purpose use trails and being cautious in these public spaces. 

The winner of the 9.5 mile run was 41-year-old Jordan Jones, who completed the race in 1:09:12. 

Marrs stressed the difficulty of this course and how wild it is for runners to be completing it so quickly. There are roots and rocks at every step and areas where the runners have to leap over logs and other obstructions. 

This race is one of the most fun for the runners in the series and has been a staple for 30 years. 

“It’s a great tradition, this race, and we typically don’t have a problem with anything,” Marrs said. “It’s a race that always has a really good feel about it, and we’re just thankful for everybody that comes out and all of our sponsors, and we always have good giveaways at this race. It’s fun.”
