Prominence Health sets a record for the course; Eclipse wins Open Women’s Division

Three years after its last performance, Reno Tahoe Odyssey is back in all its glory on Friday and Saturday, full of clever team names and crazy costumes, and a dominant team effort.

The Prominence Health team of 11 set a course record by completing the 178-mile relay in 16 hours, 40 minutes, 35 seconds (5:37) on a track that starts at Ring’s Wingfield Park, winds around Lake Tahoe and ends in Idlewild Park.

Prominence Health broke the record it set the last time the RTO was held in 2019 (16: 54.10). Team member Casey Campbell also set a stage 4 record, beating the previous best time in this section west of Verdi by 20 seconds.

The Eclipse team of 12 women won the Open Women’s Division, finishing in 20: 46.03.

And the men’s team SRTree Ultra (six runners) set a record in this division with 19: 44.52.

The 178-mile Reno Tahoe Odyssey relay race returned on June 3-4, having not been held since 2019.

The captain of the Prominence Health team is Dominique Enriquez, the only member of the team who lives in Renault. He said about half of this team is different from the team leading the RTO in 2019, but is still just as serious about the venture. In addition to Henriquez and Campbell, team members include Raymond Fong, JJ Santana, Reid Breuer, Colin Corrigan, Rob McLaughlan, Eric Kleib, Alan Careno, Bo Armstrong and Derek Wehant.

Campbell said his goal is to try to set a record in stage 4.

“I love mountain running. It’s a challenge I just can’t resist, to really see what my body is capable of, to do the things that others are afraid of. There is something instinctive, so I could not back down, “he said. “I wouldn’t have gotten this chance or I could have won it without the great team and the noise from my friends and teammates.”

The Prominence Health Plan team is released after winning the Reno Tahoe Odyssey race in record time at Idlewild Park in Reno on June 4, 2022.

Henriques, 35, said the conditions were almost perfect – it was not too hot during the day, the night did not get too cold around Lake Tahoe and the wind only picked up later on Saturday.

The team starts at 4pm on Friday in Wingfield.

“If that was the case every year, I would agree with that,” Enriquez said of the conditions.
