Patrick Smyth and Kimber Mattox defended their titles at the 2015 Paul Mitchell XTERRA Trail Running World Championship on a picture-perfect Hawaiian morning along the northeastern shore of Oahu on Sunday. More than 1,500 runners from 20 countries and 40 states participated in the event at historic Kualoa Ranch, a lush, mountainous venue that has served as the movie set for scenes from “Jurassic Park,” “Godzilla,” “Pearl Harbor,” “50 First Dates” and several other Hollywood films. Smyth, a Nike Trail Elite team member from Santa Fe, N.M., was the overall winner, completing the 21K championship course in 1 hour, 20 minutes, 16 seconds. Mattox, a former University of Oregon All-American from Bend, Ore., was the first female and eighth overall in 1:36:44. In addition to the 21K race, 5K and 10K races were also held during the event.
