Gorham's photographs for an MSU Mountains and Minds magazine story on Bozeman's annual Ed Anacker Ridge Run won a grand gold for photography and illustration in the Council for the Advancement of Support of Education District VIII competition. Gorham's series of photographs about the 2009 run was the best photo or illustration entry from colleges and universities in the CASE district that includes all the Pacific Northwest and Western Canada.
Gorham's photos accompanied a story written by MSU News Service writer Evelyn Boswell about Ed Anacker, a retired MSU chemistry professor whose long-time feats of extraordinary physical endurance inspired the Ridge Run. Now a Bozeman institution, the 20-mile race across the crest of the Bridger Mountains is considered one of the most grueling races in the country.
