Fall 2013 Results Summary
Friday November 8, 2013
After confirming with Jim, our race historian, we realized that 24 runners came out to enjoy a race first, well actually three race firsts.
Alison Burton has long had a tradition of combining the running of the 5K race with carrying a camera to stop and capture shots of the runners along the course. In the spring 2013 race, she surprised everyone by winning the 5k within 2 seconds of her predidcted time. As if that wasn't hard enough, today with camera in hand again, Alison became a back to back 5k winner running within 28.83 seconds of her predicted time.
Deciding one trophy in the house wasn't enough, hubby Dan Burton became our most decorated winner with his 5th 10k win. He was 3.58 seconds off his prediction.
Carrie Theunissen won the Beat the Handicapper contest, while the dreaded Shoe of Shame award goes to Christa Hallman.
We had a great turn out for this race and look forward toward even more runners next year as we approach our 50th race next fall.
