Excellently run race - chip

Excellently run race - chip time matched my own stopwatch. With such a great public response, why not add a 10K option?...I wish there had been some HEALTHY freebie post-race refreshments: ie, yoghurt, fruit juice, etc...

Do you know if the course was

Do you know if the course was certified or what the exact distance was?

It is not a certified course.

It is not a certified course. The distance is a little short as well by about 50 meters

Kurt, your chip didn't read

Kurt, your chip didn't read at the start so we had to assign a gun time. I've gone back though and looked at our backup reads and we caught it which gave you an elapsed time on 26:30. That is the time from the actual starting tower and not the secondary. Where did you start your watch?

My race time was incorrect on

My race time was incorrect on the results page. My bib number was 785 and I ran the race in 26:10 but the results show 28:25. My 7th place showing in bracket 55-59 should have been 3rd. No big deal other than for posterity. Other than this glitch, my wife and I loved the race! See you next year.
