Correction to 16 mile results!

Please note:  #591, Susie Rand-weimer, finished the 16.7 mile (27Km) race at Roundtop Trail Run in 2:51:12.  Somehow her time got switched with a runner who was 4:20:50.  Our apologies to Susie.

More importantly, please let us know of any other time or place discrepancies.  After all, things can happen when you plan for 70 runners and get 112!

NEXT year we will have more port-a-sans at the start/ finish, and will blockade the turnaround with a tank so that nobody cruises by the “All Races turn around here!” sign.  And we will make many more t-shirts!

Hope to see many of you at the El Paso Marathon next week, AND the amazing Sierra Vista Trail Runs in Las Cruces March 5, and the Jackrabbit Classic in the State Park April 11 (I have done a preliminary measurement and the courses should be 8.1 miles and 4.2 miles– BUT with lots of climbing and some very rough footing).
