June 8th, 2019 – Relay
Results are loaded into Ultrasignup. It shows overall placing and the distance completed by the team. I wasn’t able to split it into the three categories of Men, Women and Mixed. It’s a little confusing but I think that’s the best I can get it.
Congratulations to the winners!
Men: Will Jones and Nathan Richards with 19 laps (41.4 miles) completed
Mixed: Leah Wessler and Brandon Vaughan with 19 laps (41.4 miles) completed
Women: Andi Skorheim and Claire Gilfillan with 12 laps (26.2 miles) completed
Overall win went to Will and Nathan. (After 19 laps, both Will and Nathan were not eliminated, while Leah was eliminated and Brandon opted not to run another lap.)
Fastest lap of the day:
Men: Nathan Richards (14:57)
Women: Leah Wessler (17:20)
Both of these times beat the current Strava course record!
Thank you to our volunteers: Adam and Josie Braddock for hosting, clearing the course and making the hot food and cookie medals; Kristin Elwell for handcrafting the medals for the winners; Dan Clements for taking the photos; Gary Halcomb for engraving the cups and MiiR for donating them; Nathan Yoder for helping with the timing (and designing our logo!); and Robert Torres-Miller for helping with the aid station and picking up the pizza. It’s you guys that make our club great!
Here is a picture of the final scoreboard with all the details.
