Course Records

Last year was the first running of the Clinton Lake race so both the female and male winning times were course records. And they were each rewarded with $56.11 in cash ($50 plus breakfast money for the Farmer City cafe)! This year we will again offer a cash prize for new course records. No cash for winning, only for new course records. The standing records are:

Male: 4:23:19 (2007, Joel Lammers)
Female: 4:34:26 (2007, Christine Crawford)

The course conditions were tough last year--lots of mud, water, and wind. If we get nicer weather, we could have two new course records. And with a record field (125 runners) we should have more "elites" trying for fast times. I think it's possible to break 4:00.

I'm running too...slowly for all 3 loops. I do think there are some very fast men and women this year. It'll be fun watching them loop me!

I agree with Ian...I am going for the record of under 4 hours - for the first loop. My goal...start the third loop before being looped - and I plan to do the early start.
