The race director can now relax--like the photo at left during the race (photo by Dave Ghent). Results are now posted on the Second Wind Running Club web site. Please let me know if you think there are errors. I will send the results to our club newsletter and UltraRunning magazine, so I want them to be final & accurate soon. Thanks. We had 128 registered for the race, 109 starters, and 95 finishers (14 DNF). Next year I'd like to have over 100 finishers! Either I increase the race limit (unlikely) or I have fewer DNS and DNFs. Time to start training for next year...but don't get injured.
Soon I'll send an e-mail with a web survey to all the racers that ran at least one loop (even the DNFers). I want your feedback about the race. I'll be gathering insights from the volunteers and the running club too. Once all the data is in, I'll make some decisions about next year and let you know what changes are planned. Hope to see all of you back at Clinton Lake in 2009.
Special thanks to Second Wind Running Club, Illinois Department of Natural Resources, and all the volunteers & sponsors. The race couldn't happen without you.
