Here are the final results for the event (still in draft form as results continue to come in and get "verified"). Steve Butler repeated as champion by successfully defending his title and cutting a few minutes off last year's winning time. Jen Burton was first female and second overall. Five total finishers and a lot of DNFs. I plan on being a finisher next year. Maybe even a champion! Can we have a new category of "past/current race director" so I can easily win?

Hope to see everyone back on the last Saturday in January 2017 for Riddle Run 18. Special thanks to Jeff for starting this whole thing and lending his name to the event. Like it or not, it's simply the "Riddle Run." We wouldn't have it any other way. I appreciate all of the runners that brought extra food and drink to share. And, of course, kudos to Tom the "creator and manager of fire." Tom and I are the only 17-time participants of the Riddle event. I know we'll both be back in 2017. I imagine one day, way in the future, it'll simply be me and Tom crawling around this course. And I'll win.
For a historical perspective, here are all of the Riddle Run winners from 2000-2016. Based on feedback from faraway buffalo runners, there is a need for satellite versions of the Riddle Run. Race management is considering this option for 2017.
