This is a fun race. Each competitors start time is staggered according to an estimate of his/her race time. This results in just about everybody finishing the race at the same time. It also means that anyone, regardless of whether you are a sprinter or a casual walker, can win the race. Officially, the winner is the person whose run time is closest to his/her estimate without exceeding it. For example, 10 seconds faster is better than 1 second slower (I know, its a strange race). Runners are not allowed to wear watches during the race.
Twenty three runners participated this year. Conditions were ideal, with a cloudy, overcast day and a temperature of 60 Degrees F. The race was won by Club vetran Len Efron who predicted his running time exactly... Chuck Lahmeyer was a close second place, just seven seconds behind Len. The handicap worked as advertised - the fastest and slowest runners finished within three seconds of each other.
Congratuations to Brian Rush for turning in the fastest total time of the day and welcome to Club newcomers Gerry Ortiz, Malcolm Wright, Abi Biswas and Brian Rush. The race was directed by Mark Ryne with lots of help from Sam Dolinar.
