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. This means that anyone, irregardless of whether you are a sprinter or a casual walker, can win the race. It's certainly more fun then running to mail your taxes...
Everyone ran faster than predicted this year. The race is run entirely on the paved road above the East Gate and was directed by Mark Ryne.
