2022 Competitor Results
We are looking forward to sharpening our race registration and timing systems next year based on suggestions we received. Our main goal in this inaugural year was to provide a fun race for the community. Thanks to all of our amazing participants, spectators, and volunteers it was a success.
- Volunteers logged each competitor's finish time by observing their bib number at the finish line. Volunteers tried their best to accurately record times even when the bib numbers were covered in mud, hidden, missing, or when racers finished in a big crowd.
- The different heat start times were taken into account in calculating the overall times.
- Team times are combined. Some team members crossed the finish line at the same time, and some did not. Documenting the team times was a challenge, but we are certain that we identified the fastest combined team no matter how you look at it. Way to go, Montrose High School ladies!
