Billy Goat XC on a Sunny Day in the Park

Monday, October 22, 2012

The Billy Goat XC 5K ended up with 165 finishers, who enjoyed the crisp fall day and the  race on the trails in Baird Park. The kids fun run had 51 finishers.

Results and photos from the race are published to Race Results.

Many thanks to all the volunteers who made this such a great race, especially race directors Wayne McDaniel and Conni Grace. Tom Storey made his debut as race scorer and got all the results out in record speed. MHRRC is glad to have another scorer on board for all our races. Fred Policastri spent Saturday blowing leaves off the trails of the course, so he gets special kudos for doing that. Many thanks, too, to Paul Fitzpatrick at race day regstration and timing, Pete Sanfilippo for managing the finish line, and to all the other volunteers who showed up to make this race so much fun (sorry not to name you here).

Special congratulations to all the runners. Trail running is certainly more challenging than being on the roads and this course has many hills and trail obstacles, which makes it all the more fun.
