It was a great day for a Trail Challenge in Highland Park.
There were 25 starts, a good turn out for a mid summer event.
Tyler set an interesting course and had figured out a way to
have the time paused so you could safely cross the road.
Tyler also set up the Grid-O course for everyone to try. It
was fun to watch and cheer on your fellow competitors and see
if you could beat their time. There were different level of
difficulty so anyone could try it. The Borden family set up
and helped get everyone started on the Grid-O. Thank you.
Among our competitors we had a person who grew up here and
is currently living in China stop by and compete in the 8k.
He is visiting his family here in Rochester.
We also had 2 foreign exchange students out on the 4k course.
One is from Denmark and the other is from Germany. Hope to see
them again. There was also a gentleman from Texas.
A good time was had by all.
There was lots of planes in the air since the Air Show was
this weekend. We got to see a few planes that we would not
normally see and 5 in formation, you would never see that here!
Remember that if you volunteer you do not have to pay an entry
fee. So think about volunteering for the next couple of meets,
contact Sandra Lomker.
For the 8k because the second road crossing checkpoint is
used before in the course as 8 the software didn't calculate
times properly. I have corrected the times and you can
check for errors by using the overall total time from the
spilts links and removing upto 2:00 min from split 9 and
16 to find your proper race time. This shuffled the ranking
around a bit and despite Tim missing the last control and
having to go back he comes away with the win.
The following people volunteered to make a successful meet. Thank
you for your help, it makes the meet go along smoothly.
