Someone pointed out today you can get to some undersiable websites if you search for the website on google.  I am not sure why and I will try to fix but if you type in www.mudgrandprix.net into your browser window it should take you to the website.

Results of Autumnal Equinox Race#154 on Sept 23rd, 6pm

We had very nice weather last night and and 22 runners.   Very fast and dry course.  The Swifts were out in full force and many stayed to watch them go down the chimmeny along with a hawk who grabbed one.  Large crowd to watch the birds.

If there are any corrections to the results please let me know.   I was a little late on hitting the finish times on a few runners.

Thankyou to Jen for bringing cookies.

Next race is Sunday Dec 20th at 9am.   The actual solstice is on Monday Dec 21st.

Results of Summer Solstice Run #149

 We had a perfect morning to run, clear skies and cool.   It was our first race with the Thurman Street Bridge detour which increases the course to about 7.00 miles.   Attendance was low for such a perfect morning to race.

Come out for the next race it is the 150th race in MGP series.  Monday Sept 22nd at 6pm

Here are the results for today.

 

Results of Vernal Equinox Race#148

We had a very nice evening to race, it was sunny and dry.  Perfect cool temperature for running.  We had to use the Upshur detour as the Thurman stairs were already closed.   The bridge was still open though for the return trip.   Thanks for those that ran and the good cookies that Jen brought.

I talked to a few runners and they thought it might be faster to take Upshur as you skip going up the short hill and going down the stairs.   That portion of the detour only adds .06 miles which makes distance 6.82
