Results for 2012

I am real late publishing this but here is the year end summary of 2012 results.   We had a total of 59 racers over the 4 races.   A little down from last year we had 69 in 2011. 

High attendance was 30 at both Solstice runs and low was 24 at both Equinox runs.   Those who made it to all races names are highlighted in blue.

Results from the Winter Solstice race Dec 22nd.

We had a great turnout today with 28 runners.   We also lucked out and had a partly sunny dry patch of weather.  What a great way to end the year.  On top of that we had some very fast times.   Kelsey Stilson ran very fast today, she ran the 2nd fastest time ever on this course since 1978.   She PR'd by nearly 4 minutes.   We also had the fastest overall time run since 1999.   Aki ran 41:23 hopefully he can come again and break into the top 10.  Aki former Wilsonville High School runner now on winter break from college.

Results Autumn Equinox (updated 12/12) Race Saturday Sept 22 at 5:30pm

We had a perfect night for racing last night, it was about 72 at the start.   The light rain helped keep the dust down on the trail some.   As always there was a large crowd to watch the Swifts and they helped cheer us on when we finished.   The course was very fast last night so Mack and I went for PR's and had a very good race. 

Results Summer Solstice 6-20-12 at 6:09pm

We had a good turnout and a nice warm evening, 80 deg, with perfect trail conditions.     We had 26 runners last night with 8 of them being 1st time runners.   I already have 3 times sent in.  My thanks to the Wetzel's for helping to time and to Jen for bringing cookies.  Any corrections please let me know?   A cell phone was left last night at the race.  I left it with Josh Humbert as he lives in Portland.

Results MGP Vernal Equinox Race March 19, 2012 6pm.

We had a small but hardy group of runners turn out for the muddy race.   It was cold 44 but the rain held off for the most part.  The course was a lot of fun if you like the challenge of running in the mud.   It wasn't too bad except for the Dogwood trail where you really had to slow down.  

Next Race Saturday Dec 22nd at 9am #143

The last race of the year is coming up soon.   Come on out and enjoy the mud.   For new runners, just show up and sign in before the race, no preregistration is needed.   The last race was lightly attened so invite your friends to come race.   I invited Connor's high school x-country team, hopefully a few make it out.

I haven't run the course in a few weeks but it looks like someone blew the leaves off on the Dogwood trail.  Last time I ran it the leaves on top of the mud made it very slippery.

Measured course today!

I bought a wheel at Home Depot last weekend and went and measured the MGP course today.   It had been measured once before, about 10 years ago but I wanted to verify the distances.   My distances were close just a tad bit longer.   I will calll these the official distances now.   6.76 overall length.   Here are the measurements.

 

Results for Entire 2011

 I finally compiled all the race results for the entire 2011.   We had a total of 67 racers for the year almost identical to the 70 we had in 2010.

 

Results for Winter Solstice Dec 17, 11 at 9am Race #139

We had a great day today, perfect weather for the winter race, sunny and cool.   Trail was fast for this time of the year as we have had so little rain in December this year.   We had a great turnout for the race too.   22 runners on race day.  

Suggested donation amount per race

The MGP is very inexpensive to run but modest donations are appreciated.   However in the last few races a few runners have been too generous in their donations.   A quite a few people have asked me how much they should donate?   Well I finally figured out expenses.   It works out about $1.50 per race per runner, or yearly donation of $6 if you do all the races.   Please do not feel obligated to donate, this is just a guideline and to give visibility to the group what expenses are.
