my 5th escarpment trail run is in the books! at 5:45, it was also my slowest - but as long as i finished in less than 6 hours i was more than pleased to get to north lake :D
i'll write up a race report with more details. but one thing worth noting (aside from the first year utilizing wave starts) was the large number of non-starters. with the heavy rain - and occasional rumbles of thunder - which lasted for most of the first hour, a good number of bibs weren't still sitting out - unclaimed - as the race went off. but, the rain did stop - and the skies did clear - so off we went to climb the wall of manitou :D
here is my race report.
here are the race result via the albany running exchange.
