Results, Iroquois Park, 18 January 2014
was beautiful today with light snow accumulation on the ground. Conditions were
very cold and sunny at the mass start. Temperatures warmed slightly and cloud
cover increased throughout the meet.
We had about 50 entries, including Apollo, Hopkins Central, and North Bullitt high schools. Five runners attempted the long 8.3 km course, where endurance and consistency were key. On the middle course, the top three runners stayed within sight of each other until the race was decided at controls 10 and 11, both deep in the woods on steep terrain. Everyone made it back in by 1:00 and I was glad not to be waiting out in the cold at registration much longer!
Thanks to Ken, Paul, and Jim for control setting and pickup. Thanks to Louie for handling membership registration and thanks to Ken for all his meet administration help.
