Urban Dare NY

The biggest smile on this picture belongs to new Urban Dare NY Champion Les Santos standing in the middle with his partner Gregg Plonisch. Les finished second last year, and with Gregg on his team this year they destroyed the course. I'm a pretty good judge of what time the winners will finish a race, and they came in about 18 minutes ahead of what I expected. It was a very impressive performance.

Paul Reilly & Heidi Henneman finished 19 minutes later, and another nineteen minutes later third, fourth, and fifth place were decided by a matter of seconds. Ken Derry & Paul Oldakowski 2:51:02 beat Family Van 2:51:06, which beat TJ Maxx 2:51:11.

Thanks to everyone who participated in what was a very fun race.
