 I would love to thank you all for coming out and making our day the success it was.  The weather was wonderful after the week we had, a touch on the chilly side but definitely warmed up by the time the race started.You should all be proud of yourselves, you did an awesome job and need to be commended for your efforts today and you contributions to the community.

I would like to apologize as there was a software glitch that failed to sort the runners by age group and gender, thereby causing me to try to separate them by hand.  There were some errors but I assure you that those that deserve medals will be given medals. 

Final results are listed below.

Any feedback, good or bad is appreciated because afterall all we would love to grow this event every year and see you all again.  I promise we will take your feedback and can trust an even bigger better event next year. 

With that said, please consider coming back to visit us next week at our Irish Celebration and Parade.  Also be on the lookout for the Bust A Move 5k to be happening in May.

Thank you all again, look forward to seeing you next year!

Donnette Stanley
