Post-Race Notes from the Race Director

Great job to all the racers!!!!! I hope you all had the adventure you were looking for. Thanks to the Bushwhack Crew for allowing
the Gleneagles Challenge to go to the next level. Your races rock, like no others, and I am glad I was able to be a part of it. Special thanks to all our amazing volunteers - Debbie (Medic), Chris (Photographer), Marcey (Coursework), Rob (Utility Man). We also truly appreciate all the racer support in retrieving the Control Points after the event. That type of help really makes the post race tear down much easier.

We would love to see your pics from the race and hear about your adventure through your race reports, particularly your route choices in this rogaine style event. When posted, please send them our way, so we can post a link for all to read.

Gleneagles Challenge Results Are Posted!

Click here to see the results in a Google Spreadsheet.

Congrats to everyone who came out to race - you are all winners!

There were no "no shows" on race day, and no DNF's.
There were no serious injuries, just a few minor scrapes and scratches.
No team was "lost" past the end of the race. I can't vouch for anything that happened during the race.
We hauled a decent pile of "unique trash" out of the park, as well as a stack of the largest pizza boxes I've ever seen.

The 50/50 prizes for the top team in each division will be processed later this week. You'll get an email with your 50% discount serial number and your 50% entry fee refund will be processed through Google Checkout (or by check if that's how you paid).

Thanks again for racing! Hope to see you at the Falls Lake Challenge!

First Set of Pictures Posted



What a great day of racing! The rain held off until the last part of the awards ceremony. No racer got seriously injured (scrapes and scratches notwithstanding). All but one team made it back to the finish by the cutoff time. That one team was only 1 minute late!

Twelve teams cleared the whole course, with Team E2Zissou placing first overall with a time of 4:04! Racers pitched in after the race to help retrieve the control flags and had all but 2 of 27 picked up by 5:45 pm - thanks again to everyone who helped!

Detailed results and pictures will be posted this week. Check back soon for more info!
