Reach The Beach - Early (unofficial) Results

Updated with unofficial results:
These were the results as of 3pm Saturday. I think we probably ended up in 8th overall since team Hey Bud! initially was whacked with a 2hr penalty (as shown below). After an appeal the penalty was dropped, and they should have moved up to 6th overall. Official results have not been posted as of Sunday morning.
NOTE: pace is also off on these unofficial results. They are based on a 200 mile course. The official RTB distance was 207.4 miles.

unofficial results as of 3pm Saturday

The Mine Falls Milers finished 7th overall out of 417 teams. We were outmatched by a bunch of Wake Forest Alumni runners (Team Hey Bud!) in the masters division but did manage to squeak out 2nd place with a come from behind effort in the last 6 legs. Congrats to Team Hey Bud!, nice job.

This was probably our best team performance as well. Our finishing time of 22 hr 29 min and 11 seconds (for the 207.4 mile course) converts to a team average pace of 6:30 min/mile. Pretty impressive for a team who's average age is north of 40. More later once I get some rest.

Oh, and Team Hello Kitty won with a time of 20:22:58 (5:54 avg). Nice job guys.
