Thank you to all who did both races in the first ever CTP Challenge Series! 

If you did not get an award (trophy for 1st or medal for 1st in Age Group), I will mail the award to you.

I had a lot of issues with figuring out the results at the end of the Mayville 5K & 10K races, so I apologize for not getting all of these to you in due time.

In the future, I may just keep it simpler and give medals to those who complete the races in the series. This would make it easier overall to administer. Thanks for your patience as I tried this out for the first time and best of luck to you in your future races in 2014!

We were a part of history at the Finley 5K, too:

Jon Williams, the overall winner, has raced in 45 out of 50 states and has won a race in all 45.

The Finley 5K was his first in North Dakota, and also his first win in ND too, making our state and our race #46 on the list!

Thank you Jon for coming to Finley, all the way from Florida, to participate in our Finley 5K race!

For the Youth Run, I apologize for not having full results. I had some stopwatch issues and also the bib tags were misplaced, leaving me to guess top 3 winners for the ribbons. I unfortunately did not write these winners down in the hurry-up process of handing out awards. I hope the kids had a chance to try the 40 yard dash timer as a bonus feature of the night to add to their experience. I will try to get this squared away better for next year.
