NOVA Timing, Ugly Mudder results
Annual Awards Banquet Reminder
Saturday, 6:00 - 9:00 P.M. at White Clay Country Club. See Events page for directions.
From Ed Hartwell of Nova Timing:
A big THANK YOU from NOVA Timing Systems for inviting us to be part of your first team challenge event. You all are what keeps the running community strong and thriving in Delaware year after year. We were happy to donate our timing services to give back and show you our gratitude for all the times you participated in our events. We hope to take part in many more club challenges in the future.
I want to quickly explain what happened with us missing the times of some finishers. February is the only month of the year we don’t do any races so we send our equipment out for maintenance. All of our primary timing equipment (the big silver boxes you see at our finish lines) were getting serviced so we only had a “split” timing box to use. It is not designed to be the primary timing device but it was all that we had. Unfortunately, it did not work properly for a short span of time, and, as you know, we missed a few finishers. And, with no bibs to tear, we had no back up in place. After alerting the club captains, most of the missed finishers were found and they gave us their information. We were able to fill in most of the missing data and get the results calculated. We captured 66 of the 72 finishers that day. We know there were 72 finishers because we counted the chips that were returned (only one chip was lost). A few people sent their finish times in by email and were added to bring the total to 69.
Here is the link to view the results:
Please forward us the information of the finishers who are missing if they can be identified.
As most of you know, we time all the Races2Run events and many others around the area. Please come over to the timing tent and say ‘Hi’ if you are at our events. And, if you know of any events that are in need of timing, please let me know. And….yes….we promise to have our primary equipment at all future events! : )
Please visit our website: www.novatimingsystems.com to see the other events we will be timing. Will I see any of you up at the Boston Marathon in April? If so, I will be there timing the 40K split. Make sure you wave to me!
Thanks everyone. Have a great 2012! We will see you out at the races!
President, NOVA Timing Systems
Ugly Mudder results - from Tom Steenkamer
The MidAtlantic USATF off-road season kicked off last Sunday in Reading, PA with the famed Ugly Mudder 7.25 mile race. PCVRC was well represented with 12 participants in a race that has a history of providing a challenging course and conditions. For those who recall the ice storm of 2008 or the 2.5 ft. of snow in 2010 this year was a treat with temperatures approaching 40 degrees at race time. The race was been added to the La Sportiva Mountain Cup series this year and with the warm weather race participation jumped to close to 900.
This year the course was modified to eliminate some sections of Mt. Penn where the trails have been closed, but race director Ron Horn still managed to find plenty of single track, hills, rocks and roots for the runners to navigate. Heck some sections were even runnable. When the mud settled PCVRC came home with a bit of hardware, and more importantly no injuries.
USATF individual standings:
Keith Crispin – 1st AG
Fred Shuffleberger – 1st AG
Lisa Jalot – 3rd AG
Beth Howlett – 2nd AG
Carol Giampietro – 3rd AG
PCVRC stands in 3rd place after the first race of the USATF off road season with 281.75 points. We’re looking forward to the next race at Tyler Arboretum on March 31st. The Tyler race has reached its entry limit of 400 and is now closed. Please contact Rich or me this week if you got shut out.
