Preliminary results are posted below. I invite folks to send stories and photos (if you think you have one that might be suitable for publication in UltraRunning, please send a high quality file). I will be working on race report, blog post, and completing results this week.
Thank you to all runners, volunteers, community of Fries, VA State Parks staff, and to The Great Mystery for the awesome weather and beautiful river. Much more to follow.
