Fifteen runners waited out the rain and lightning and enjoyed a dust-free jaunt for a one mile or three mile run on Barranca Mesa and in Bayo Canyon.
On the short course, Beth Davenport and Billy Strother had the best predictions being off by 81 seconds (normalized to the three mile course). Savanna Strother was the first finisher at 8:11.
For the long course, on which runners ran around Barranca Mesa Elementary School and then down the horse trail into Bayo Canyon to the point and back Gonzales Road to Barranca School, Zachary Medin was the best predictor, being only 27 seconds off his prediction. Felix Candia was 77 seconds off and Jeremy Goette was 81 seconds off and the first finisher on the long course with a time of 22:21.
Next week’s pace race begins at 6:00 pm at the end of Acoma Lane in White Rock. From Highway 4 south of White Rock, take Monte Rey Drive South to Potrillo Drive to Acoma Lane.
