Mud Run results (sort of)

I've moaned and groaned about poor course marshaling at Mud Run, which led to a short course. We received a very apologetic email from race organizers this week and although results will not be declared "official", they have been posted. The Nucking Futs placed 7th, 8th and 9th and clocked the fastest overall time for the "buddy" (co-ed) team category. We're definitely pleased, official or not.

Race organizers have offered us half price registration for next year as compensation, and we will definitely be taking them up on that. We'll be back to claim our title in 2010... officially!

Tomorrow is the Toronto City Chase and the Blister Sisters are looking forward to tearing up Toronto once again. It should be a fun, exhausting and wet day. Yep, it's calling for rain ALL DAY LONG. Watch for a report soon!

Congrats on the placement on the Mud Run. I enjoyed watching people running around my neighbourhood for the City Chase race. So do you wear running gear and is a backpack really necessary? If i'd do it, i'd dress for running :)

I know the feeling, I did the 10k solo and ended up doing at least 13-4k total. Came in behind a lot of people who never passed me..
