No results

Still no results for Mud Run and it looks like they may or may not be publishing official results.

Mud Run 2009 - 10K Results Notice

As most of the runners in the Mud Run 10K are aware, we had a routing issue at the beginning of your run which caused you to run a route that was not as we had planned. As a result, a large number of the Solo and Team runners ran more or less then 10K, while some runners ran the 10K route as it was planned. We sincerely apologize for this mistake.

We are currently reviewing the finishing times to determine if and how we can rank the 10K runners in the appropriate categories. We will post this information as soon as possible.

Thank you very much for your patience and understanding.


It's annoying, especially since we were really gunning for a top 3 finish, but sh*t happens. There's always next year - hopefully they'll have the "routing issue" figured out by then.

I understand where you are coming from...a few years ago i ran a Turkey Trot and the timing system didn't record the finishing times because the finish was flooded with rain ! Totally not cool but oh well!

that stinks! I hope when they figure it out, your team is still in the top 3!!

what a bummer. at least i'm not the only one it happened to ... my 10K turned out the same way but they posted "results".

My 10K Event Notice:

that does suck! Sorry to hear about that, but hopefully they'll get it figured, out and if not, at least a lesson learned (for them, not you) for next year!

Oh No! That is so frustrating! Like other people have said, though, hopefully they will just post the "results" even if they can't sort through them completely.

That's so annoying - probably a silly question, but did anyone have a garmin-esque device to time it?

Jess said...

That is frustrating.

Waiting sucks....and how frustrating too!

But was the T-shirt cute? LOL! (that's always the silver lining for me)

If they don't release official results, there will be no way to prove you didn't do top 3 so I think the title is yours ;)
