Bull Run Run 2009

This year's team competition was interesting. Unfortunately, most of the winners had to be determined at the last minute when things are hectic and people are tired. The result is that two teams tied for the Best Theme category. PA Rockers and Over 40 and Still Hot! tied for the title. The former got the actual awards on a coin flip.

The fastest team was the WUS Pink Mafia, a clear "Dream Team." Their title was assured at eight and a half hours into the race when Justine Morrison finished. If Justine is your last finisher, you have a strong team.

Virtual Team

We received a "virtual" team entry from Scott Mills. None of the members of the team was entered in the event, but all had long connection with it. Two were prior winners. One was a prior race director. One was Joe Clapper. The theory was that they would "mail in" their times. Tragically, even with mailed in times, they lost to the WUS team. How do we say this gently? This team is over the hill.

Charlie Miracle put together the oldest team. The team included Frank Probst who was the oldest person in the race. Race day was his 66th birthday. The title was assured as long as Charlie could drag his body across the finish line. Perhaps fearing that Vicki would kill him if he didn't, Charlie finished with almost a half hour to spare.

The slowest team was Buzz Dawgs II. This team proved that consistency wins the day. No member of the team ran slower than 12 hours, but no member ran faster than 10:30.

The "finish together" category was, strictly speaking, won by no one. Last year, race management defined "together" as meaning together. This year we loosened that a bit, but not much. No team finished together under any meaning of that term. The judges, however, decided that the Entrail Runners came closest to the finish together goal.

Medieval painters always put a flaw in their paintings because perfection was a sacrilege. Only God is prefect. Our way of avoiding perfection is the team competition. It's goofy and imperfect. Sort of like us!

Thanks to Helen Cacciapaglia and Quatro Hubbard for helping judge the team competition.
