Results were pretty slow to be posted online, and my inquiries about when they would be available didn't get a response. Once they were up several days later, I saw that Iinitially I was listed as being 3rd in my age division, but at some point, I moved down to 4th. :(
While it was a decent event, I'd like to see the race directors improve upon some of the details.
