Veterans’ Victory 5K Results

Screen Shot 2013-09-24 at 1.02.06 PMThanks to all who participated, volunteered, and supported the Veterans’ Victory 5K last weekend!  It was an amazing success.  If you would like to see your times, they are attached here or go to this website: http://results.active.com/events/veterans-victory-5k-run-walk-wheel.

Please be aware that there was some confusion about the starting procedure and all timing chips were activated at the first count-down (for bikers).  You should subtract at least 30 seconds from the posted time to get a more accurate idea of your time (depending on how far back you were and how long you waited to start). We apologize for this flaw.

Finally, if there were any people who wanted to order a T-shirt (with the artwork of one of our own 5th graders), please place an order to the office by Friday.  Cost is $5/shirt with check written to the WPA PTO.  Put your money in an envelope labeled 5K T-shirt and specify on the back the sizes that you want, your name and phone number or email address.
