RFTO 2011 - results!!!
What a great day! The sun was shining... we had no rain for the event (and no rain until late afternoon), and we had fun raising money for a great cause to support orphans abroad and at home.
This year we had one of our benefitting orphanages, Childrens Home of Hope in Ghana, and their founder, Elvis, start the race and hand out awards. As Elvis said, every step taken was another step toward feeding an orphan. That is why this race exists, to do something good with our passion for running.
Our first year with the 10K did have some hiccups in terms of course support, and I apologize for that and resolve that it will be much more organized and better supported next year. I think overall it was a success and a good addition to the race. We will continue with the 10K next year, as well as the 5K and 1 mile kids run.
Results are now available. Please see attached link below. If you had to leave after the race and, if you won your age group, and were not able to claim your trophy, let me know and we will sync up.
