A quick summary of this past weekend's event.

Hello Everyone,

With the shuffling of bibs this weekend, I thought a quick summary might help add clarification to this weekend's results.

**We did not have any girls race this weekend. 

Times are relative to the conditions and course set. Every race is unique. The top finisher this weekend had a time of 24.97 seconds. These results will not count in any league standings, however they are very important for creating our first start list of the season. 

Our top 6 finishers will be racing during Hanover's first varsity race of the season on 1/3/17.  Congratulations to those who finished top 6!

NEW RACERS

Be patient and safe.

This race does not count  in any standings. This is a learning event.
