The 25th Bull Run Run had great weather, awesome performances, and throw backs to the past. Frank Probst completed the 25th just as he completed the first. He has done them all—someting no one else has done. The overall winners—Bradley Revenis for the men and Meg Landymore for the women—each won by substantial margins. Team The Survivors had all of its members finish. That’s an accomplishment given that if the insurance companies could still not cover you for preexisting illnesses, they would not get insurance.
Race founder, Chris Scott, reinvigorated the history and tradition of the event. Civil War reenactors were out on the course. The “Chris gooffyness” that started it all, reappeared.
As usual, a cast of thousands of volunteers added to the great experience of the runners.
Two runners ran fastest times by their age group. Maureen Rohrs finished in 11:12:41. That was a half hour faster than the previous female super senior record. Gary Knipling bettered his own fastest time by anyone, male or female, 70 or above at 11:39:00. The course was different this year. We used the high water course. It is not precisely the same distance. From the results on this day, it didn’t seem that the course was short. In any event, no one has come close to a better performance in their respective age groups than Maureen or Gary.
We had several photographers this year. There should be a photo of most runners at least somewhere. You should check with the photographer before you use a photo in any way. Most are okay to let you use a photo, including printing it, for private, non-commercial purposes. Any public display of these photos should include proper attribution to the photographer.
