Report

Jim Blandford winning the 2019 Bull Run Run.

The 27th Bull Run Run will be remembered as the year with very slow times and a sub-60% finishing rate. Heavy rains the night before race day made for muddy conditions that challenged every step of the run.

James Blandford was the overall winner in 7:57:16 while Sheila Vibert won the women’s field in 8:59:52, sixth overall.

A full report will be coming shortly.
