Firecracker Fourth

Great going in the midst of the first heat wave of 2013. 3,241 of the 3,500 who started were timed in at the finish. (More could have come in but the counted had ended.)

Alexis Broz, the teenage chalk artist) recovering from a serious vacation accident in Bali and ran the race on crutches. Her time of 1:07: was better than 43 other competitors. Her father Keneth was there all the way to offer encouragement.

Megan Morgan burned up the course in 20:57 placing her twelve overall and almost three minutes (2:58) ahead of the next woman.

Patrick Geohegan repeated his victory in 2012 with a time of 19:57 - 13 seconds slower than his 2012 time - the heat has its effect.
