Thank you cyclists, runners, and volunteers

Thank you Mark, Kathy, and an unidentified cyclist who helped to keep time for the Fig Leif 10K off-road bicycle and 5K run.  The cyclists started one minute before the runners.  The runners ran to mile post 2 before returning to the starting line so the course was more like 5.5 km over a winding, uphill, rocky, hard packed, dirt road.  Everyone, men, women, cyclists and runners, returned safely within 28 (running) and 32 (cycling) to 50 minutes of starting.   The last person to cross the finish line had a flat tire at the halfway turnaround point which slowed him down considerably.  But he still finished faster than most people can walk 5K on level ground. Thanks again everyone, Henry
