2009 Spring Lake Five - Race Results

It seems as if the race held up and the 2009 Spring Lake Five race is in the books. Unfortunately I had to miss the race this year... the race was closed by the time I tried to enter (back in February).

Anyway, here is the link for the 2009 Spring Lake Five race results. As of half past noon on Saturday, the fields are empty, but at least the page is up already, so you can check back later.

For more information on the race, check the Spring Lake Five home page.

Wish I was there... right now I'd be at Kelly's having a post-race sligo and a Long Island iced tea with my friends.
