First off, I'd like to say I was impressed with the organization
especially for a first time event in an area with no running club to help.
You did a wonderful job. Water stations everywhere,and completely
stocked with extras, traffic control was beyond belief. Even the people
finishing last got the same welcoming congratulations and greetings with
their finishers medals as the winners. I am impressed. Thank you for All
your work.

And getting the results posted in less than 12 hours...Wow! The last half
we did (the whole marathon was an option) it took them a month to post.

My only complaint was that the timing chips should have continued to be
downloaded until all the award winners were known. Ex: the 16-19 yo
group all 3 winners left without knowing they won awards. This is wrong.
It is not the award that is so impressive as getting it at that award
ceremony, in front of the runners who know how hard it was.

So my question is this.....Will the awards be mailed to the winners who
didn't get them at the finish line?

Thank you.
