We Walk! 2010 Results

 

2010 was the second year of the We Walk! Marathon, Half Marathon and 50km.

 

Many thanks to everyone that participated. Many of the volunteers commented on how friendly everyone was. Thanks for being nice to them. It makes it easier to recruit volunteers for next year.

 

The weather day was good, starting out with a typical May temperature of 45F but under sunny skies, warming to 70 degrees by noon. There was only a gentle breeze. Spring was in early this year, so almost all of the trees were in full leaf. The corn is all planted and just peeking up in some places. The cows were out, watching everyone go by.

 

We had 85 entrants, and 80 starters. This is more than 3 times as many people participating as last year. For the second year in a row, everyone that started, finished.

 

Pictures

If you have pictures from the event that you would like to share, please send us an e-mail at info@walkonmn.org. Either attach the picture, or put them on the web and send a link. I am especially interested in pictures you took at the finish line, or of the happenings along the course.

 

Will Loew-Blosser (marathon finisher) had Leslie taking pictures again this year. She was at both starts and out on the course. She tried to get everyone. Her pictures are on the web: http://web.me.com/wloewblosser/We_Walk_Marathon_2010/Albums/Albums.html

 

Dorrie Hulsey (50km finisher) sends along these pictures. Includes pictures along the trail, including the volunteers at work: http://picasaweb.google.com/ldhulsey/WeWalkMarathonStJosephMN?feat=directlink#

 

Bruce's pictures - dinner, starts, and finish line - are on the web: http://picasaweb.google.com/walkonmn.org/2010WeWalkMarathon# These pictures have everyone at the finish. The clock is in most of them. Half marathoners - remember to subtract 1:33:44 from the clock.

 

Finish Line pictures from Leslie Nordgren were integrated into Bruce's pictures on the web. Thanks.

 

Comments

We are interested in your comments about the event. Just like last year, we will be posting all comments on  the web, unless you tell us not to. We want to learn a little bit each year, and keep making the event better. Send your comments to info@walkonmn.org. Thank you in advance. Here are the comments we have gotten so far.

 

Certificates

It will take a couple of weeks for the certificates to appear. We are trying something new this year, and we have to get the technology to work. Your name will be a link to the certificate when the certificates are ready. You will also get an e-mail from info@walkonmn.org when the certificates are ready.

Judging

We had USATF certified racewalking judges on the course. If 3 walking judges agreed that someone was not racewalking, we moved them into the walk division. If any walking judge saw someone running (defined as having both shoes off the ground at the same time), we moved them into the walk/run division. If someone told us at the finish line (we did not ask) that they ran, even a little, we put them in the walk/run division.
