H+P at the 2014 Oktoberfest Run

It's hard to believe, but this is the THIRD year in a row that the team has entered a solid contingent in the WRS Oktoberfest Run.  This year was, without a doubt, our most successful.  Here is a complete summary of our results (Thanks to Julie Schmidt for all the great photography).


5K Teams and #SeanVsGill

Firstly, in the 5K, we had the #SeanVsGill challenge.  You can check out the complete recap here, and the official team results here.

#TeamGill ended up walking away with a narrow victory over #TeamSean with an average time of 17:38 vs 17:44.  The teams ended up coming in  1st and 2nd OA out of all 5K teams.

On a side note, if our top 5 runners had all been placed on 1 team, our average finishing time would have been an outstanding 16:33!!

10K Teams

Led by a massive break through performance by Nick Burt (and PB's across the board for many of our runners), the team finishes with an average time of 41:32 among the top 5 runners.  Click here for the full results.


Battle of Waterloo
