Join us for the 3rd event of the 2012 Boston Park Series!

Giovanni set up the course with a 2 loop sections that could be run in either order (A or B). the idea was that
people could pair up to compete with each other; one running the A course, the other the B. In the end, the
courses were equal. Several pairs did do that. Aims Coney and Dave Yee finished 3 sec apart. SGB ran against
Brendan Shields, posting 13:52, the best time up till then, but Giacomo took 20 sec off that. Then, when Ian
Finlayson showed up, SGB ran against him, posting 13:27, 25 sec better than his official time.
