Park-O #4: Peters Hill 

Starts: Thursday, May 10, 2012 6:00 PM
Registration:  Pre-registration is optional, but requested (so we know how many maps to print) by Wednesday, May 9, 2012 11:59 PM
Start Type: Interval (runners start at 1 minute intervals)
Map: Peters Hill
Organizer: Vadim Afonkin

Join us for the 4th event of the 2012 Boston Park Series!

The results are in the usual place, in the standard form, but Vadim Afonkin planned a course in which we
at the finish would see people at #3, and, depending on route choice, many on the way from #12 to #13.
We were able to get splits for most at those points, so we show them here.
