Not yet (as of Thursday night). They should be posted here with Grand Tree points, within a day or so of appearing on the Toby race website, http://mttobytrailrun.com/. Sounds like you made it through your first trail race, congratulations! Just in time to start thinking of taking up snowshoeing to get ready for the spring! :D

Thanks rob! I did! barely. You can see my write up here...

A little about me....(40 years old, 2 back surgeries) I just started running in July. lost 40lbs(250 to 210). Mostly 3-5 mile runs, (2) - 6.1 milers, and (1) 13.5 miler to prove to myself I could do a half marathon, at my own pace, at Forest Park. Only raced on pavement. Have done 4 5ks, and 1 Rugged Maniac Adventure race(www.ruggedmaniac.com)(southwick), 3.1 miles.

So this Mount Toby race, was WAY past my skill level. It was WAY harder than I thought. But sometimes you just got to do stuff to prove you can. :)

I finished last. :) BUT, I thought I was about an hour behind the last runners I saw pass me on the way down as I was going up. Turns out it was only about 20 minutes. I must of made up time :) because results are posted! :)

hmmm snow shoes....interesting! Im gonna have to look up some prices.
