    Unknown runner in 44th place, please notify WMAC Webmaster if you want your name added to results and GT tally.

  • GT Update Tally as of Pisgah and Trails to a Cure
         Alexandra Ross continues to lead women's Stonehead by a large margin with 341 points in just 4 races, and leads overall best of 4 races with an 85% average. However, she has not run any races since the People's Forest GT update, and so the season results will depend on which of the women runners run at least six races. Carolyn Wisnowski is in second with 286 points in 4 races, and Katya Divari third with 265 points in 5 races.
         Ted Cowles increases his lead in men's Stonehead with 826 points in 12 races, over Andy Illidge with 538 in 7 and Thom Parker with 454 in 7. Andy leads overall best of 6 races with 78% to Ted's 73% and Thom's 67%.

    For runners with two or more races:
