Thanks go to everyone who participated in the events.  We had terrific weather and lots of smiling faces coming across the finish line.

Results can be found at Competitve Timing.

If you lost or left clothing on the course, our sweep crew probably picked it up and you can retrieve it from Time Out Sports, 1595 Grand Avenue, Billings, MT 59102.  A few drop bags were also taken there.

Pictures by Montana Stars should be online at their site by mid-week.

 Also, be sure to provide us some feedback on our Comments page.
