Thanks to everyone who volunteered at the Bridge Run expo and at the CRC tent in Marion Square!  We hope that everyone enjoyed the race as well as the breakfast. 

 The winner of the Bridge Run prediction contest is Barbara Carter!  She had four correct predictions.  She also wins "closest to the chip" for guessing the closest time.  Barbara predicted that Channing Pons would run a 35:30 and his chip time was a 35:32
