It was cold, windy and hilly, but we all seemed to enjoy this December 22nd BUS year end event. Results are now available, and we'll be posting pictures soon.

Update #2 (12/18/12): Race Director (Richie) adds the following to FURTHER clarify MORE of the questions he's gotten from you all. PLEASE try to get your registration forms to him by December 20th... to make sure you get the race cap with the classic BUS logo:

"There will be awards to all 30K finishers and all 50K finishers. Please note that ski caps may not be available for post entrants. Pre entry deadline closes on Thursday, December 20. Hope to see you at Alley Pond Park on December 22."
