Yuri Smirnov won the men's division for the second straight year, cutting nearly three minutes of last year's time and an incredible 57 seconds off the course record. Congratulations to the new Pretty Good Race record holder!
Susan Hinrichs made it three in a row with her women's division win.
In the third year of team competition, new powers arose in a very close finish. Computer Systems edged Theory by just two points, Corey Kosak's second place overall pacing the hardware guys. Two points behind Theory was Robotics, which edged AI by one point. Last year's champion Programming Systems slipped to fifth while SEI dropped to sixth from first two years ago and fourth last year.
The number of runners was down by 10 from the average, the perfect weather scaring away several potential entrants, plus a desire not to be last in the non-existent queue for food at the TG.
