Thanks to everyone – today was a great day!

Joe Stanley and Rick Hubbell finish their 25th consecutive LoopResults are at the bottom of the writeup below. Leave your comments below about the Loop and the day.

Tommy Nohilly won his 7th Leatherman’s Loop today in 38:40.  Ann MacDonald won her first Loop today in 48:49. Congrats to them both!  Joe Stanley and Rick Hubbell finished their 25th consecutive Loop this year. Both runners have finished every Loop since 1987 when the Leatherman’s Loop was founded.

Thanks to the park staff, the Lewisboro Volunteer Ambulance Corps, and the Loop volunteers!

Some runner reports (keep ‘em coming!):

• A HUGE deer was spotted bounding through the line of runners by Dr Stu and other runners – almost taking out 11 year old Dillon Aryeh but thankfully missing!  It’s been 10 years since 11 year old “Buck” Farro’s collision in 2001 (what is it about 11 year olds and deer in the Loop?). Glad it wasn’t repeated. Dillon went on to finish the Loop in 55:41, an amazing time and good for 5th in his division. Race organizers conferred and awarded him a pie for fastest-youngest-possibly-ever runner.

• A bunch of minor injuries were noted and at least one serious ankle injury was reported. Can injured folks or friends contact us so we can follow up with those runners to see how they fared?

World premiere to be announced some time in the future on this very website!
