Brooks Hat Giveaway

I'm giving away a new Brooks Hat (black with colored accents) to the person that comes the closest to guessing my Finishing time at Cascade Crest 100 miler.

This is an easy contest.

*Just guess my finishing time at Cascade Crest 100 Mile Endurance Run as a comment to this post.
*Last day to enter your guess is Friday August 28Th. My birthday encase you forgot ;*)
*Limit! Only one guess per person.
*If there is a tie, I'll flip a coin.

Hint: 2006 I finished in 30:22, 2007 I finished in 25:05, 2008 I finished in 23:05.
Hint: I’ll be shooting for another aggressive PR. (could backfire)
Hint: This year the course is a little longer with an extra climb or two. (No Ropes, No Tunnel)

Good Luck!

You're in great 100 mile shape this year Arthur! Even with the climb and the extra distance, i say you beat your run last year by 5 minutes....23 flat.

What is the point of running if I have no hope of beating you anymore? :-)


*tc said...

I think Shawn guessed your birth year by mistake. ha!

Ok I'll bite. 22:40

Jonathan Bernard said...

King Arthur said...

Jane Herzog emailed 21:08:36.

Beat last year's by an hour: 22:05. Make Lightning Bolt proud!

Alvin said...

Have fun out there! Go Get 'em!

Jon said...

20:35 - You've gotten stronger on your climbing and the weather is more cooperative this time around, so unless you get lost in the revised section or suffer another dehydration issue, I think this is another PR moment.

See ya this weekend.
