Gopher Attack Marathon Results, March 25, 2016

Well, Mother Nature teased us with promise of early summer-like running conditions, and then whacked Regina with its biggest snow storm four days before the race.  But it all turned out okay - the streets were mostly clear of snow and ice; and the -7 degree weather kept all the runners from overheating.   Unfortunately, it was too cold for the gophers, and no attacks were reported.

Highlights of the race were the strong showing of the Marathon Matters runners.  Since results are linked above, I will just highlight the runners who set PRs.  Please send an email if you are a MM member, set a PR, and we miss you below!
