Walking Warriors and Perpetual Pedestrians represented HRW again and were almost blown away by the headwind from Lawrence. It was cool at the start and quite warm at the finish but the 7 veterans and 3 rookies arrived in Lawrence pretty much as predicted (see NEWS link). Our two teams beat 7 teams in the age- and gender-based running divisions. The mileage shown is approximate and the times shown are based on our own watches.
