Pedestrian Pacesetters Karen Swisher 09:45:00

Walkin for the Heart Phil Jacobs 10:25:00
Walking Warriors BJ Thornburg completed 8 legs

HRW had 4 teams for the 2016 Brew to Brew ranging in age from 17 to 82, with 16 veterans and 4 rookies. There were a number of changes in distance on the course and some distance discrepancies from the stated course distances. The Walking Warriors had a member with an injury and even though the Captain, BJ, did 3 legs, the team decided to discontinue the race after leg 8 for health and safety reasons. A big celebration was held at the Mad Greek restaurant afterwards with numerous toasts to deserving racers. See the PICTURES link for photos before, during and after the race.
