Race results were posted following the race. They were taped to the Runner's Roost trailer.
The 5k/10K always starts on the beach - it has for years and the maps say as much.
The only change from previous years that was not posted was the start of the half which started on the south side of equalizer lake. I assume this was to avoid running across the street at the start?
I too was looking forward to the Boy Scout pancakes. They were a staple of the post race party.
