Bull Run Run Home Page

The 26th Bull Run Run will be remembered as the weather disaster that wasn't. Quatro will do a full report soon, but the results are now available.

For the first time in Bull Run Run history, Frank Probst did not start of finish. Tim Stanley was back from injury for his 23rd finish and David Janosko him with 23. Suzie Spangler and Michele Harmon each finished number 16 and continued to share the title of most BRR finishes by a female.

Come back here for more information as it is added.

North-South Competition

Finishers under 10 hours3916
Total Entrants315
Factor (North/South)2.3158

Each runner under 10 hours scores for his or her side. If the runner is from the side with the greater number of entrants (the North, as it was in 1861 and is now), he or she will score one point. If the person is from the side with the smaller troop strength (the South), the score will be proportionally larger to account for the lesser troop strength.

The North won for the second year in a row. No one takes this very seriously. Many runners from Virginia ran for the North.

Note on Photos

You should check with the photographer before you use a photo in any way. Most are ok to let you use a photo, including printing it, for private, non-commercial purposes. Any public display of these photos should include proper attribution to the photographer.
