canoe paddle 1:04:00  6.0 km (5.6 kph)
With quite a buffer between 2nd and 4th place we enjoyed the last paddle back into Bala as the sun was coming up finishing 3rd overall and 2nd place Co-ed.
Thanks to Bob GStix and Bash for putting together a great course as well as all of the volunteers and vetters. I think this course ranks as my most-favorite 24 hour course I've ever raced on. Tons of route choices on the treks all off-trail, excellent paddling and rideable mtn biking off-road where it should be.
Folks who are tired of racing in the same areas of the east coast should give this race a serious look next year. I doubt you'll regret it.
I'm looking forward to the chance of bringing Bob the Beaver to NY next year, at least for a little while ;-) .
