        2003 Winter Series IV Black Forest - 20K
                     Black Forest, CO
                     February 22, 2003

Please Note: For the 20K race, somebody removed the course markings that
             were located near mile 7.  This caused some of the faster
             runners to race more than the 20K distance.  One of the
             runners who knows the course well (Larry Miller) corrected
             the problem when he arrived at that location by making a
             directional sign from some nearby logs.

             We sincerely apologize for the problems.  In all the years
             that we've used Black Forest as a race venue, we've never
             had any problems with signs being removed.

             The race director has authorized that times can be adjusted
             for those runners that ran more than the 20K distance.

             These results do have the times adjusted.  All of the
             Long Series results have also been updated with the
             time adjustments.  There is a detailed explanation
             after the women's results on how the times were adjusted.

             Thanks for all of your feedback.  It's always fun to
             see how passionate everyone is about our sport.
             
If you are an award winner and will not be able to attend the dinner,
awards can be picked up Monday, and thereafter, at Performance Awards -
17 South Wahsatch - Colorado Springs.
 
If you signed up to receive a blanket, and were not at the last event,
please contact Pat Lockhart and make arrangements to pick it up from her home.


Weather: Mostly cloudy, temps in the mid 30s and rising slightly.  There
         was an occassional light wind.

Course: Rolling hills on dirt and paved roads.  Elevation is about 7000 feet.
        Most of the course is within the forested area of Black Forest, thus
        there is some protection from any wind.  The exception to this are
        the latter miles of the 20K course, which is more exposed.  There
        are some terrific views of the Pikes Peak and the Front Range
        mountains.

This was the last race for the 2003 Winter Series.  We hope that you enjoyed
yourself and pushed hard with each succeeding mile.  But it's not over yet.
A Winter Series would not be complete without dinner, desserts, an aution
and presentation of the awards.

So be sure and mark Saturday, March 1st, 6:00 PM on your calendar.

This is the Winter Series Awards Dinner and Crazy Auction Night.
The main meal (pasta) will be provided for a nominal price.  You are
encouraged to bring your favorite dessert and share it with others.
So we'll eat, have an auction with lots of neat stuff, and present the
Winter Series awards.  The location is the downtown YMCA in Colorado Springs.
From I-25, take the Bijou Exit (Exit # 142).  Head east for about 3 blocks
and turn left onto Nevada Ave.  After about 2 blocks, the YMCA will be
on your right.

Please RSVP for the dinner portion of the evening so that we know how much
food to order.  You can RSVP to Pat Lockhart via e-mail at
PatLockhart@worldnet.att.net or phone (719) 598-2953.

If you have any questions about the results, please send an e-mail to
Dave Sorenson at dsorenso@gte.net.  If there are others who are interested
in learning how to do results, don't be shy.  Just give us a holler.

If you have other questions about the race, please send an e-mail to the
race director, Pat Lockhart, at patlockhart@worldnet.att.net

Thanks!!

We attempted to contact the top 30 runners in the above list to see if they
ran more than the 20K distance because of the missing sign at Bar X Road.
We did get responses from most of those runners.  The following shows how
much the times were adjusted for those 30 runners.  The time adjustment
was made by information supplied in e-mails and in phone converstations
with the runners.  The e-mails are presented at the bottom of this writeup.

And finally, here are the e-mails that I received about this.  These are
shown so you have an idea of how the time adjustments were derived.

-------------------------------------------

Dave,

I'm Randy Rodman.  I lost 6:30 to 7:00 minutes on my detour.
Not to mention the wind taken out of my sails from this.
I was on pace to run a 1:24.

I was ahead of Rick Shoulberg at the time by about 75 feet.
We probably finished close to each other so I would not have over
taken him for 1st.  

I'd appreciate if you'd check with Mark Koch.  He was no where near
us at that point and ended up 7 seconds ahead of me.
I would have over taken that spot.  

That was the 40-44 mens division.  

Andy Bupp was he the lead at the time.  Probably by over 2:00.
He's estimating going 3 miles out of the way.  He was running a consistent
6:00 pace yesterday.  18 minutes off.  

I'm not blaming anyone for this. It was unfortunate.  But I am very upset.

I love my blanket!

Dave,

You guys are really going out of your way for us by adjusting the times.  My
time at the 6 mile mark was 41:06.  My time at the 8 mile mark was 58:12, so
I am thinking that I lost about 3 minutes because I think I was actually
averaging close to 7 mins/mile.  That would have put me at 8 miles closer to
55:10 or so than 58:12.

I was with a couple of guys, one was the young guy, Jason Nykiel, and I
think either Rich Hadley or Rick Shoulberg.  If they didn't think it was
three minutes, then go with whatever they send in.

Thanks again,

Sheila Geere

Dave-

I knew something was wrong when the 7th mile never came.
I went straight instead of taking left, and continued straight
until I reached a 4-way intersection.  At that point I knew I
was off course and turned around, as did Rick Hessek, who was
running alongside me at the time.  We both estimate that we ran
an additional 3/4 mile to that stop sign, or 1 1/2 miles roundtrip.
At the pace we were going (around 6:40), that would be an additional
10 minutes.  I was running in 2nd place at the time, and finished
well back in around 15th.

I applaud you, Pat, and all of the volunteers who put on a high
quality event each year, giving up your Saturday in the process
without pay.  I understand that the event is different things to
different people, but for me personally the final result is not
nearly as important as the effort that I put into each race, the
sportsmanship and comraderie of the other partcipants.  All of
those objectives were met once again on Saturday, and I thoroughly
enjoyed the experience despite the disappointment of not knowing
what the outcome would have been had the course signs not been
removed.  Keep up the great work and thanks for all that you do.

Regards,

Brian Kates

---------------------------------------------

Dave,

I think I ran about 2 1/2 minutes or more than I should have. It doesn't 
really affect me and my entry was comped so I'm not concerned about it. No 
need to spend the time going in and changing it for me.

I just thought if you are trying to piece together approximate times for 
others that this might help you. See you Saturday night!!

Hi Dave,
 
I was one of the people who missed the left hand turn at Bar X Rd.
I was running in 5th place at the time, right behind Eric Peterson.
I think we added about 1 to 1 1/2 miles total for our mistake.  We
ran almost all the way down to the next 4 way intersection.  Brian Kates
and Rick Hessek were just in front of us and the 4 of us all turned
around together to run back to the turn and continue on.
 
Don't know if my mistake actually made any difference in my overall
standing or not.
 
Todd Murray

--------------------------------------------------

Hi Dave,

        Wow I don't envy your task in this.  My preference is to just not 
adjust any times as we the runners are suppose to know the course.  As for 
how much extra I ran, I am not sure.  Brian Kates and Rick Hesseck were 
about 15 seconds ahead of Todd Murray and myself.  We were running 2nd-5th 
place in the race at the time.  I am not sure who was in the lead as he 
was well ahead of us.  I know we didn't run more than 1.5 miles 
extra(total round trip back to getting on course).  But other than that I 
am not sure.  The four of us conferred for a second so maybe the 4 of us 
should get the same bonus time based on everyones opinion?

Dear Pikes Peak Road Runners Race Directors / Executives,

I appreciate your effort to adjust the results of us 20K race
participants who were unfairly led off course. I think this is
a very sincere and righteous offer to try and compensate us who
were cheated out of a fair race course, but I don't think that
there is any accurate and thus fair way to determine the exact
amount of time to compensate us. I think that the race should be
nullified and withdrawn from the long series. I think that if a
racer finished the fourth race then their first three long series
times should stand as the long series result.

I know that you PPRR Directors and Executives think that some
redneck hillbilly sabotaged the course, which I guess could be
true, but I really doubt that's what happened. Criminals always
have a motive and behavior, and I don't see what a redneck's motive
for this crime would be and certainly don't think the behavior is
consistent with what such a redneck would do. If a redneck that
hates runners did this then he would probably have knocked over the
sign and left it sprawled all over the road as a monument to his
hatred of runners. I can't see some redneck getting out of his pickup
and carefully disassembling the different parts of the marker post
and then carefully hiding all presence of the turn marker so that
none of the lead runners would see it. This behavior seems more
consistent with someone associated with the running race who wants
to gain an unfair advantage or make himself (or his friend or spouse)
look better in the long or even short results. I can think of all
sorts of reasons why someone participating in the long or even the
short series would want to throw off the times of the leaders in the
20K race, and these reasons would be very compelling to someone
(or the friend or spouse of someone) who actually has something to
gain in the long race results or comparative race results of the
short to long race or series.

If you do insist on adjusting the times of the 20K and then using
them to calculate the overall Long Series results, then I'll try to
give you my best perception of what happened, but please don't adjust
my time unless you make an effort to contact and adjust the times of
the competitors surrounding me. When we were running east on Pine Cone
road I recollect that the order was close to as follows:

1st The Bould Running Company tank top runner was out of sight

2nd Brian Kates (about 130 meters ahead of me)

3rd Rick Hessek ( about 100 meters ahead of me)

4th Eric Peterson (about 70 meters ahead of me)

5th Guy with purple, pink flowered spandex tights (about 40 meters ahead of me)

6th Randy Rodman (about 20 meters ahead of me)

7th Rick Shoulberg (me)

8th Rich Hadley (probably about 100 meters behind me)

Maybe I got the order wrong, but I don't think I missed someone,
but I guess it's possible. Please ask these guys to confirm the
exact scenario.

I was running in 7th with the strung out pack and I thought I heard
someone screaming way behind me, but I kept on following the pack,
since I didn't know what was going on and it was hard to hear. I ran
down the grade of Pine Cone Road and was about 250 meters from the
Vollmer Road stop sign and then I could hear better someone yelling
and screaming far behind me, so I stopped and stuttered but then
resumed running, so now Randy was then about 50 meters ahead of me.
Then I was about 200 meters from the stop sign ,and it looked like
Brian was almost to the stop sign, and Randy just turned around abrubtly,
so I figured we were going the wrong way, so I turned around and went
towards the screaming Rich Hadley. Hadley waited for me, but we didn't
wait for the 2nd - 6th guys, since they seemed like they had figured
out that we all needed to go back. Thus I got an unfair 50 to 260 meter
total out-and-back advantage over 2nd - 6th in the pack, but I in turn
lost my significant advantage that I had worked hard to build over Hadley.
On the way back to the missed turn at Bar X I do not remember seeing any
other runners that also missed the turn, but it is possible that there
was some others. If there was some other runners they should not be
compensated as much as us, and likewise the guys ahead of me should
get a little more compensation than me.

I looked at an acurate map on the internet, and it looks like from Bar X
to Vollmer Road is about just over 1000 meters. Thus the leaders of our
pack would have run and extra total out-and-back 2000 meters (1 1/4 miles)
while I estimate that I ran at least and extra 1600 meters (1 mile), and
Hadley ran less than me. Hadley did stop and wait for me to come back to
him, and he went out of his way to retrieve us even though he already knew
about the missed turn, so please commend him.

Thank you.

Rick Shoulberg

Hey Dave

--Just got you message on the phone.. Yes I did go a little out of the way
not much though probably 3 to 3:30 minutes.  It looked like I was in 7th or
8th at the time.. Hope that helps and I would also like to thank you for
doing the results, it was a great series my first time.

Thanks again Matt Connors
