Very hilly (mostly climbing) race through Clifty Falls State Park in Madison, IN. Not trail running, but mostly uphill. About 200 people, but nobody I really knew showed up. I won by about a minute, so it was probably one of the weakest fields I have seen. 1st place overall, by myself the whole way - about 1 minute ahead of 2nd, I think. First race win for me, so tht felt good. The race organizers start the awards and hop right in to age group awards, and I realize as they read my name for first place M30-39, that they actually have no overall awards :( !?!
Yeah - first time winning, and they don't even acknowledge it! :( I got a non-specific medal with their race name on it. Oh well - I'll take the moral victory all the same. We're not running for the glorious $1.50 medals for awards, but it would've at least been nice to be acknowledged as the race winner. I guess that's why no good guys were at this race.
