Thank you everyone for a great race!!

We can't tell you how grateful we are to see such a turnout this morning, both runners and volunteers, in what was definitely less-than-ideal weather. You all were just superb and your support is what made the first Rotary Run for Mikinduri possible. Preliminary figures show that we raised over $2,000 for the Children of Mikinduri and that's just the mark we'll have to beat next year. Of course, we will try to secure some better weather ...

We hope you all had a fun time today. We'll post times and pictures to the website in the next week, so stay tuned for that. In the meantime, stay dry, don't stand under anything metal while it's lightning out .. and keep running.

Thank you again!
