2013 Earth, Wind & Tired 5K
Thanks to everyone who participated in this inaugural event 12,000 years in the making! It was a spectacular day with a great time had by all. The only hiccup to the day was a software glitch with the timing software which was fixed by tech support after the race. The actual times were never compromised. The problem occurred when we switched from generator to beach building power supply. A software settings were reset to default which caused sorting errors. We apologize for the inconvenience. If your place in the standings changed and you desire the appropriate award please drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have a problem or questions regarding timing please email our timing company at email@example.com Thank-you to all of our racers and sponsors for making this event possible!
