Weather Smiles on Up-The-Hill Race (Sort Of)

Though spritzed by showers and spooked by an occasional stray lightning bolt, the traditional up-the-hill race on 8 September escaped any major meteorological hindrance. The pace for the foot and bike races was set by two newcomers who work part-time with Facilities Support Services. Jeff Vibert won the men's bike race and Tim Catalano aced the men's run, finishing a scant second behind Andrew Crook's 1990 record of 7:28. (Perennial winner Alan Hills was foiled when his bike seat broke just as the race began and later fell off.) Laura Stoltz and Deidre Garvey each scored a first and a second place in the women's foot and bike races. The reindeer-hatted HAO team took first place in the relay race, whose results were based on a combination of finishing time and participation level. Complete results can be found on the Employee Activities Committee page on the World Wide Web at http://www.uca r.edu/internal/eac/eac.html. Below is a summary, followed by a samping of race photos. ¥BH
