Race Results

Note: in order to manage the large field of competitors and provide good conditions for all at this championship event, competitors are split into several groups by age and gender. The groupings are A (men 21-44, classes 1-4), B (men 45-59, classes 5-7), C (all women), and D (men 60+, classes 8-14). The SG and the GS events were run on two courses to separate the younger A/B classes from the C/D groups of older men and all ladies while in the SL each group competed on their own course.
