Lynn Bjorklund was the top predictor in the opening pace race of the 2012 season held on the Canyon Rim Trail in a return to Winterly conditions for Los Alamos, but the number of participants that showed up made for a successful event.

She was 10 seconds off her predicted time and was also the 2nd fastest in the 3 mile run with a time of 23:50.

Other accurate predictors were: Bob Weeks with a 13 second differential, Roy Cope at 23 seconds off, and Michelle Jones 65 seconds off her prediction.

There were four distances run in the race and the fastest runners were: 8 year old Zac Jones 10:37 in the 1 mile, Pam Erickson with a 13:42 time in the 1.5 mile Cooper Run, David Kratzer at 18:13 in the 2 mile, and Nathan Romero coming in at 18:51 in the 3 mile.

Next week's race will be held near the bottom of Main Hill near the junction of State Routes # 502 and # 4 on the access road to the County sewage control plant.
