In 2015, more than 450 trail runners and mountain bikers from across New England converged on East Burke for this annual autumn ritual of suffering and singletrack, known as the CircumBurke. Congratulations and thanks to the athletes, volunteers and sponsors who made it happen, especially the Belmont Stock Farm and Kingdom Trails for hosting and to Chris Scott and Sue Johnston of the Coyote Scramble for grilling up cheese sandwiches for runners ( and bikers) in the Victory feedzone all day, along with dozens of other essential feedzone and road crossing volunteers.
Our dedicated timing volunteers spent the better part of an entire day concentrating on bibs and number plates with their pencils, stopwatches and frozen fingers Preliminary results are at: https://circumburke.org/results/
Please help us fill in the blanks and inaccuracies by sending your corrections to firstname.lastname@example.org. Numbers were occasionally obscured by mud and garments .
Front runners in the trail running event often felt like orienteers. Your patience and determination exemplifies the CircumBurke spirit. We apologize. Route signs will be better next year.
(Should you wish to have a faster time, this can be arranged by purchasing the desired time reduction credits for the reasonable price of $1/minute at buyfastertimes.com! The final CircumBurke results sheet will be published at the close of trading on Friday.)
Thanks to our sponsors !
