RunFAR Racing Services was responsible for the timing and scoring of the 2006 Freescale Marathon and Half Marathon. I just received an e-mail informing me that all the weirdness we experienced with the race organization, the course routing, and the weather also somehow affected the timing: "At the start of the race, we misdiagnosed an interference problem and failed to review how our staff set up the digital antenna controllers. As a result, we missed half of the participants at the start line. We regret to inform you of this mistake and we are truly apologetic for the mishap." Oy veh!
