High School standout Niki Lefebvre (146) on her way
to a new course record. Twenty-six year old Jim Belanger

division) on his way to a 20:16.

About the Series' Scoring
The Lakeview 5K Series uses a unique scoring
system. Points are awarded based on a relative merit for a
performance based on the fastest runner. The winner receives
1000 points and lesser points are awarded to each finisher
based on time. Points are computed by dividing a runners'
time into the time of the first place finisher then multiplying
by 1000. Weekly results will be posted immediately after each
race and on Cool Running. An awards ceremony will be held
by 7:15 PM each week.
