CB300 Analysis #2

Good morning!

Using the most recent stats available from the CB300 website, here are the total run times for the first two legs of the race: Start - Chisto - Paxson



Although Allen's SPK Black Team was the seventh to arrive in Paxson, his run time from Chisto was again the fastest in the field. The team has now run almost 30 minutes faster than the next fastest team over the combined two legs.

Already you can see a great example of how the "leader board" doesn't necessarily reflect who is running fastest. The additional time that Allen rested the team in Chisto makes it look like he's "behind" when he is in fact "ahead" and running very, very well!

I'll try to keep up with these stats during the day, all relying on the CB300 folks being able to post updates (and trying not to be too distracted by the Seattle-Atlanta football game... Go Seahawks!)

Happy is very happy... Right this moment, she's sleeping on the bed... Completely unaware of the CB300 and football game drama going on around her!

What are the chances that someone is resting on the trail and will then blast through some checkpoints? Or is that unlikely with 18 hrs required at checkpoints and this length of race?
