2018 Rock Shrimp Race Results

Thanks to all the runners for running with us at the 2018 Rock Shrimp Festival Races.  The results are posted below.  Please note after announcing the results, we were alerted to a birthday input error on the Women's 10K (50 & 60+ age group) and Men's 5K (60+ age group) so the results are slightly different than announced.  We apologize and appreciate the gracious manner in which the errors were pointed out!
