2006 Lake Atwood Ten Mile Honor Runners

Men:  Myron Leinwetter, Gannon White, Brian Dumm, Brad Pace, Steve Scoville, Andrew Leatherby, Marvin Metzer, Paul DiGrappa, Don McCandless, Austin Vigil, Bob McAnany and Noel Pace.  Women: Kim Jones, Maria Korb, Amy Hayes and Margaret Kritzer

Honor Runner:  The general standard adopted for Honor Runner status in the Men's division is a top 20% finish time in a Age Group for all races from 1972 through 2009. The exceptions to this general standard are: a) those runners in the 20-29 age group must be a top 10% finisher of all men runners in all races from 1972 through 2015; b) those in the 70 and older age groups must finish; and c) all runners completing 25 or more races qualify regardless of time.  Honor Runner status for women is 86.7% of the men's times. A percentage of the men's times is used for the women because we have had 2,892 men finishers and only 420 women finishers and thus a much larger experience base.  86.7% is used because this is the ratio between the women's top 10% times vs. the men's top 10% times.
