Team Circuit Finale ... City of Lakes acted as the final leg of the USA Track and Field - Minnesota Team Circuit. Run N Fun's men and the St. Cloud River Runners women won the team open divisions at the event according to preliminary scoring, HERE.

If the post-race team results hold, Run N Fun will have defended both its men's and women's open titles for the seven-month-long, nine-race series.

The Run N Fun men will have now won at least a share of five of the last six circuit titles. They won outright in 2003, 2005, 2007, and this year, and shared the crown with Runners Edge in 2004.

The Run N Fun women will have won the last three titles.

The scoring listed under Team results is not correct. Foley and Mansfield won followed by Run n Fun and Then TC Running. This race scored 3 deep at 5 as listed. I know you will post actual results when done, but just for information purposes. Thanks for all you do!
