Yes/No: Four runners under 20:00 at Buttered Corn Days Race?

It is time for the traditional DtB road trip to Sleepy Eye, Minnesota.  We will again check out the Buttered Corn Days road race scheduled to take place on Saturday.  There are three races—the 20k, 10k and 5k—that all start at 8:00 A.M.  Be sure to stick around for the parade and free corn (limit 6 ears per person).

If you cannot make the two-hour trip (from the Twin Cities) to Sleepy Eye, you'll certainly want to live vicariously by answering our question this week...

Yes/No: Will four or more athletes run faster than 20:00 minutes at the Buttered Corn Days 5k on Saturday?

In 2011, two athletes ran faster than twenty minutes in the Buttered Corn Days road race in Sleepy Eye.  The 2011 version was won by Duane Otfedahl in 18:02.  In 2010, six runners broke twenty minutes in a race won by Joe Goettl in 17:05

To play our game, simply type "yes" or "no" into the subject line of an e-mail and send it to us at DtBFantasy [AT] gmail [DOT] com before 8:00 A.M. CDT, Saturday, August 18th.  Please put your answers in the subject line of the e-mail and make sure your full name appears somewhere in the e-mail.

My Answer:  Yes

The Yes/No question last week was:  Will more women run faster than 60:00 than men under 50:00 at the MDRA 15k on Sunday?   The answer was  yes - six women broke 60 minutes while only three men broke 50.  Twenty players answered correctly last week.  Mike Mason maintained his lead and now has twenty-two points.  Ryan Aylesworth and Gloria Jansen are right behind with twenty-one points and then there are three players with twenty points.
