Escape Results

It was another amazing day for all of us (how lucky we have been).  The weather was perfect, a clear day and not too hot. We had 52 individuals and 4 relay teams.

This year had a very competitive field with South Ender Joel Lanz taking 1st place again for the 8th time (out of 9 races) in a smoking time of 3:35:58!!!!  Joel ran a 2:10 Double Dipsea.

New Dolphin Club member Andrew Wynn came in 2nd in a time of 3:51:20 and tied with Dolphin John Ottersberg (1st Male Cruiser) for the fastest swim of the day 31:20.

The first woman was Katie Murphy with a time of 4:42:55. This was Katie’s first Escape!  Gina Rus (18 time Escapee) was the 1st woman cruiser with a time of 6:15:10. There were 11 virgin Escapee’s this year. John Nakamura finished his 25th consecutive Escape.

The dinner was outstanding and many thanks to all of the volunteers it took to make that happen, including a very special thanks to Robin Rome who not only does the race but also heads up the kitchen ahead of time planning and preparing the dinner.

We had a special recognition of Tom Callinan and Mary Cantini for their 25 years of participating in the event and two additional Hall of Famers were added to the plaque. They are South Enders Vince Fausane (5 time winner of the Escape) and Joel Lanz (8 time winner).
