The fastest runner of the two days was 30-year-old Josh Baker, whose time on Saturday of 20 minutes, 55 seconds works out to 6:56 a mile – with all those obstacles. On Sunday, 29-year-old William Gelling clocked 21:08, or 7 minute miles, to lead the field. Read the full story

On Friday, the three schools came together for the first Trifecta, a battle of the bands featuring six student-created garage bands. Read the full story
