Hi all, 

Thanks for your patience with the results (distance educating and parenting distance learners do not mix) and thanks to those of you who participated in Kumu'NOhu last week. We raised over $1800 for charity through our biking/running/paddling/erging...

Here are full Kumu'NOhu results, broken down by age group and gender within divisions (so lots of people made the podium, in other words). If you placed within your specific division, you will receive an email with an image of your particular trophy(ies) as soon as I catch up on the work deadlines I've already missed this week. If you have any questions about the results, please write to me at this email address. 

Cheers, and I hope at least as many folks compete in "Non-umental" in June -- recruit a friend!

Here is the writeup that will appear in WCC's Currents newsletter: 

In the absence of WCC’s home small craft opener on the weekend of May 2, thirty-five athletes from Florida to DC to Connecticut to upstate New York participated in the first -- and hopefully only -- ever Kumu’NOhu virtual canoe race. With divisions in all forms of human-powered propulsion, times were acknowledged in three ways: course times over 15 kilometers of the participant’s choosing; adjusted times with a one-minute bonus for every ten dollars donated to a charity such as Jose Andres’ World Central Kitchen; and sweepstakes times using an approximated conversion system to compare the adjusted times across divisions. Entrants ranged from traditional racing craft -- OC1, kayak, and SUP -- to rowing and paddling ergs, bicycles, running on foot, and (apparently) quad roller skates. Altogether, the racers raised over $1,800 for charity in lieu of entry fees, including $330 by James Dunbar of NCA, who conducted fundraising online via Facebook and whose resulting time bonus enabled him to handily win the overall sweepstakes in the men’s division. There are too many breakdowns by age, craft, and gender to include all podium finishers, but a few are included here (individual winners in all divisions, genders, and age classes receive notification by email, along with an image of their trophy). Remember that sweepstakes times include a bonus for funds raised for charity and a conversion to compare racers across divisions. Trophies shown here with their creators, Alice and Brigid Day-Biehler.
