Well a picture is worth a thousand words… and the 9th Annual LOST Pier Pic says a lot about all the LOSTies… it was a great race and a lot of fun!
So here is the jist of it… it was our biggest and best race ever! I know each year I always say this year is going to be our best race ever, and some year I’ll be wrong, but I haven’t been yet! (at least about that :-p).
First of all we lucked out with the weather. Totally. It was supposed to pour rain and thunderstorm and the whole bit… but it held off until a few hours after the race. And instead we got perfect conditions! 72F/22C… flat water… incredibly hot and humid 35C+… which is fine if you are going for a nice swim! We also had our biggest turnout ever…
Number of Participants:
- 2016 – LR – 114 swimmers – 73 wetsuit, 41 naked (36%)
- – LM – 55 swimmers – 38 wetsuit, 17 naked (31%)
- total: – 169 swimmers – 111 wetsuit, 58 naked (34%)
… and here are the top placing swimmers in each race… and the ones who will have their names engraved on the LOST Race Trophy and the LOST Mile Trophy!
- Fastest ‘Wetsuit – Man’: 54:27, Geminio Grossi
- Fastest ‘Wetsuit – Woman’: 57:57, Megan Dodge
- Fastest ‘Naked – Man’: 52:29, Dylan Kent
- Fastest ‘Naked – Woman’: 58:51, Lynn Rodgers

- Fastest ‘Wetsuit – Woman’: 31:27, Heather Winmill
- Fastest ‘Naked – Man’: 24:37, Luis Escobar

And if a picture says a thousand words then the video must be worth a few thousand! So I’ll spare you all from a book about the LOST Race and let you watch the video! It turned out pretty well. Enjoy… and thanks for coming out to swim or volunteer! See you at the 10th annual LOST Race & LOST Mile next year!
Lots of great pics and video, including drone video too! Thanks to John Johnston, Branko Vrzic and Phillip McCatty of Drone Therapy for all the great pics that we put together!
Hope to see you all at the Global Swim Series – North American Championship on Sept 4, at Woodbine Beach in Toronto!
