Race Reports:
 
Thanks to everyone who showed up and raced the 2013 Luminescent AR. Earlier in the week a major tropical storm threat put this event in serious jeopardy. Even leading up to check-in time, scattered thunderstorms were expected to be on tap for the duration of our time together.
 
However, not a single raindrop hit the ground or even one cloud marred the sky as every star in the galaxy was on display during this arresting nighttime affair. Combine that with below average temperatures and a cool breeze throughout and it's safe to say race conditions were nearly ideal.
 
In the Elite race, the somewhat rowdy winds made paddling a little choppy. Depending on who you ask, the trip was either frightening or fun. Team Jax came in first again proving that when they decide to race they are a force to be reckoned with. Of course the skilled veterans Not Lost, Just Resting were right there like always for another second place finish. This time they only missed first by an amazing 23 seconds. Rounding out the top three was Nature Calls who have made the podium all three times they've raced this year. These teams were the only ones to clear the course and did a fantastic job.
 
In the Sport race, we got another competitive sprint with all ten teams pretty much racing the full four hours. Pinnacle MobFit scored their third win of the year and second in a row. Cow Tipping Dwarfs made up a lot of time on the final Foot section but fell just a few minutes short. Sheriff's Posse was there the whole time and made it in right at the deadline. These familiar foes were the only three to clear the course and will all tell you about the one mistake here or there that cost them. A very competitive race that could have gone to all three.
 
Thanks again to everyone who braved the night with us. It's great to witness a mixture of great competition and pure fun experienced on the course. If you want more experience in the dark come out for the Nocturnal Challenge AR next month which will definitely be a great race. If not we will be easing back into sunlight at the Superhero AR in September ready to have some fun in the sun.
