Last year's race report began, "The 23nd Bull Run Run was held in beautiful weather." Not this year. The 24th Bull Run Run was held in cold, wet, windy weather. There was mud and there was snow. But there was fun and many outstanding performances. The overall male and female winners were husband and wife Brian and Amy Rusiecki. Brian, age 37, won his fourth BRR. Amy, age 36, won the crown for the first time.
Race directors Alisa Springman and Jim Daniels did a fantastic job. The many volunteers who assisted them took good care of the runners.

Entrants List (for identifying runners)
NOTE: Links below open new windows or tabs. Your back button won't get you back here, but this should keep you from getting lost in the pictures.
Each runner under 10 hours scores for his or her side. If the runner is from the side with the greater number of entrants (the North, as it was in 1861 and is now), he will score one point. If the person is from the side with the smaller troop strength (the South), he will score a proportionally larger amount to account for the lesser troop strength.
For the second year in a row, the South won the friendly competition. No one takes this very seriously. Many runners from Virginia ran for the North.

Note on Photos
We had several photographers this year. There should be a photo of most runners at least somewhere. You should check with the photographer before you use a photo in any way. Most are ok to let you use a photo, including printing it, for private, non-commercial purposes. Any public display of these photos should include proper attribution to the photographer.
