why can’t you publish “senior” times??
Hi Jay! Thanks for your interest in RG!! As you’ve seen, we generally print only a short list of actual results, as races have full results on their websites. We mention newsworthy results of athletes of any ages and print photos if we have them. We also publish featured stories by and about seniors.
