Final 2012 race times can be seen online here
PLEASE NOTE: The vendor’s equipment for “real time” tracking was unavailable for Big Gay 10K results for 2012. Therefore, this year’s results are “gun start time”. Gun time, like in drag racing, shows your race time from the gun start. If it took you two minutes to cross the start line, that would be included in your finish time. Feel free to make up your own time…we’ll never tell!
