and the results posted here?

1 32:31 Bill Rodgers GBTC CR
2 32:37 Mike Roche New Jersey
3 32:53 Craig Virgin Athletics West
4 33:02 Mike Slack Minn, MN
5 33:04 Greg Fredericks State College, PA
6 33:07 Hillary Tuwei U. Richmond (KEN)
7 33:10 Bruce Bickford Northestern TC
8 33:12 Bob Hodge GBTC
9 33:18 Greg Meyer GBTC
10 33:20 Alberto Salazar GBTC

I wonder why the different time results???


That's odd.

The results that I've posted are the correct results, except for the typo. Rodgers set the course record of 32:21, which matches the historical result on the Falmouth website.

But the times in that newspaper clipping are weird. There's no rhyme or reason in them, sometimes 15 sec off, seometimes 25 seconds , sometimes 30 seconds.
