A short clip on YNN:

Unfortunately the action shots are a little less action-y than I'd like.

Very cool to get some TV coverage!

What's YNN?

"Your News Now;" it seems to be a feature of several New York news stations. About the Rochester YNN.

Thanks. But I think what I'd really like to know is:
Does anybody watch YNN?

Why are you all "spring" orienteering when it's almost fall?

Guy, we were watching YNN at about 6:30 AM Sunday and suddenly saw Ben run by and punch the control. A good way to wake up!

That is awesome!

Way cool, Tim! Anything to keep up Ben's interest!

But were you watching YNN just because you knew they were there at the Sprint?

On the "do people watch it" question - I think so. It's the cable station's news coverage. They run weather every 10 minutes, so we leave it there often just to let things run by and catch a quick report at times. (and naturally you're looking away or in the other room right when the weather comes on, so you leave it for the next one;-)

They repeat things on a schedule of some sort through the day.

I don't think the reporter was very excited by the running and such - mostly the people and atmosphere of the event. He seemed to be rather done with it right about the time the elite group was starting...-)

[But of course he had to get to three other events that day...]

This isn't TV, but thanks to a sprained ankle I took lots of pictures of people finishing the middle. Most of the pictures are blurry, but you can probably find yourself. They're here.
