The announcer said that Sean Astin was racing. As racers were coming through the finish line he announced about 6 times that Sean Astin had just finished. I turned to look and there he was! My friends and I went nuts and many people came around him to shake his hand and meet him. He was extremely cordial and didnt look annoyed or frustrated at all, despite just finishing a tiring adventure race.
