Krissyk does it again. These are spectacular. If you haven’t checked them out yet you’ll want to take a look!
If you’ve been wondering about cross country, she also has some great pics up from this past weekend’s USATF-NE Cross Country Championships at Franklin Park.
Though very dry year’s Ravenswood race was deceptively technical, as a strong overnight wind covered the trails with a thick blanket of fresh leaves and made it very hard to know what your feet were going to hit underneath. Lots of bloody knees and elbows post-race to illustrate the challenge of the course this year!
Congrats to race winners Todd Callaghan, who took first for the men in a time of 27:05, and to Jennifer Howland, who claimed the women’s title in 32:11. Other notables included the races youngest ever finishers, Grace and Owen Layton. I knew about Owen (age 9) at the finish but didn’t realize his sister Grace (age 7) had also run. WOW guys, way to rock it!
Thanks so much for an awesome and fun day out on the trails. Mark your calendar’s for next year’s race on October 19, 2014!
The Ravenswood Trail Race is now 75% full. There will be NO day of race registration and the race number will be firmly capped. We do not have adequate parking, bathroom facilities, or trail width to accommodate a larger crowd. If you want to spend your Sunday running through the woods with an awesome group of people and then stuffing yourself silly on delicious food, register now and guarantee your spot!
