Race Reports from the Women: Scotland

From Lauren Carter of the Open: In their second race of the road racing Lady Orange brought their best.  Lead by Aileen Conlon’s overall 4th place finish with a time of 36:16, CPTC Women’s Open finished 2nd overall. Not far behind was Ivette Ramirez. Ivette spent a good portion of the week fighting a virus but still manage to set a 70s PR, completing the course in 36:37. Ivette Ramirez Photo: Jay Mojica The record setting continued with our 3rd place scorer, Alex Bernardi. Alex set a 14s PR running the course (and dodging a few people along the way)…

Race Reports from the Men: Scotland

From Greg Cass of the Open: The NYRR Club Points races continued on a blustery, early April Saturday morning at this year’s version of the Scotland 10K.  The park may not be showing any outward signs of spring, but Scotland typically kicks off the traditional “spring road racing season,” and the CPTC Open Men’s team showed that hard work during the long winter slog has paid off (and that the strong result at Coogan’s was no fluke). The Open Men grabbed third place comfortably, clearing 4th place by nearly 5 minutes.  Relative newcomer Kyle Marks lead the way for the…

Race Report From the Women: NYC Half Marathon

From Lauren Carter of the Women’s Open: “Behold the Ides of March” the saying goes.  We checked and checked and checked again all week to make sure it would be spring(ish) temperatures and winds would be at our backs. On race morning, however, it seems the odds were not so in our favor.  Temperatures did not reflect the one day we all got to wear shorts that week, but rather a brutal reminder of winter pains we had endured for weeks. Cat Beck The Women’s Open Team showed mother nature, no matter how cold she intends for it to stay…

Race Reports from the Women: Washington Heights 5k

From Lauren Carter of the Open: On Sunday, the Women’s Open team kicked off their road racing season with a big bang in the Washington Heights 5K!    Andrea Bradshaw Photo: NYRR Led by Andrea Bradshaw’s 5th overall finish in a time of 17:43, Lady Orange finished 2nd behind NYAC by 20seconds.  Hot on her heels was Aileen Barry who made a big come back to the road with her 17:46 5K.  Cat Beck ran for a fierce 5K finish just behind Aileen with a time of 17:49.  Aileen Barry Photo: NYRR Finishing just over 18 minutes, Christina Argueta (18:03)…

Race Reports from the Men: Washington Heights 5k

Phil Falk Photo: NYRR From Phil Falk of the Open: The “Washington Heights Salsa, Blues, and Shamrocks 5K” is the traditional kick-off race for the NYRR club points season. Look, let’s be real, it was a rough month for training. As you’ve probably read, it was the coldest February in 80 years and third coldest on record. With an average temperate of 24 degrees, and RealFeel regularly in the single digits (or below), getting out for those early mornings or late nights has required a steeled sense of impenetrability.  Basically whole weeks where the temperature never even touched the normal lows for the…

We cannot believe it is finally here!”   The day dawned, a crisp…

Race Reports from the Men: Club Nats XC and the Corbitt

From Matt Lacey of the Open XC: It was an up and down day for the Open Men at the USATF Club Cross Country National Championships. One one hand it never feels good to walk away from a race with a 38th place team finish, but on the other hand there were numerous season’s best times and performances, and marked improvement over the last time the team competed at the 10k distance. It should also be noted that this race had a whopping 572 finishers from 68 scoring teams. Even on a championship caliber course such as the one at…
