Race Reports from the Women: Percy Sutton 5k & Fifth Avenue Mile

  Report from Ani Go of the 40+ and 50+: The Percy Sutton 5k report 40+ women: We love Harlem!  The Percy Sutton 5k is a great race to honor a great citizen of Harlem, give Harlem some runner love, and is a fun and challenging change of pace from Central Park.  It lets us know that summer isn’t quite over yet. What ideal conditions for a summer 5k! A 66 degree start on a hazy summer morning.  Our scoring team leads with Colleen McGurk: PR Queen with a 18:37, 2nd in age group, 85.17% AG…and is also prepping for…

Race Reports from the Men: Percy Sutton 5k & Fifth Avenue Mile

Report from Phil Falk and Ed Mulder of the Open: 5th Avenue Mile is always an exciting, action-packed day for CPTC, with runners across divisions streaming down the street throughout the morning, and 2017 was no exception. Conditions were near-perfect for late Summer, with a beautiful, sunny-but-cool day and a moderate tailwind (hey, 12 mph from the North is not bad!). Over 100 runners from the team competed (!), and the CPTC men snagged second place in the team results. (First place escaped our grasp by less than one second!)   In the NYRR Championship section, Victor Palumbo led the charge on the men’s…

Photo: Cathy Vandergeest From Masters Track Captain Amy Kvilhaug: Rounding out our masters outdoor track season, Jen St. Jean competed at the NCCWMA (North and Central America and Caribbean Region of World Masters Athletics Championships) at York University in Toronto yesterday and won the 1500m race in a time of 4:54.14. She endured a rainy start, a gun misfire, and then a 65 minutes lightning delay before finally toeing the line for the race.  After battling some serious fatigue throughout midway through the summer (and into Masters Nationals in Louisiana where she finally had to shut it down for a…

Race Reports from the Women: Team Championships

Report from Jacy Kruzel and Veronica Jackson of the Open: For the first time in 10 years, the CPTC Women’s Open team took home the win at the NYRR Team Championship 5 mile race in Central Park. This is no small feat, as many NYRR teams include athletes that shine on the international stage! The hard work, focus, and drive of every runner contributed to this and we are so proud of everyone who raced! The team finish was the summation of many stellar performances in hot and humid conditions, starting with a podium finish by Ivette Ramirez (3rd place…

Race Reports from the Men: Team Championships

Report from David Greenberg of the 40+: Great comebacks are often long slogs, fighting race by race or game by game to catch up. That’s not what happened to the CPTC 40+ men. We had the kind of comeback that happens in one cataclysmic moment when everything was one way before…then everything was different the next. The minute before Team Champs, we were tied for third and far behind leaders Urban Athletics. The minute after, we were tied with Urban for the lead. Yes, if we drop each team’s two worst results, after our victory at Team Champs we are…

Race Reports from the Men: Queens 10k

Report from Greg Cass and Phil Falk of the Open: A flat 10K is hard to find in NYC.  Typically, a NYRR 10K means a standard Central Park loop – certainly familiar, though not necessarily “easy” or “fast”.  When the Queens 10K was added to the Club Points Series this year, many CPTC racers circled the race as an opportunity to attack a flat course over the 10K distance, even if it did come with the challenges of getting out to Flushing Meadows for a 7:45am Saturday start.  But although the course was flat, the competition was deep, and the…
