Race Reports from the Men: Scotland 10K

From Phil Falk of the Open: It was a fine day for a race on Saturday, the Scotland 10K, and the CPTC men put up solid results to show it! We are leaving behind us winter weather miseries, so really the only complaint you could lodge was “wow, that sun in my eyes was sure bright!” I stayed on the sidelines this race (due to a quasi running-related injury), which gave me the unusual chance to watch a team race from the sidelines. It turns out this is much easier than running the race! But it also allowed me to…

Race Reports from the Men: A WR Relay and the Washington Heights 5K

 From Greg Cass of the Open: The Open Men took to the streets of Washington Heights looking to make a statement in the first scoring race of the year.  After requiring a strong effort in the final scoring race of 2013 to lock down 3rd place for the year, the group is focused on an even effort throughout the year so that we don’t necessarily have to round up a full squad for a December race in the snow…  Stan Berkow, Will Davis and Matt Lacey Photo: Sue Pearsall With perfect weather and a strong line-up of individuals that included…

Race Reports from the Women: Washington Heights 5K

  From Lauren Carter of the Open: Photo: Ben Ko Despite a tough winter filled with snow, ice and lack of bridle path, the Women’s Open Team had a sensational showing on Sunday in the first road race of the year, the Washington Heights 5K. Rolanda Bell Photo: Sue Pearsall The Women’s Open Team displayed great depth and speed with six ladies running under 18 minutes and, as team, finishing just 1:18s behind rival NYAC in 2nd place. They were led by Rolanda Bell’s sub-17 finishing time of 16:52 and 2nd place overall finish.  Jane Vongvorachoti followed suit as the…

Spring Marathon Season Kicks off with Twin Wins

  Daniel Ifcher and Kate Pallardy CPTC-New Balance went “Old School” this past weekend at the NYC Runs Central Park Marathon, winning both the men’s and women’s overall titles.  NYC Runs held its 2nd annual Marathon this past Sunday, emulating the spirit of the original NYC marathon, with a modest size of entrants and a course entirely inside Central Park – 5 loops of the park (excluding Harlem Hill) plus a little to round out the 26.2. This winter’s weather has been tough, but it did not slow down the team, which went 4 for 4 in overall and divisional…
