Race Reports from the Men: Team Champs

  From David Greenberg of the 40+: CPTC 40+ won the club championship with a little bit of everything –breakthroughs, consistency, depth, new faces, running while hurt and a little bit of luck. Scoring tends to shift around for a few days after team champs, but as of press time, we won the race and the maximum doubled points.  If the results stand as they were on Monday morning, I believe the points will be: CPTC 89 Warren Street: 78 West Side: 66 NBR: 55   And after the two worst races are subtracted: CPTC: 69 Warren Street: 60 West…

Race Reports from the Women: Front Runners

From Lauren Carter of the Open: It was a near perfect day.  The temperature was down and the sun was covered by heavy clouds, but the humidity, the humidity remained.  It was a small crew for the Women’s Open Team on Saturday, June 27th as they took to the roads to compete in the FRNY 5M. Photo: Nigel Francis Lead by Andrea Bradshaw, 30:45, the women forged ahead with the thought of taking home team prize money as well delicious popsicles.  Hot on her heels starting from the back of the corral was Nicole Falcaro finishing in 30:47.  Putting her…

Race Reports from the Men: Front Runners

From Greg Cass of the Open: Through the first 4 Club Points races of the year, the Open Men’s team “held serve,” finishing a solid 3rd in each of the distances NYRR has thrown into the mix so far.  Continuing that performance through the summer months can be challenging – vacations, downtime between seasons, tough weather, and too many park loops can all help contribute to the racing equivalent of the summer doldrums.  This past weekend’s 5-mile scoring race, the celebratory Front Runners New York LGBT Pride Run, was a classic “trap race,” but the Open Men fought through challenges…

Race Reports from the Women: New York Mini

  From Lauren Carter of the Open: The saying goes “Ducks fly together.”  ‘Sticking’ to tradition, it was a hot and humid morning as the Women’s Open Team took to the road for the Mini 10K.  As the gun went off, through the first few miles Lady Orange was a literally a PACK of orange with about 7 women running together through the first two miles.  The women’s open proved just how team oriented we are by working together in pairs or packs during the entire race to beat not just their competitors but also the sweltering heat.  Their efforts…

Race Reports from the Men: Retro Four Miler

From Phil Falk of the Open: CPTC men raced well on Sunday at the NYRR Retro 4-Miler. The race was retro, so we dug up the shortest shorts we had and were met with near-perfect late-spring weather. Our top five all sneaked in under 21 minutes, in a strong showing: Matt Lacey 20:26 – He’ll be moving out of NYC later this summer, so going out on a high note! Phil Falk 20:33 – seven second PR, from 2011. Kyle Marks 20:40 – just biding his time… Austin Taylor 20:47 – first road race for CPTC – welcome on board! Stan Berkow 20:57 – not bad for…
