Race Reports from the Women: Percy Sutton and Brooklyn Mile

From Jacy Kruzel of the Open: Congratulations to all the ladies who raced last Saturday at the Percy Sutton Harlem 5K Run.  With many teammate away on summer plans, the women’s team was still able to come out with a 4th place team showing. Teamwork was evident with the 5 scorers separated by just over 40 seconds. Jacy Kruzel, Alysia Dusseau and Lauren Carter were the first ones to cross the line.  They all considered themselves grateful that they did not get caught behind a mid-race ambulance! A 5K is way too short to have to stop for traffic 😉…

Race Reports from the Men: Percy Sutton

From Greg Cass of the Open: Road races that take place on paved surfaces outside of NYC’s amazing park system are actually pretty rare – not only does the Percy Sutton Harlem 5K offer a unique opportunity to run fast on actual NYC streets, but it also provides a nice tour of a part of the city that many racers may not ordinarily visit.  The weather was warm – this is a late August race after all – but the temperature and humidity dropped enough to give us a reprieve from some of the oppressive conditions of the previous weeks…

Race Reports from the Men: Front Runners

  Photo: Ben Ko From Phil Falk of the Open: Ahh, the summer race circuit, with the sun up by 5:30am, the warm haze hovering over the ground, the temperatures dipping into the seventies, and the mild tingle of a light heatstroke setting in. All things considered this was a bearable summer outing, although the bright, direct sun on much of the roads made the heat feel a little more intense. So not a day for the fastest racing, but still a good day to run! As NYRR put it, “A sea of rainbow-clad runners, many sporting T-shirts with ‘We…
