Race Reports from the Women: Healthy Kidney 10k

Report from Jacy Kruzel and Veronica Jackson of the Open: Spring has arrived and the Women’s Open team used perfect spring like conditions to rack in a 3rd place finish and lots of individual PRs. Jordan Snyder led the charge, with a 2 minute PR.  Her time of 37:09 came after battling a major sinus infection all week.  Nothing could stop her from toeing the line, and the PR reward was pretty sweet! Our next scorer was Colleen, who continuously amazes the team as a whole – double dipping as a scorer for both the open and masters’ teams.  Hank…

Race Reports from the Men: Healthy Kidney 10k

Report from Phil Falk and Ed Mulder of the Open: CPTC Men lit up the roads last Sunday at the Healthy Kidney 10K, taking second place in the team competition, with an insane 31:27 average time for our top five finishers. I am told the CPTC Men’s team of legend in the early 1990s may have topped this performance, but I can say with some confidence it’s the strongest road 10K showing we’ve had in the 21st century.  Coach Tony notes: “Wow! That was a magical day! I am so proud of the whole crew!” Of course – it was a great day…

Race Reports from the Women: Washington Heights 5k

Report from Veronica Jackson of the Open: The CPTC Open Women’s Team is happy to report that they opened the 2018 NYRR Club Points series with an exciting victory and numerous personal records at NYRR Washington Heights Salsa, Blues and Shamrocks 5K,  despite a difficult and hilly course and 22 MPH wind gusts.  We couldn’t think of a better way to kick off the year. The Open Women’s Team touted four runners under 18 minutes, lead by Aileen Barry and her impressive 3rd place overall finish. Despite a slow and cautious first mile from the lead women, Aileen ran a major…

Race Reports from the Men: Washington Heights 5k

Report from Laurence Go of the 40+: Springtime for most is signaled with budding trees, tulip bulbs poking through the soil and the sound of birds singing. For us it’s the start of the road race season and the Washington Heights 5K. The temperature at the beginning of the race was springlike in the low 40s but unfortunately the whipping wind reminded us winter was still with us. We had a couple of late scratches but others were able to step up. We placed solidly in 3rd with a combined time of 50:58 which was 22 seconds faster than last…

Race Reports from the Men: Ted Corbitt 15k

Report from David Greenberg of the 40+: That’s a wrap on 2017, as we put a lock on the silver with our second-place finish at Ted Corbitt. The 15k was a microcosm of the year, as we again put together a fast top three, had a big turnout, set several PRs, had many debuts, ran significantly faster than we ran in 2016…but it wasn’t enough, as Urban simply has some outstanding masters competitors. That was the story all year. Congratulations to Urban for the win and we’ll see them at Coogan’s come March. Actually, we’ll see them at all the…

CPTC Women’s Open Fall Recap

  CPTC Open Women had quite the fall of racing that we wanted to share some thoughts our teammates had on their stellar performances. We would love it if everyone would share their thoughts on their races, PRs certainly not required! Hope to see everyone out for the last scoring race of the year on Saturday and at the holiday party in January! Percy Sutton: Our CPTC Open Women’s Team placed second in the Percy Sutton Harlem 5K! In a sneak peak of fall racing weather, we were just 20 seconds off of first place, and showed that the summer…

Race Reports from the Men: NYC Marathon

Report from Phil Falk and Ed Mulder of the Open: The New York City Marathon is a special race for CPTC. It’s our home turf. We trained through an unseasonably warm Fall (temps in the 70s in October anyone?). We crawled out for 6am intervals and crushed 7pm tempos. We ate long runs for weekend brunch. We logged miles. We pushed each other. We got injured. We recovered. And we showed up. 101-strong on race day. Our marathoners saw success – and disappointment –  that day. For the team, we notched third place by the slimmest of margins (35 seconds!).…

Race Reports from the Women: Bronx 10 Miler & Staten Island Half

Report from Ani Go of the 40+: There’s been so many races, it’s hard to know where to start!  But let’s start with Da Bronx where unseasonably warm temps set the stage for our ladies to run 10 miles. And the 40+ ladies ran quite well, taking 2nd place! The scoring team was made up of Colleen McGurk, Amy Kvilhaug, and new baby master Irma Bribiesca.   First scorer, Colleen McGurk, who ran 1:04.01, won her age group, scored for the open team, and…set yet another PR!   Says Colleen: Bronx is always my favorite race and even with the…

Race Reports from the Men: Bronx 10 Miler & Staten Island Half

Report from Phil Falk and Ed Mulder of the Open: The Bronx 10-Miler on September 24, was a tough one with unseasonal heat and humidity – the thermometer read 76! – but the CPTC open men’s team came out strong! As we enter the fall season Sunday’s race showed a lot of potential for the men’s open squad.  Matt Rand led the team with a fantastic finish in 51:01, placing 5th overall. Matt’s running incredibly well, and is poised to take on the Mohawk Hudson River Marathon on October 9. Second on the team was Edward Mulder in 53:16 for…
