Race Reports from the Men: Ted Corbitt’s 15k

Report from David Greenberg of the 40+:  The M40+ took its third consecutive gold at the final race of the 2016 NYRR team points race. Our traditional end of the season kick arrived, and it was fearsome.  But it left us just short of a third consecutive championship.  Unofficial points standings after Corbitt:  Urban Athletics: 155  CPTC: 152  After deleting our two worst races:  Urban: 144  CPTC: 132  The race was a fitting close to our season – it had a little of everything that we have brought to the table all season. Old faces, new legs, great performances and…

Race Reports from the Men: NYC Marathon

Report from Greg Cass and Phil Falk of the Open: The NYC Marathon is always one of the best days of the year in the city, and 2016 didn’t disappoint.  As the calendar turned to November, we mostly managed to leave the hot weather in the summer and the painfully cold rain and wind in October / Staten Island.  This year’s marathon saw comfortable temperatures and a cool fall breeze – perfect spectating weather but perhaps just a little short of ideal for the runners.  CPTC showed well – persevering on the course and cheering from the sideline.  In the end,…

Race Reports from the Women: NYC Marathon

Report from Veronica Jackson of the Open: Congratulations to everyone who raced in the 2016 New York City Marathon.  Marathon Sunday is a great day to be a New Yorker, and the CPTC Women’s Open Team took on all five boroughs with New York pride this past weekend. In a day that was crisp but windy, our team fought hard through headwinds, crosswinds, and up the dreaded 5th Ave. In hearing from some of our great racers, it’s clear that no matter the outcome, the New York City Marathon is a magical day, made even better by the tremendous CPTC support…

Race Reports from the Women: Staten Island Half

Report from Veronica Jackson & Jacy Kruzel of the open: Staten Island Marathon Recap & Safety Classes! Hi Ladies! Alysia Dusseau Congratulations to everyone that battled the elements at the Staten Island Half Marathon this weekend! Through the wind and the rain, the CPTC Women’s Open squad was small but fierce, led by Alysia Dusseau in 1:24:48. Alysia said that even though the weather was brutal (she even overheard someone say that this is great practice if anyone likes steeplechase), it was cool running under the Verrazano Bridge a month ahead of the marathon.

Race Reports from the Men: Staten Island Half

Report from Phil Falk of the Open: We boarded the ferry at Bowling Green before the sun rose, swaddled in raincoats and garbage bags. As Manhattan receded into the distance, no Statue of Liberty was visible through the thick mist. At the Staten Island Yankees Ballpark, runners lined-up under awnings, sheltering from the elements, loath to take off those warm-ups. But we finally got out those singlets and corralled into the starting area, ready to tackle the S.I. Half Marathon.  The rain turned into a light drizzle for most of the race, thankfully, but the puddles stuck around. While you…
