This winter’s weather has been tough, but it did not slow down the team, which went 4 for 4 in overall and divisional…

Race Reports from the Men: Club Nats XC and Ted Corbitt 15K

From Matt Lacey of the XC Team: On Saturday December 14th, four brave men toed the starting line at the USATF Club Cross Country National Championships in Bend Oregon, a 10k challenge to cap off an exciting year of racing for the CPTC Men.

Cross Country veteran Jon Kenworthy came next, 23 places later. Two “newbies” rounded out the CPTC squad, with Taylor Burmeister finishing in 250th and…
