CRR Bruce Weber

In last weekend’s B+ 5K Fighting Childhood Cancer, CRR Bruce Weber ran a 19:20. In an absolutely loaded 50-59 age group in which eight runners broke 21 minutes, Weber could only place 3rd (discounting overall master’s winner and 50-50er Greg Cauller) with such a good finishing time. Weber came in 14th overall out of over 1,100 participants in the Wilmington race.

Great job, but there are definitely too many good old guys out there.

He will be one of the 24 competitors in Eugene, Ore., on the hallowed Hayward Field track in the 10K later this week.

Blue Hen 5K podium W’s

The weather was a bit muggy for an early June day, but that didn’t seem to hinder three Creek Road Runners this past Sunday out on their home course—Creek Road—in the University of Delaware’s annual Reunion Weekend Blue Hen 5K. Anyway, it was a good day to have a last name beginning with the letter “W.”

In 13th place was CRR Dan Weile, who placed 3rd among the 40-49s in 21:28. And Dean of Arts & Sciences and CRR George Watson, what do you know, came in 2nd in the 60-60 age group in 39:56. We suspect he was walking much of the way, though.

Blue Hen 5K coming up



Blue Hen 5K logoAs another academic year comes to a close, the University of Delaware’s annual Alumni Weekend is on the horizon, and with it its feature Blue Hen 5K race on Sunday morning, June 5. But you don’t have to be a Blue Hen alum to run this basic out-and-back race, which starts on UD’s Laird (north) Campus and takes in a lot of Creek Road along the way.
