Creek Road Runners always show up for and show well in the Delaware Marathon relay. Last weekend’s race was no exception. Led by CRR Bill Rose, who ran a blazing fast 43:46 initial 6.55-mile leg, the 2015 edition of the Creek Road Runners team finished 8th overall out of 132 teams in the Refuel with Chocolate Milk 4 Person Relay. This was also good for a coed senior division win. The team’s total time was 3:11:47.
Leg two was carried by CRR Christina Parsons (52:48), who three weeks earlier had run a PR in the Boston Marathon. A last-minute substitute for an injured CRR Mark Deshon, triathlete and CRR Steve Tague turned in a 49:16. Back in racing form again, CRR Bill Farquhar brought it all home with a strong 45:55.
In the half-marathon, CRR Natalie Rosenberg finished 68th overall (out of 1,159) in 1:41:50, placing 4th in her age group (25-29). CRR Dave Schultz just squeaked under two hours with a 1:59:37. Wife CRR Christine Schultz came in a few minutes later at 2:05:52.
Congratulations to all!
