A triple scoop, please, for the Creek Road Runners. The Caffé Gelato Waffle Cone Ten Miler, which features pretty much the entire length of Creek Road and some of its off-shoot trails (well into Pennsylvania and back), featured three age-group winners on Sunday, as well as a couple notable performances.
CRR Bill Rose came in 16th overall out of 269 participants in winning the 55-59 age group in a fast 1:08:20. CRR Doug Repetti sneaked in just under the 80-minute mark to win the 60-64s in 1:19:51. On the female side, CRR Christina Parsons took first in the 50-54 age group in a very respectable 1:22:13.
Race host and Caffé Gelato owner CRR Ryan German had a busy morning, placing fourth in his age group (35-39) and 22nd overall with a 1:11:22 effort, finishing second among the Creek Road Runners. Then he helped serve the post-race brunch! CRR David Coker, the third CRR to finish, ran an impressively steady race, placing 35th overall and a solid fourth in the 45-49s in 1:14:48.
Congratulations to all Creek Road Runners who finished, especially with the difficult uphill climb at the end.
