October is bustling with a variety of races (see more upcoming). Some of our Creek Road Runners are taking full advantage.
CRR Andrew Weber won the second annual Run the Rock 5K last weekend, in a blistering 17:54, finishing more than two minutes ahead of the second-place finisher.
In the Run Inspired 10K at Winterthur, CRR Bill Rose placed 22nd overall out of 1,398 finishers and bested 87 others in his age group (50-59) in 43:10. CRR Dan Weile, who ran a 44:21, placed 29th overall and 6th out of 105 in his age group (40-49). The weekend before last, Rose placed second overall out of 97 runners in the hilly Paradocx Vineyard Run Through the Grapes in 21:48.
In the Smith-McMillan 5K last weekend, CRR Bruce Weber finished fourth overall out of 185 participants, winning his age group (50-59) in 19:16.
Two weekends ago in the inaugural Deer Park Goes Pink 5K, CRR Diane Kukich won her age group (60-69) and placed 48th overall out of 344 participants in 24:59.
Well done, each of you!
