Several Creek Road Runners enjoyed success over the past couple weekends of racing.
On Sunday, October 30, at Caffé Gelato’s Waffle Cone Ten Miler on Creek Road, five runners took age group awards. CRR Bruce Weber finished 9th overall among the 344 participants and placed 1st in his age group (55-59) with a 1:05:59 (that’s 6:06 per mile!). Finishing 15th overall, CRR Bill Rose placed 2nd in the 55-59s in 1:09:06. Three others captured age-group 3rd place finishes: CRR Dan Weile (40-44) in 1:13:34, CRR David Coker (45-49) in 1:17:01, and CRR Bob Opila (60-64) in 1:38:24.
At the Newark Country Club on Saturday, November 5, CRR Andrew Weber won the Rock & Roll 5K outright in a nasty fast 17:43.
