Coming off an impressive performance in the Delaware Marathon relay earlier in the spring, Creek Road Runners in, shall we say, the “graying” age groups are still doing well in local races.
In the RED Run 5K in Wilmington on June 16, 57-year-old CRR Bruce Weber turned in another mid-19s race with a 19:28 in winning the 50-59 age group. Weber finished 4th overall out of 265 runners.
In the XTERRA Big Elk Trail Run 10K, 59-year-old CRR Bill Rose placed 3rd overall out of 66 runners, clocking a 46:49. This was a super time for a trail race, but then Rose has had plenty of practice at the Fair Hill Natural Resources Management Area, where the race was held, albeit in much colder weather.
