A happy Tripp Shenton after finishing in Stockholm Half

University of Delaware professor and CRR Tripp Shenton, on sabbatical from in Sweden, checked in recently to let us know he’s been having some fun at some big races over there.

On September 15, he ran the Stockholm Half Marathon in 1:47:02, which placed him in the top 25% of his age group.

More recently, he competed in the Lidingöloppet 15K, which is billed as the “largest cross-country race in the world.” He said that the trails in White Clay Creek State Park were a big help in his training but that it was still a tough race. Shenton finished in 1:21:23.
