OK, so the course along Creek Road in Newark had to be shortened a bit, race organizers say down to 9.65 miles because of some course deterioration. The Caffé Gelato Waffle Cone Ten Miler still presents a challenging but scenic course each year, a combination of creekside pavement and trails.
On Sunday, CRR Bruce Weber placed 5th overall out of 188 finishers in 1:04:14. An unusually long course for this natural sprinter, Weber won his age group (50-59) and was the second master’s finisher.
CRR Bill Rose finished just off the podium in the same age group, turning in a very respectable 1:07:47 while placing 13th.
