In the second longest historical race in Delaware, four Creek Road Runners collected age group awards in Newark on Saturday, November 20, either in the 10K or the 5K…
…or both in CRR Doug Repetti’s case! He did what we’ll call “the Repetti” by winning his age group in each of the two races. In the earlier 10K, he ran a 56:08, taking first in the over-70 division and finishing 54th out of 99 competitors. Then he ran the 5K in 27:19, winning the 70-74 age group.
While not winning his age group, the fastest Creek Road Runner on the day was CRR Bill Farquhar, who did manage to take a 2nd among the 50-54s, finishing 17th overall out of 409 5K finishers in a very solid 20:38. Farquhar doesn’t compete in many Newark races, so it was good to see him out there representing our crew.
CRR Diane Kukich won her 65-69 age group in the 5K with a time of 25:49. Despite winning her age group, Kukich merely took 3rd among her own family, as son Alex and daughter Christine, visiting from Baltimore, finished ahead of her. Then again, she’s several years their senior!
77-year-old running veteran CRR Doug Ridge also took home some 5K hardware, winning the 75-79 age group in 29:50.
Congratulations to all.
