I guess you know you’ve hit “the big time” when you’re quoted in the New York Times in an article related to running. Well, that just happened recently to one of our own in the NYT’s July 10 issue. Even though the article was about an elite runner named Kyle Merber, CRR Sam Parsons, a fellow running professional, weighed in on how Merber has helped many running communities, like the Boulder, Colo.–based Tinman Elite club for which Parsons runs.
With this post, our very own world-class runner, who grew up in Newark, Del., is officially recognized as a Creek Road Runner.
CRR Sam Parsons, shown here giving his genuine thumbs-up to our association while wearing the classic CRR sweatshirt, is a professional runner with Colorado-based Tinman Elite who has been a force to be reckoned with on the track since his high school days at The Tatnall School. In 2018, he became the first Delaware native to break the coveted 4-minute mark in the mile run.
Past posts have highlighted his rise to the international stage.
Parsons is the son of Newark residents CRR George Parsons and CRR Christina Parsons.
