Summer Series Updates!!!

Attendance at the Summer Series continues to be strong- even in the heat we've had lately.

Many thanks to the Highland City Striders and Central Mass Striders for attending our Whitney 5K race in Hudson... 54 runners in a 98 degree night!!!

Our Ron and Tom Boone 10K had to be re-routed and shortened, when an accident on Clark St closed the road 10 minutes before the start of the race.

Results have been posted for Whitney 5K, Boone 4 Miler, and even the Phillipston Fire 5.5 Mile race held back in June

Pictures have been posted in Photos for 2010 Mt Washington, and the Boone race in Gardner.

NMC Mt Washington Wrap-Up

The 50th Annual Mt Washington Road Race was held this past Saturday June 19th- on an extremely hot sunny day. The day was one of those few that you can see clear skies the entire way.

As a club- we did very well- but our 50 yr old Senior Womens Team took First Place Honors WAHOO!!! As a result of that- the top 3 Women in that division get to by-pass next years lottery. Big hands for Carolyn Finch, Deb Wallgren, and Sandy Superchi.

Big thanks- and Congrats to the volunteers- with the heat and sun- the Fluid Stations were hoppin'.
