2018 Summer Tuesday Night Race Series

Last week, we held our 13th and final Julbo Tuesday Night race of the 2018 summer. This weekly event has become a tradition here at the Outdoor Center, with as many as 60 racers toeing the line on any given Tuesday evening this summer. Each week, we offered three race options: 5k run, 5k bike, or 10k bike. While many racers elected to run, we’ve seen the biker turnout grow over the years! Races were held primarily at the Center, but also traveled throughout the area. We had three races at Hosmer Point, one in town on the Sterling College trails, and one on the Hazen Union Trails in Hardwick.

At the end of the season, we crowned overall male and female winners in each category. Each winner won a pair of Julbo sunglasses. Our winners were:

Women’s 5k bike: Jennifer Schoen

Jen

Men’s 5k bike: Orion Cenkl

Women’s 10k bike: Megan Jolly

The races take place rain or shine and alternate between two different courses, giving racers a range of racing opportunities throughout the summer. The races attract a wide variety of athletes, from six year olds putting a bib on to the first time, to seasoned TNR veterans, to GRP athletes using the race as a hard workout. Here are a selection of photos from the racing season. Thanks to Sheldon Miller, Heidi Caldwell, and Caitlin Patterson for capturing the races in action!

We traditionally end each TNR season with a pizza party. Big thanks to Anna Schulz for being the pizza making queen. And to Amy Schulz, Pam Jaspersohn, and Sam Messer for making beautiful and delicious salads with produce from the Hosmer Point gardens!
