Black River Beatdown

Last Updated: 21.Jul.2012

The 3rd annual Black River Beatdown took place under beautiful conditions this morning. In the first year the event has had a bike option, Matt Moody was the sole representative of the two-wheeled set. He rode a predominantly singletrack lap course in 1:19:12 for the win.

On the big loop, the runners were led home by Gordon Vermeer in 55:59. Gordon bested his teammates Pat O'Brien and Dylan McGuffin by only 4 and 6 seconds. However, as host athletes none of the top three were eligible to win the Salomon Trail Runners. 4th placed Taylor Washburn will go home with the booty with his 56:20.

For the women, Ida Sargent was seventh overall in 1:01:51 to take the win. GRPer Amy Glen was second, and 15 year old Emma Porrazzo of Greensboro grabbed the last spot on the podium - and the Salomon Trail shoes for the first non-GRP runner.

Congratulations to one and all and big thanks for coming out! Full results will be posted by our webmaster here, so keep checking back, or stop by the office or Dining Hall where printed copies reside.

Thanks again and enjoy the beautiful day!
