Sweet and Wright named to NEG 2020

Craftsbury's Finn Sweet and Griffin Wright have been named to the 2020 National Elite Group (NEG), earning them an invitation to take part in the NEG camp in Park City this coming October.

Green Racing Project Athletes Race at World Rowing Championships

Last weekend saw the finals for the 2019 World Rowing Championships with one current Green Racing Project athlete racing as for the United States Senior National team as three former GRP athletes. Kevin Meador raced in the Men's Single Sculls as the current GRP representative at Worlds. John Graves raced in the Men's Quadruple Sculls, Erik Frid raced in the Men's Double Sculls and Andrew Reed raced in the Men's Straight Four. As some background for our non-rowing fluent audience, the year before the Olympics is always an extremely important year because Olympic qualification is on the line. No country is guaranteed entries at the Olympics so each boat class must be qualified by hitting a specific standard depending on the event. For example, the top eleven double sculls qualify their ...

Results: Autumn Evening XC Race #1

Our Autumn Evening XC Race series has begun! Runners set out tonight to test their cross country legs on the 5k course for this weekend's upcoming Craftsbury XC Invitational & Citizens Race. We had both unattached runners and teams in the field tonight. Four teams took to the line as part of our team scoring event. How does it work? Runners team up in groups of 3-6, with the top three from each team scoring for the team. The overall finishing positions of these top three runners are added together for the team score, with the lowest score winning. This week the battle between Team "Sterling" and Team "Ice Cream Butt" was fierce. Sterling came away with the win (and trophy!) this round, besting the field with an impressively low team score of 10 over the 14 of "Ice Cream Butt". Next ...

Autumn Evening XC Races

We're taking Tuesday Night Races into the Fall - cross country style! This six week series will give you the chance to relive your high school XC days, or to try cross country for the first time. In true cross country fashion, the main course for the season will be run entirely on our double-wide, grassy ski trails. The second course will be a mix of double-wides and singletrack. This is a fun, low-key community event for all ages and abilities. We hope to see you on the trails battling it out - the series begins September 3!

How it works: Team up in groups of 3-6 for the season and choose your team name. Three people from your team will need to run each week in order to earn a team score for each race. The winning team each week will get to claim the "trophy" and everlasting glory ...
