GRP's Akeo Maifeld-Carucci Wins American Birkebeiner; Martin and Patterson at World Championships

It was a big weekend for the Green Racing Project skiers, as Akeo Maifeld-Carucci won his first American Birkebeiner (know colloquially as the Birkie). It also marked the first time that a Green Racing Project athlete has won the Birkie, a 52k freestyle marathon through the woods of Northern Wisconsin. The race has the largest field in North America, and certainly the most prestigious marathon on the continent every year. Meanwhile, on the other side of the world Caitlin Patterson and Adam Martin made their World Championship debuts in Seefeld, Austria.

American Birkie

This year, skiers faced slow conditions and new snow on the 52k trek from Cable to Hayward, Wisconsin. Maifeld-Carucci was skiing in the main pack of approximately 10 skiers until the "halfway" point at OO, with 28k ...

CNSC Podiums at Final Eastern Cup

Last weekend wrapped up the 2018-2019 Eastern Cup Series with the Dublin Double at the Dublin School in Dublin, NH on Saturday and a classic race at the Holderness School in Plymouth, NH on Sunday. These races mark the culmination of the four weekend Eastern Cup series as well as the naming of the New England Junior National team, which will head to Alaska in early March.

Dublin was a new venue for the Eastern Cup and they did a great job hosting a jam-packed day of racing despite some limited snow to work with. Athletes got two chances to toe the line, with a 1.5k skate race in the morning followed by 3k of skating in the afternoon. 

Men’s 1.5k skate:

12. Finn Sweet (6th U18)

13. Griffin Wright (7th U18)

19. Jack Young (11th U18)

20. Caleb Streinz (6th U20)

What a spectacular February day! We couldn't have asked for better weather to spend an afternoon snowshoe running, fat tire biking, and cross country skiing all over our ski and singletrack trail networks. Congrats to all of our winter triathlon participants for conquering a challenging 17k of trail and to our snowshoe racers for running fast in soft snow. And here's to the man himself, Keith Woodward, for not only designing, packing, and marking all of the courses but for also competing in the event!

GRP Intern Wanted for Summer '19

The Craftsbury Green Racing Project (GRP) is looking for a summer intern to aid and facilitate the coaching staff of the GRP and the GRP U23 sculling programs.

The Craftsbury Outdoor Center offers the endurance sports of rowing, running, Nordic skiing, and biathlon, with a specialty in sustainability. We are looking for a motivated, organized, and enthusiastic intern to work side-by-side with our GRP coaches this summer, 2019. Ideal for an experienced sculler, this position will help you expand your rowing knowledge and coaching skills as you serve a vibrant, competitive, and unique sculling community.

TNR #8 Results: Team Sprint

Yesterday's Tuesday Night Race took on the team sprint format, with 68 racers (34 teams) attacking a fun, twisty course entirely in the upper and lower stadiums. Each team completed six laps total, navigating the relay exchange zone to tag off between each leg. It was controlled chaos of the best kind, and exciting for both racers and spectators alike! Big thanks to Keith Woodward for setting up an excellent course.

Our ambitious plans to get lap times for each competitor were thwarted by the size of the field, but we have overall results for the race here. The duo of Eric Remick and Maxfield English took first place, while Ben Taska and Matt Moody finished second, and Adrian Owens/Stephen Wright secured third. The top three all-female teams were Hannah Dreissigacker/Jenny McIlvane, ...
