GRP Scullers Race Green Mountain Head: Win syrup, apples, and cider

GRP scullers raced at Green Mountain Head this weekend for what are arguably the best prizes in all of fall head racing. For the last 37 years, Putney Rowing Club has hosted the regatta on their small stretch of the Connecticut River, and have provided single and double scullers of all ages a truly unique race experience.

Volunteers usher racers that are both towing trailers and car-topping their boats over mounds of dirt and remainders of prickly corn stalks.

Heidi Caldwell wins and sets new course record at Rockfest Half Marathon

Running camp director Heidi Caldwell certainly left an indelible mark on Sunday's Smuttynose Rockfest Half Marathon in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire. Impressive feat number one was setting a new women’s course record in 1:15:15. And if that wasn't quite enough, impressive feat number two was winning the race overall! In fact, the top two finishers were women. Running camp coach Sam Davis also raced, finishing in just over two hours. The Rockfest Half Marathon draws a large and competitive field to coastal New Hampshire, with more than 4,000 participants toeing the line, as well an additional 1,700 in the 5k race. 

In other news, another running camp coach Jack Pilla also put on his racing shoes this weekend. He did the VT50 in the Brownsville area, where he competed in the 50 mile ...
