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

Last Updated: 01.Oct.2018

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 event. He placed 19th overall and won his age group. 

Congrats to all on a great weekend of racing! See results from the Rockfest here and the VT50 here.
