Caldwell and Martin Podium at Newburyport Half Marathon

Last Updated: 22.Oct.2018

Last weekend, Running Director Heidi Caldwell and GRP skier Adam Martin travelled to Newburyport, Massachusetts for the Newburyport Half Marathon. This race, held on Massachusetts’s North Shore, is relatively flat and fast and annually draws a very competitive field. Undeterred by the competition, Heidi and Adam both delivered noteworthy performances. Adam finished 2nd, in a blistering time of 1:06:18 (roughly a 5:05 minute mile) only two seconds behind 1st place Tadesse Yae Dabi. The Newburyport Daily News reported that Dabi is an “Ethiopian distance star” that has “competed all over the world.” Heidi was 6th overall and won the women’s race by a convincing seven minutes, in a time of 1:13:43 (about a 5:35 mile time). This time is nearly two minutes faster than her half marathon performance from earlier this month! Adam’s focus will now shift back to skiing, while Heidi’s next race is the California International Marathon in Sacramento on December 2nd. 

Congratulations to these two for highlighting Craftsbury’s running prowess. Full results from the race can be found here and stay tuned for an update on Heidi’s December marathon.
