GRP and CNSC at Race to the Top of Vermont
Last Updated: 28.Aug.2019
On Sunday, August 25, a large group of Green Racing Project and CNSC athletes took on the Race to the Top of Vermont in Stowe, VT. The 4.3 mile course starts at the bottom of the gondola and winds up the Toll Road, ending just below the summit of Mt. Mansfield. A grueling uphill running race with over 2,500 ft of elevation gain, the race nearly always makes a yearly appearance in the training plan for the Green Racing Project!
In the men's race, GRP skier Adam Martin broke the tape for 1st place overall in a time of 34:02. Braden Becker placed 3rd, followed by Raleigh Goessling in 4th, and Akeo Maifeld-Carucci in 5th. CNSC skier and biathlete Bjorn Westervelt took 14th overall for men, and 1st in the 15-19 age category. GRP alum Ethan Dreissigacker was 23rd for men, but won the Clydesdale category by a large margin! GRP rower Nathan Lado raced as well, finishing 27th for men.
On the women's side, GRP skier Caitlin Patterson was the first female to the top in a time of 41:24. U23 athlete Evelina Sutro took 2nd for women, followed by Kaitlynn Miller in 4th, Liz Guiney in 5th, Hallie Grossman 6th, Alexandra Lawson 9th, and Johanna Taliharm 15th.
