Results: Autumn Evening XC Race #1

Last Updated: 03.Sep.2019

Our Autumn Evening XC Race series has begun! Runners set out tonight to test their cross country legs on the 5k course for this weekend's upcoming Craftsbury XC Invitational & Citizens Race. We had both unattached runners and teams in the field tonight. Four teams took to the line as part of our team scoring event. How does it work? Runners team up in groups of 3-6, with the top three from each team scoring for the team. The overall finishing positions of these top three runners are added together for the team score, with the lowest score winning. This week the battle between Team "Sterling" and Team "Ice Cream Butt" was fierce. Sterling came away with the win (and trophy!) this round, besting the field with an impressively low team score of 10 over the 14 of "Ice Cream Butt". Next was "Team Strong" with 37 points, and next Team "Master Blasters" not far behind with 53. Be sure to follow these fun rivalries throughout season! It's not too late to join in the team or individual event - come battle for XC glory and the team trophy next week! Tuesday at 5:30pm at the Center. Registration from 4:55-5:25 at the Activity Center.
