Running Director Departure

26 Dec 2017 @12:55

We are sad to announce that Carole Hakstian will be stepping down from the leadership of our Craftsbury Running Camps. Carole joined us two years ago, and has contributed great energy, commitment, vision and detail to the job of coordinating the camps. While she has enjoyed the challenge, she has made the decision to step down in order to pursue full-time advocacy work to promote energy efficiency. We respect her decision, though we are sad to see her go. We wish her many happy adventures

We are starting the process of seeking a new Running Director for Craftsbury, and we are lucky to have some experienced local Running Camp coaches to help during the transition. We will post a Job Description soon.

Sargent Podiums at St. Ulrich OPA Cup

18 Dec 2017 @13:35

GRP skier Ida Sargent found success at the St. Ulrich OPA Cup this weekend, landing on the podium in two out of the three races she started. The World Cup traveled to Toblach, Italy and featured two distance races, so many of the US sprinters took the opportunity for a break from the World Cup and raced on the OPA Cup instead.

On Friday, Sargent raced a freestyle sprint. She qualified in 6th, and advanced to the A Final, where she made the podium in 3rd. Fellow American Sophie Caldwell won the A Final, and Russian skier Natalia Matveeva was 2nd. The following day, the women raced a 5k classic individual start,and Sargent again placed 3rd, 18 seconds out. Finally, on Sunday she raced a 10k freestyle mass start and took 5th place, just over 15 seconds from the win.

Sargent will now take a ...

The CNSC juniors got their racing legs under them for the first time this season at the Craftsbury Opener. As we often do at early season racers, competitors skied multiple loops on manmade snow, made possible only because of the tireless efforts of the grooming crew. Women and U16 and under men did five loops for 5.5k and U18 and older men did seven loops for 7.7k.

In the men’s 5.5k race, Craftsbury had a very strong presence at the front of the field. Trey Jones was 2nd, Bjorn Westervelt was 3rd, Jack Young was 4th, and Greyson Davis was 5th. Next, Mikail Tipton was 6th, Charlie Krebs was 12th, and Daymien Ide was 13th. In the 7.7k race, Griffin Wright was 9th and Henry Hoffert was 26th, amongst a strong collegian dominated field.

We kicked off the 2017-2018 ski season with a low-key 5.5k/7.7k freestyle race on the snowmaking loop. College and club teams who have been at the Center this Thanksgiving week got an interval-start race effort under their belts before the season truly begins, and many local and regional skiers made the trip for early season snow.

Silje Wilson (UNH) took top honors in the womens' 5.5k, followed by Craftsbury's own Callie Young in second and Tegan Thorley (Harvard) in third.

In the mens' 5.5k, Mansfield Nordic Club's Aidan Burt took the win, Craftsbury U14 Trey Jones notched a second-place finish, and teammate Bjorn Westervelt claimed third place.

GRP Biathletes Compete at Canadian National Team Trials

8 Nov 2017 @13:36

This past week GRP biathletes raced in the Canadian National Team Trials in Canmore, Alberta.

Inquiring minds want to know- when is this year's ski swap going to be?! Alas, not this year! We will likely host one next year.

GRP Skiers and Craftsbury Juniors Compete at the NENSA Invitational Rollerski Race

6 Nov 2017 @19:02

This past weekend the GRP skiers and Craftsbury juniors competed in the NENSA Invitational Rollerski Race at the Trapp Family Lodge along with many other skiers from throughout New England. This classic rollerski race started in the Nebraska Valley, climbed Barrows Road, and then wound its way up Trapp Hill Road where it finished in front of the Trapp’s Outdoor Center.

Sculling Fall Speed Order Results and upcoming VO2 Max testing

6 Nov 2017 @7:21

This past weekend, the GRP sculling team wrapped up their fall season with a two-day Fall Speed Order in Saratoga Springs, NY. Typically, the East Coast Fall Speed Order is held in Princeton, NJ at the National Team Training Center; however, due to the unusually late occurrence of the 2017 Senior World Rowing Championships, which took place in September, USRowing did not host an official Fall Speed Order. 

The coaches and athletes of USRA’s Training Center Partner organizations took initiative to meet the desire for an on-the-water, final test of speed in singles. Their collective commitment to supporting the event, and Eric "Cat" Catalano’s  colossal efforts resulted in the execution of a professional and well-organized FSO that would have otherwise not taken place.

Scullers race Schuylkill, take 1st and 3rd in US Lotman Challenge, prep for Fall Speed Order

1 Nov 2017 @18:35

Green Racing Project scullers: Jenifer Forbes, John Graves, Nathan Lado, and Wes Vear, competed this past Saturday, October 28, in the 47th Annual Head of the Schuylkill Regatta (HOSR). All GRPers competed in the Redgrave Challenge Championship Single event; additionally, Graves, Lado, and Vear duked it out for the opportunity to be one of the three winners of the first-ever US Lotman Challenge.  

HOSR is a 2.5 mile head race in Philadelphia, PA. If you read last week’s post re: Head of the Charles, you would know that its course was technical in nature with many sharp turns. This week, racers had to navigate through only four bridges and three turns, which were slightly less curvy and technical than the Charles but proved challenging in their own right. GRP athletes sculled into a ...

Seasonal Trail Use Reminder

28 Oct 2017 @10:38

With trapping and turkey season in full swing and deer season around the corner, we’d like to remind our community and members about our seasonal trail use policy. Unless a trail is on the map as part of our summer trail network, it is closed. The Outdoor Center maintains agreements with private landowners to use certain corridors of their land in the winter as ski and snowshoe trails, but outside the snowy season, there is no public trail use on those lands.

Fall and winter brings hunting and trapping season to Vermont. We urge all members and guests to be alert while using our summer trail network and to wear bright, high-vis colors while running, biking and walking on Center land through the end of big game season.

Another aspect of trail safety during this time of year is ...

Rowers compete at 53rd HOCR and prep for Schuylkill

24 Oct 2017 @18:51

This past weekend 13 COC affiliated athletes competed in The 53rd Annual Head of the Charles Regatta. The athletes enjoyed great weather with temperatures reaching the mid-seventies and manageable winds for the majority of the weekend. 

The Head of the Charles is a 4800 meter race in Boston, MA that requires athletes to safely travel under six bridges, make three turns to port, and two turns to starboard. Racers must balance their hardest rowing piece against steering the fastest course in order to perform well. Collisions with other crews, skipping buoys, going through the incorrect arches, and violating the traffic pattern all result in time penalties; it's incumbent upon the athletes to know the course well.

USBA Senior Rollerski Trials

23 Oct 2017 @14:24

Six GRP biathletes competed at the USBA Senior Rollerski Trials. These two races, combined with the two August trials races, were used to select athletes for a pre-season USBA camp in Canmore, Alberta. From that camp, the final U.S. team will be selected for the December World Cup. Unfortunately, Susan Dunklee had to sit out the races due to illness, but luckily she and Clare Egan are pre-qualified for the camp. 

In the first sprint race, Emily Dreissigacker took top honors for the women with only one standing miss. She was closely followed by Craftsbury summer training partner Kelsey Dickenson in second. Rounding out the podium for a Craftsbury sweep was Clare Egan in third. Hallie Grossman finished 10th. On the men’s side, Alex Howe had the top GRP result in 7th. Just behind him ...

This past week the Green Racing Project had five former athletes representing the United States down in Sarasota, Florida at the World Rowing Championships. Held for the first time in the US in 25 years, we had some fantastic racing from our former GRP members.

John Graves and Ben Davison raced in the Men's Double Sculls after having prepared for the World Championships at Craftsbury this summer, coached by former GRP athlete Peter Graves. The double finished third in their heat with a time of 6:16, only a second and a half off of first place which sent them to the repechage. After winning their rep and advancing to the A/B Semifinal, they then moved to the B final where they finished second, placing 8th overall.

GRP Ski Team Opens the 2017 Season at New Zealand Winter Games

9 Sep 2017 @21:47

Most years the Green Racing Project ski team starts their winter race season at a more traditional time, right before or after Thanksgiving, when snow first hits the Northern Hemisphere. However, this year the GRP traveled south in late August to train in New Zealand at the Snow Farm. Because New Zealand is at the end of their winter, they have plenty of snow this time of year. The Snow Farm hosted a three race series over the weekend, and the six GRP skiers at the camp competed along with other American skiers, Koreans, Japanese, and Australians.

Thursday brought a 5/10k individual start freestyle. The men went first, racing four times around a tough 2.5k course that managed to hit all the major climbs at the Snow Farm. Ben Lustgarten had a great race, winning the men’s 10k by ...

GRP's Patterson 23rd at World Mountain Running Championships

31 Jul 2017 @13:57

Sure, most skiers prefer to stick to the basics- train in the summer and race in the winter. However, some like to mix things up a bit and get in their running legs under them during the warmer months. Earlier this summer GRP skier Caitlin Patterson hopped in the US Mountain Running Championships at Cranmore, NH, and finished 4th, which was enough to qualify her for World Championships in July. She also raced the Whiteface Skyrace, taking first place in the senior women's category.

On July 30, she competed along with three other US women at World Mountain Running Championships in Premana, Italy. The senior women ran two laps of a 6.5k course, for 13k total. Caitlin placed 23rd with a time of 1:12:14. Perhaps most impressive is the fact that going in to the competition, she was ranked ...

GRP's Patterson Takes on Italian Vertical Kilometer

25 Jul 2017 @11:50

Earlier this summer, GRP athlete Caitlin Patterson qualified for World Mountain Running Championships via a successful finish at the US Mountain Running Championships in Cranmore, NH. This past weekend, she traveled over to Italy to start prepping for the race, which will be on Sunday, July 30th.

Part of her prep included jumping into the Dolomites Skyrace Vertical Kilometer (VK), on July 21st in Canazei, Italy. A vertical kilometer is exactly what it sounds like, an uphill running race that gains 1000m of elevation. Even with jetlag, adjusting to altitude, and starting in a non-seeded wave, Patterson was able to finish 14th in the women's VK with a time of 45:41.

She will now travel and train in Italy until the 30th, where she'll compete alongside international racers and 3 other US ...

Craftsbury Juniors Ellis and Sweet at Mountain Bike Nationals

25 Jul 2017 @11:36

Two Craftsbury juniors made the trip to Snowshoe, West Virginia over the weekend to compete in the 2017 USA Mountain Bike Nationals. After standout results at the Julbo Eastern Grind a week ago, Finn Sweet and Avery Ellis decided to make the trip down south to see how they would stack up nationally.

Finn competed in the Junior Men 15-16 Cat 1/2 division. He placed 30th out of 73 in the cross country race, which had one of the largest field sizes on the day.

Avery raced the next day in the U23 Women's division, and had an awesome 8th place finish in the cross country race. Avery is a long time Craftsbury junior, and will join the Middlebury panthers next year as a freshman on the nordic team.

Congrats to both Avery and Finn!

Last weekend, GRP athlete Caitlin Patterson and U23 summer athlete Kelsey Dickinson travelled to Lake Placid, New York to compete in the Whiteface Vertical K and Sky Races.

With only an afternoon to recover, the duo hit the slopes again on Sunday morning for perhaps the main event of the weekend: the 5.4 mile, 8000 feet of vertical gain Sky Race. The race involved two laps up and down a Whiteface ski trail and one flat loop in the middle. Caitlin was victorious in this event with a time of 3:18 and Kelsey was 3rd in 3:52.

2 Jul 2017 @15:57

While the SBTC athletes were wrapping up U23 Trials racing in Princeton, John Graves was busy flying the GRP flag at the Henley Royal Regatta in England in the initial heats of the Diamond Challenge Sculls Cup. Racing as Craftsbury Sculling Center, John defeated M.P. O’Leary of Oxford. In the second round on Friday, John beat J.A. Kirkwood of Leander by 2 ¾ lengths and won his semifinal yesterday over J.B. Stimpson of Nottingham by 3 lengths, setting up a match with M.R.G. Dunham of Waiariki Rowing Club (New Zealand) at 11:20 today.

The row2k website billed the matchup as “a streetfight” and they were not far from the mark with the prediction: John got out to an early lead of a little over a length by the Barrier, which is a little over two minutes into the race in singles.  He ...

GRP Rowers McAdam, McIlvane, and Vear at Spring Speed Order

1 May 2017 @11:06

On April 18-21, three Green Racing Project rowers started their season off at the Spring Speed Order in Mercer Lake, NJ. As the first race of the 2017 rowing season, this year the Speed Order had no bearings towards World Cup or World Championships qualification later in the year, but was a good opportunity for the rowers to get in their first race efforts after a long winter of training and six weeks of on-water time in Sarasota, Florida.

Hugh McAdam had the top GRP result of the week as the winner of the men’s lightweight single. McAdam took second in the time trial on Tuesday (the 18th), but went on to win his semifinal on Thursday. In Friday’s final he was behind off the start and chased down the Riverside sculler ahead of him to win by a 2 second margin. It’s a promising ...

Summer TNR Starts May 30

5 Apr 2017 @10:58

2.TrailRace5.4.16

The first race of the series will be held on May 30 and we will once again rotate between two different five-kilometer courses at the Outdoor Center, with a couple of jaunts up the road to Hosmer Point (HP). Bikers and runners alternate courses every week, with bikers contesting one course and runners the other to prevent any lapping. Both courses incorporate some of the old-school singletrack as well as the new flowy singletrack. 

Once again we will be recording points for the season total, but we've changed the scoring a bit. Women and men will be scored separately this year; and we're going to a system that awards points based on time rather than on finish position - click here for full scoring details. At our last race on August 22nd, we will celebrate the series with a ...

21 Mar 2017 @9:57

The 2016-2017 FIS Cross Country World Cup season came to a close this past weekend with a 3-day mini tour up in Quebec City. 5 skiers, the most ever for the GRP, represented the USA as part of a 27-person US team contingent. The US and Canada had extra Nation's Group start spots for the end of season races because FIS moved the races from Tyumen, Russia, to Quebec. Therefore the field was heavy on North Americans, but also featured the top European skiers competing for overall spots. 

Freestyle Sprint

Friday kicked off with a 1.5k freestyle sprint on the Plains of Abraham, right next to the Parliament building in Quebec City. In the women's race, Ida Sargent led the way for the GRP, finishing 36th in qualification, followed by Kaitlynn Miller in 50th, Caitlin Patterson in 53rd, and Liz ...
