44 runners braved the ice-covered trails at Saratoga Spa State Park for the Saratoga Winterfest 5k trail race on Sunday, 2/4. Shaun Donegan & Peggy McKeown took 1st place for the men and women, respectively. And nature got in the last word – it started snowing right after the race wrapped up (though not enough for snowshoes!)
A huge thank you goes out to Laura Clark and her army of helpers and volunteers. I know Laura and her friends made numerous trips around the park planning out and finally marking this year’s route (some changes were necessary due to both the ice and the construction at the pool) prior to race day and the volunteers kept everything running smoothly during the race itself – it’s pretty clear that these folks are the reason this is one of the longest-running races in the series.
