NOR’EASTER#1, HOOT-TOOT, & COCK-A-DOODLE-SHOE RESULTS (1/18, 1/19, & 1/20)

Friday 1/18 saw the running of the inaugural Nor’Easter Night 5k at Viking Nordic in Londonderry, VT. Nine runners took to the course under the lights, with 1st place honors going to David Hamilton & Christine Natalie. Our thanks to RD Eliza & everyone else on the Nor’Easter crew. Please check out their full slate of races – Sunday 2/10 is part of our points series, and there is a possibility we may include another of their seven races in the series as well. Full results for the nighttime 5k can be found here.

Saturday 1/19 saw another running of an¬†perennial favorite, the Hoot Toot & Whistle 3.4mi snowshoe race along the Catamount Trail in Readsboro, VT. This was our largest race so far this season with 70 runners and walkers. The top two were Tim Van Orden & Jackie Wells. Special thanks to Bob and Denise Dion and their group of helpers, we couldn’t have his race without them! Full results can be found here. Pictures can be found here.

And finally, Sunday 1/20 saw a much-reduced field of runners at the Cock-a-Doodle-Shoe 5k&10k snowshoe races, due to a winter storm that hammered the northeast Saturday evening through Sunday afternoon. Despite the poor travel conditions 17 runners made it to the races, which saw Brian Wilson & Caitrin Chiantia finishing 1st in the 5k and Mitchell Ryan taking top honors in the 10k. RD Jeremy Drowne and his volunteers pulled off a race in very challenging conditions – deep snow and frigid temperatures. Full results can be found here.
