The weather held out for the 9th GMAA Equinox Trail Race on Sunday, June 16. Trail conditions were “soft”, but very manageable. See the Results page for details on the 5K and 10K results.
A great turnout of 85 runners were treated to near perfect racing conditions for the Pump It Up! 5-Miler this year – mostly cloudy and damp with temps in the 40s and light wind on soft dirt roads with just a bit of mud. You’ll find the results posted here.
Runners and volunteers braved cold and rainy conditions with gusty winds at times to bring spirit, energy, and strong performances to the course. Adam Bulakowski led runners along the course by bicycle, and Laura Ryan generously brought an armload of baked goods for chilled-to-the-bone racers to refuel. You’ll find the results here.
If you’re looking for a group run on Sunday, here’s an option. We start at The Edge on 75 Eastwood Drive in South Burlington and do an easy out-and-back run on bike path. Conversational pace. Free and open to public. All abilities welcome. Myers Bagels and Gatorade provided. Gym lockers and showers available.
A snow storm on Saturday left Westford with 10 to 12 inches of heavy, wet snow but the skies cleared for race morning with bright sunshine and snow covered trees. The roads, rutted in spots but not too muddy, were better than anticipated. The general opinion from almost everyone we spoke to post-race was that it was near perfect conditions for the first race of the 2019 GMAA season! You’ll find the results here.
