SRS Points though week 6
SRS Results week #6
Week #5: The weather was much nicer tonight, almost cool for an early August night! We had 60 finishers and some fast times tonight! We had our first two sub 20 minute runs of the season! Nick Curelop came back and ran 19:48 edging out last weeks winner Moses Greenspan by 7 seconds (19:55). Third for the men was Edson Chipalo in 21:10. Mary Sheehan ran an almost identical time to last week in winning the women's race in 25:44! Tami Grady took the 2nd place spot in 26:20 and Carmel Kushi was third in 27:03.
Week #4: Week 4 was a scorcher! An extra water stop was added due to the extreme heat and humidity! The low turnout (47 runners) was probably due to the very warm temperatures! Those who were brave enough to come out included our overall winner Moses Greenspan in a time of 20:26, Edson Chipalo was second in 21:01 and Morey Brown third in 23:22! For the women it was Mary Sheehan in 25:45, Carmel Kushi in 26:38 and Tami Grady in 27:25. It is unlikely that anyone set a PR tonight, did I mention how hot it was!
Week #3: A little bit of a let down after the record setting crowd for the B21 Series last week, but still a very respectable 61 finishers for the race! Taking the overall win in a time of 21:01 was first SRS champion Edson Chipalo. Steady performer Morey Brown was 2nd in 22:49 and Brian Gibbons makes his first podium appearance of the series in a time of 23:14. Lauren Farry returned to take the Women's win in a time of 24:07 which was good for 4th overall! Mary Sheehan was second in 25:47 and thirds was Tami Grady in 26:42. The Women's 40-49 age group and 50-59 age group are gaining the most points by far each week, with 3 weeks gone and 5 weeks to go the points race is very tight and will likely depend on who can show up every week!

Week #3 Results
Week #2: This was the largest field in Summer Race Series History with 115 finishers! As the 8th race in the B21 series it was heavily attending by those looking to earn their Iron Runner Jackets this year! The weather was a bit cooler and the water jump dried up for this week. Nick Curelop took the overall win in a seasons best time of 20:04, second was first time SRS participant Edson Chipalo in a time of 20:51 and third place for the men was Moses Greenspan in a time of 21:07. The women's side saw a much closer race with Kim Gero earning the victory in 24:13 only 15 seconds ahead of runner up Kate Sanders. Third was wrapped up by Nicole Shepardson in 24:40.
SRS Points Week 2
Week #1: We had 65 finishers for our first race in the series, more (by 5) than we had in any of the races last season so we are off to a great start! The weather was warm but not as humid as it can get for these races. There was an added challenge of a water crossing this week! The low spot on Cascade Street had at least 2" of water in the shallowest spot and much more on the sides, no way around it! There was a second puddle just before the water stop but there was pavement in the middle to make dry passage. Luke Breslin took the win for the men and overall for the race in a time of 22:21. Second Place and first in the 50-59 men's category was Morey Brown in 23:01. Third for the men was Derek Powell in 24:50 good enough for first in the 40-49 category. In the Women's race Lauren Farry was first (third overall in the race) in a time of 24:22. Second and Third for the women was the closet podium race with Mary Sheehan (26:20) edging out Carmel Kushi (26:25) for second place. Updated point totals for the age categoreis can be found HERE
