Who here hasn't heard about Shalane Flanagan winning the New York City Marathon in a time of 2:26:53. The first American woman victorious in exactly 40 years. Congratulations and mighty impressive!
It was great to see a few SCTA folks in Nisene this morning! With the winter months quickly approaching and the accompanying weather already here, remember to bundle up and stay safe out there!
Most importantly, don't take any prisoners!
Team Time Trials:
We had a great turnout at our first time trial event, the 10k/5k Run Series! This coming Saturday is the next, the Strawberry Time Trial (formerly known as Trafton Road). We have done these in the past and now that the signs are permanent we now have a consistent time trial course. One loop is 6 miles and two is 12, your choice.
Again, the purpose of these is to track your times from quarter to quarter to see how you're progressing, how your heart rate reacts to surges, proper warm up prior to a strong run/ride. We are really excited to present this series moving forward!
Morro Bay Triathlon:
Congratulations to everybody that raced the Morro Bay Triathlon this morning! Looks like the weather held, the smiles were out, major wattage was produced and we even had a SUP'er!
The Santa Cruz Track Club has graciously extended a discount code (check the Facebook page) for their Turkey Trot on Nov. 18! Super nice of the club and ensure you thank Diane Delucchi when you see her at the race. What better way to start off your holiday just before Thanksgiving than by running a 10k/5k here in town with some of your best friends! Get in that run before you stuff your face!
Nick Moless, SCTA hired analyst, did some data scrubbing on the results of 2016 and what he found is astonishing!
2016 5k runners - 114
2016 10k runners - 74
That's 120 podium spots for 188 runners.
So show up and claim your podium spot!!
