26 CRC took to a hot and sunny Hormel Track Saturday morning to go up against the Boston area running clubs in the 26×1 Mile Relay. Like last year, there was some tough competition and we finished very solidly in 5th place; moving up in the rankings by one place and beating our 2017 time by 24 seconds.

Complete results and my own roster results.
Thank you everyone for participating. Special thank you to our volunteer timers!  And sorry to those of you who were unable to participate this year because we could only have one team. SRR tried out a timing method (chips attached to batons) this year to possibly allow for more teams next year; it seems to have gone well. Let’s get two CRC teams next year!
