2019 Lone Gull 10K
Weather: 75 and Sunny
The last day of summer was a perfect beach day for CRC! Seventeen CRCers made their way to Good Harbor Beach in Gloucester for the 10K edition of the USATF-NE Grand Prix. Course records and personal records were shattered by some; ocean views and warm breezes were enjoyed by all.
The race showcased the depth of the men’s team, with the top five runners all averaging 6-minute/mile pace or better. Kyle Coffee, the first CRC finisher, had a 30 second PR and broke 34 minutes for the first time. Kyle was closely followed by Leif Anderson, who had a post-30 PR. Triathlete Charles-Henri Hydrio resisted the urge to start the day off with an ocean swim, and turned out a PR. While Dominic Harkness, a leading contender for most improved runner, bested his 10K time by over 11 minutes.
At the start line most of the women said they were just going treat the race as a tempo run. But the lady CRCer’s killed it! With her hamstring feeling better than expected, Laura Santoski lead the women to a 12th place finish. Ariel Schwartz channeled her nervousness about the impending Boston Marathon cutoff announcement into a 10K PR (she made the cut!).
Congratulations to all who ran! And a big thank you to our fans, including one all the way from California.
