Vermont City Marathon

I see at least 18 club members in the marathon this past weekend. Congratulations everyone!  The rain delay certainly made for a extra challenge but it didn’t stop the CVR Women’s Open and Women’s Masters teams!  CVR swept the women’s team competition with first place in both.  Scoring for the Women’s Open team was Megan Valentine,Dylan Broderick and Sandy Colvin.  The winning Master’s team consisted of Megan, Sandy and Meg Allison. These wins are even more impressive since the marathon was the RRCA National Championship and there was tough competition from other New England teams.  The CVR Men’ s Teams did well but couldn’t beat GMAA in either division.  Both our teams settled for second place.  Scoring for the Men were George Aitken(3:00:25 marathon debut) and Kari Bradley.  The Masters had Kari plusChris Andresen and Phil Krajewski. Phil’s time of 3:40:06 at age 74 translates to about 2:33 on an age graded basis, which is good for 11th male overall (age graded).  Here is a link to results.
