2012 Bolton Summer Cross Country Series

We had a fantastic night for the final 2012 Bolton Summer Cross Country Series race. Race #7 was all out family fun. Dani and Ned Kennedy and their team of dedicated volunteers should be commended for hosting such a great event.

The Bolton Heritage Farm (aka the Rose Farm) is the perfect venue for a weekly summer running series. The little one’s 50 yard dash, the 1 mile (really .8) kid’s race, and the 2.3 (I guess) mile adult race have drawn big fields this year.

The proceeds benefit both the farm and the Bolton High School Track team. One of the best things about this race is that it is local. It is really local. We usually make the one mile commute by bicycle. Tonight was really a family affair. In addition to Debbie and our kids, my sister Stacie, my niece, and my nephew ran. My brother-in-law Steve was there for support. My parents came to watch, and so did my aunt and uncle.

Tonight was the finale and awards ceremony. It was fitting that the fastest time of the year for women was set by Ashley Gurzler, and that it was also a course record. The fastest 2012 men’s time was set by local guy, Adam Seften.

Congratulations to all of the age group winners and thank you to the sponsors who support the race. Both the Β Shenipsit Striders and Silk City Striders have had a strong presence all summer. Every town should have a series like ours where you get kids and adults outside and moving their bodies.

Livingston Family firefighters. πŸ”₯ πŸ‘©β€πŸš’ πŸš’ When @trailrunningmom β€œsmoked” the obstacle course AND added some push-ups for good measure, the Chief pulled out his business card and made a pitch for her to join the squad. I thought I was the competitive one, but she can turn anything into a competition! The kids had a blast too at family day.
