This was a very rugged course with some serious hills so we didn’t see any personal records by time but we did see a solid effort from our team.  Scott Leonard led the team placing 9th of more than 50 runners.  Dylan Marx also had a tremendous race finishing the course in 23:00 not far off from his personal best despite the slow course.  The hills got the better of some of our guys giving us a clear indicator of where we need to get stronger.  The boys will return to Pomfret to race the hosts, as well as Rectory on Saturday Oct 27th.  Hopefully with a little more work on the hills in practice we will give them a run for their money.
