Upton State Forest 10.5K & Half Marathon

November 11, 2018

The Upton State Forest Trail race runs through the scenic Upton State Forest (surprise!). Part of the MRA series, this is probably the least challenging of their trail races. A slightly over 6 mile loop is run once for the 10.5k and twice for the half marathon. This year the race kicked off with Eric Jacobsen’s impression of Steve Galloway singing the National Anthem. If you weren’t there you missed out! The weather was beautiful for a fall trail run and great for a November day — This year was a beautiful 34 degree day with clear skies. The soup afterward was a great way to warm up!

Grand Prix points determined by age-grading-derived WAVA% value, which equates various distances efforts. PLEASE CHECK YOUR GP POINTS for accuracy.

658 Tot

– POINTS for ONLY ONE GP RACE per MONTH are counted towards your total; if you run a marathon, half-m, or ultra, then the points for any one of those are to be used IN PLACE of that month’s GP race points – unless that race’s pts are higher.
– Age-graded time is done for the exact year (with 2 decimal positions) of racer’s age, rather than by the 10-year age division the runner is in, calculated on WMA website, choose correct distance (e.g., “5 mile road” if a road, not track, race); fill in other appropriate fields, separating hours, minutes and seconds by colons; Ages are calculated to one one-hundredth because there is often such a closeness in age-graded times that a finer age-graded computation than 2-digit ages is more accurate. Plus, you get a faster age-graded time this way!

Notes: John Joyce was faster than last year here by 55 seconds, Bob Cargill by 28 seconds, Darlene Dearden was 6th of 90 in her age group. Others faster too, despite the wind. Watch this page.

Natick’s 9th Annual Jingle Bell Run

Sunday, December 2, 2018, 10 a.m., Brown School, Natick; flat course through neighborhood, only off-and-on faint drizzle, 40-45 degrees, no wind, slightly less than 2 mi – and race officials have since declared that they made the course short – to 1.85 miles – because of that long, road-wide puddle at the original start. So essentially it was a 3K!  I’ve adjusted the paces accordingly (it’s been a 30-50 seconds difference for everyone); long, generous raffle, age group awards 1 deep (mug with kisses)

Tough Ten 10-Miler

November 25, 2018, 9 a.m., start and finish in a Marlboro CC parking lot across road from where we had our banquet 6 years ago. VERY hilly in stretches, a steep one for most of Mile 1, 2-3 in miles 4-5, and especially the “super longie” from Mile 7.5 to Mile 8.9? Water stops, mile splits called out for first few miles (incl 5K) and corner guides aplenty. Weather: only at times a very faint drizzle, 45 or so degrees, no wind. Postrace refreshments: choc chip cookies, bananas, Clif bars, GU Gels, clementines. Race put on by Highland City Striders – low key, but very well organized.
