It appears we had around 16 Turtles toe the line in the month of July…thats pretty good! As usual, if I missed your result, please let me know!

Scott Mason climbing at Big River

The Big River Half Marathon and 10k Trail Race was the finale of the South County 4th Season Trail Race Series.  This race was supposed to happen earlier in the month, but with a ton of snow still on the ground, RD Mike Galoob made the call to put the race off until the end of the month and hope all of the snow was gone….his gamble paid off and we were treated to a beautiful spring day.  With the dry conditions we were able to enjoy the amazing trails that Big River has to offer and it made for a fitting finale to a great series in which Turtles had a great showing at every race starting in December.  We came away from the series with many awards, including the Overall Male and Female Titles.  1st Place 14-18 Male, 1st place 30-39 Male and Female, 1st Place 40-49 Male and 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th & 7th 50-59 Male.  Most importantly, we took home the Overall Team Title!!  The fun part of this series was competing against the same people month after month over varying courses and having a friendly rivalry against the WTAC team.  I hope that next year we can get more teams involved, which will make for some team tactics and more fun out on the trails!

Overall Series Results

Not a race result, but related to the South County 4th Season Trail Race Series…we have formed a good relationship with the WTAC folks.  On March 3rd, the weekend the Big River Trail Race was supposed to happen, David Principe and myself met-up with some of the WTAC guys and ran a long run from sea-level to the highest point in Rhode Island, Jerimoth Hill.  Check out some stories and pics HERE!

Lastly, some self promotion…with the South County 4th Season Trail Series over…you may need another trail race to train for!  The Run with the Beaver Trail Race is 7/13/13!

CONGRATULATIONS to each and everyone one of these Ultra Turtles

 

Rhode Island 6 Hour Ultramarathon & Relay

The 2011 RI 6 Hour –  USATF-NE championship race – would be the 3rd annual race, and again we lucked out with fantastic weather.  November can be a crap-shoot but for the RI 6 Hour it has been nothing but pleasant.

Going into this year’s event we had our largest numbers yet with over 80 ultra runners and 25 teams signed up.  Unfortunately with injuries, family obligations, and just straight up no-shows there were only 59 ultra runners on the line, but all of the relay teams made the trip!

We were lucky enough to have back 2009 Champion Ben Nephew and 2010 Relay Champions acidotic RACING, and of course the 2009 Relay Champions the Tuesday Night Turtles!

On the men’s side the race played out how I had expected.  Ben Nephew wanted to run around 6:45 pace and stayed close to that (6:49s) through just under 4 hours.  He had a bit of a slow down over the last 2 hours but still managed to get in 50 miles in 5:56:59.  John Brown finished as 2nd male with 43.22 miles and Justin Kousky finished 3rd with 40.52 miles.  Our lone Turtle in the race was Jake Schieffelin, who has now completed all three RI 6 Hour races, this year he finished with 36.47 miles.

On the women’s side with the drop-out of the 2009 Champion Daniele Cherniak
the day before the race I did not know who would be battling for the top spot.  However it became pretty clear from the start that Michelle Gosselin was on a mission running mid 7 min pace  throughout the first half of the race.  In the end she finished 2nd overall in a new course record of 45.92 miles.  The 2nd place woman, Maddy Hribar, was not far behind equaling the distance of the previous course record which was held by TNT’s own Karen Benway with 43.22 miles.  3rd place female and 5th overall was Tina Dowling with 40.52 miles.

In the relay, pre-race favorites acidotic RACING stated they wanted to break the 60 mile mark and seemed ready to do so with the opening loop run in 5:10 pace by Judson Cake.  In the end they came up just short running 59.42 miles but still taking the victory by 2 laps over the Tuesday Night Turtles ‘A’ Team.  The Fuel Belt Elite Team finished in 3rd equalling the distance of TNT with 54.02 miles, but taking 12 mins longer to do it.  The Turtles had one more team in the race and they bettered their total from 2010 with 48.62 miles and a 6th place finish.

All in all the 2011 addition of the RI 6 Hour was a success.  I have had numerous emails from runners stating “I love the event” “It is my favorite ultra” and most of all “You have the best volunteers”.  So thank you volunteers, because without you nobody is happy!!

See you in 2012!
