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!
