Newton Hill X-Country 5K Series Race #1

Worcester, MA, August 9, 2002

Results courtesy of the Central Mass Striders.

For an inaugural race, this one went smoothly.

  • Beautiful running weather
  • Volunteers everywhere
  • Plenty of beverages, bananas, t-shirts, etc.

And though a few runners may have encountered some wrong turns, that happens even at the best of races.... Becky Fleming summed it up pretty well: "Where else can you get in a 5K and a long run at the same time?"
