HARTFORD TRACK CLUB 8K CROSS COUNTRY CHALLENGE

Winter came early for the 73 hardy harriers that finished the 9th annual HTC XC Challenge. With temperatures in the low 20’s and a wind chill near zero, it was no surprise that the race course was in mid-winter form – very hard turf with sneaky ice patches spread throughout the route. Despite taking a tumble in the first mile, Mark Hixson had no problem with the rest of the course, cruising to the win in 28:11. On the women’s side, Beth Krasemann continued her excellent year racing in the New England trail series with a winning time of 33:03.


This is the final XC race in the 3-race Fall series and it turned out to be a very tough battle in both the open and masters divisions. The Hartford Track Club squeezed by the Mohegan Striders 26-29 in the open race (top 5 runners score by place), but it was even tighter in the masters race (top 3 runners) as both clubs compiled 12 points, but HTC’s third runner was closer to the winner than Mohegan’s third runner to take the win.


This race could not be possible without the wonderful support of dedicated volunteers and the excellent timing service of Will Graustein. Many thanks to our highly insulated volunteer crew of HTC Prez Peter Hawley, race historian extraordinaire David Reik, race dietitian Cindy Kozak, water captain Dave Kozak (with technicians John & Collin), registration queen Kathy Schwager, and logistics coordinator Rick Buckley.
