Running with the Wolves

Running with the Wolves 10k race

Posted on June 16, 2011 at 9:10am

The Highland City Striders had their third annual 10 kilometer running race last night on the Assabet River Trail. This was was my first race with the Striders as a new member and I marshalled the course at Lincoln ST. We had a blast! Congratualations to Steve Chaves the Race director, and his crew for a well run and awesome race!

It was a perfect night for 6.2 miles; 66 degrees , dry and clear. There were 180 runners leaving the start at Kelleher field at 6:30 sharp . The runners entered the trail at Lincoln Street, cross Fitchburg street through the 290 tunnel, and then they turned around at 3.1 miles and returned the same route to the finish in the Stadium!

Thanks to the Marlborough Police and DPW for all of their help and assistance !

The winning time and first male was Andy Green of Liecester, MA in 35:23; and the first female was Claudia Shultz of Somerville, MA in 41:28. Great Job!

Congratulations to all trophy winners and all 175 finishers !
