Winter Series 4 – The Penultimate Contest

by Christine Bishop

On January 29, a mild winter day, the 4th Winter Series race had 286 runners and NO snow.

As usual, there were three different races with surprisingly the 10K having significantly more runners than the 5.5K.  To honor those who ran the 30K, the entire results will be listed. The Winter Series race was directed by John Parisella with moral support from Mat Nark.

As usual, after runners were finished, a recuperative bowl of soup donated by Bountiful Bread and served by Maureen Cox awaited them along with other healthy goodies to eat. In addition, overall and age group winners were given coupons for a free loaf of bread of their choice at, you guessed it, Bountiful Bread.

The ultimate Winter Series Race will be on February 12, the same day as the Superbowl but fortunately much earlier. It will be directed by dynamic Patrick Lynskey. The race has three distances with the 10 Miler being an HMRRC Grand Prix event. The other 2 distances are 5.5K and 20 Miles! With distances like this, the tasty soup will be devoured immediately.  As for the weather, the leading weather stations predicted no snow, blizzards, bomb tornedoes, or polar vortices just cloudy skies with temperatures in the mid 30s.
