RCGC Urban Cross Country Series Race #2 Recap
The 2014 Urban Cross Country Series Race #2 was this past Thursday July 17 at Lower Millcrest Park in Norwood. About 45 runners plus showed up to race on the 3.1 mile course in sunny and relatively cool conditions due to the Polar Vortex. After the first week, RCGC Urban Race Director Michael Guest made a few improvements and updates to the course by eliminating the wasp nests and mowing the path so runners would stay on the course and run faster times. NKU Runner Brady Holmer was the top male finisher with a new course record of 16:59 followed by John Murdock who ran a 17:42 followed by Mason Moore who ran a 17:44. Taryn Surtees showed up a few minutes before the start and was the top female finisher with a course record of 20:11 followed by Karen Berndt with a 21:22 and Kamaria Walton who ran a 22:31(View results). Join us next Thursday July 24 at Lower Millcrest Park in Norwood for the third race in the RCGC Urban Cross Country Series.
