Spring sprung up like it always does in early April for the runners of Boardwalk RC. The snow melts on our beloved boardwalk, and out come our green and gold singlets. It's time to race!
The 28th Annual Beaches Spring Sprint took place on Saturday, April 11th.
Team Semes and team Duff were assembled a week before, after a Friday tempo run. All runners were seeded and assigned to one of the captains teams.
In the end it was team Duff that hoisted the trophy. They won by the slimmest of margins. Amazingly, it was 8 seconds that separated these two teams after each teams top 9 runners had their times added together.
Highlights: Boardwalk RC had 20 runners at the event. 8 runners went faster then 20 minutes. The top time was posted by Dave Corlett 17:32. Two of our 10 year olds ran under 20 minutes, Charlie Mills 19:36 and Charlie Pilz 19:48. Two of the young runners ran both the 5k and the 2k, they finished 3rd (Dominic) and 7th (Charlie M.).
