Breaking News!!


The weather was perfect for a cross-country race. Stanley Park in Westfield, Massachusetts, is famous for cross-country. There was a great crowd and some great times from people and puppies. Yes, there was a K9 division; and they were very happy. Chas Hodgdon took top honors for the overall, while Matt Pomeroy, 4th overall, was first in the K9 division with his happy dog, Cooper, leading the way. Apryl Sabdosa took the women's title in 5th place overall. The Western Mass Distance Project took the team title. Results for the 3rd Annual RUN STANLEY Cross-Country 5K are posted. Don't forget to check out the 2nd Annual Run and Wag 5K on 10/17.


Rain did not dampen spirits. There was an ethusiastic crowd for the 33rd Annual Highland Lake 10K. With the exception of one young gun, it was the Grand Masters that ruled the roost. John Minervino comes through with a quality run on a raw day. Everyone should deduct 3 minutes from their time today. The cold wet wind is not ideal for a personal best... Annalisa Paltauf was all smiles as she took the women's race. Results are posted.


This Saturday is the Highland Lake 10K at 9:00 AM. 10K road races have become rare. At one time, they were the most popular road race distance in America. Check out the road race calendar and you'll be hard pressed to find a 10K. The 10K distance, for me, was my final race before a marathon. After months of training and long runs, the 10K race would help get me race sharp. It's a long enough distance to work on pacing, tempo, strategy, and tactics. It's a short enoiugh distance to be fully recovered for the folloing weekend. Come run the Highland Lake 10K. This is our 33rd year on a classic, certified course. This year's race will be run in memory of Julian Nichols. Julian passed away a few weeks ago. He was an accomplished runner, teacher, coach, husband, and friend. He taught and coached for decades at Oliver Wolcot Tech in Torrington and the Gilbert School in Winsted. Julian was instrumental in the founding and organization of the Highland Lake 10K Road Race. His love of running will always be remembered.


Groomed trails. A beautiful day. Great friends. A fun race on the trails of Barbour Wood. The Norfolk Land Trust would like all of us to become more aware of the land of which they care. Come and enjoy the meadows, the forest, the hils, and trails. What better way, than to host a trail race. Course monitors were at every turn and the competition was top notch. Rocco Botto has been on a tear for the past three years. Today, Botto had his hands full as Casey Smith was able to gain a 3 second space, and the victory. Hats off to Norfolk local, Oriana Guindon, for the women's victory. Results for the 2nd Annual Norfolk Trail Race 5K are posted.

Cool mornings bring great races!. A Fantstic turnout for the 2nd Annual Pies & Pints 5K Ta-Ta Trot. It was Pat Dennen breaking the race record and establishing the new course record. Dorie Perugini takes the women's race. Results are posted.



Bright sunshine greeted the runners on the fairgrounds. The sun warmed what was a cool autumn morning and brought forth a great day for a race. Joseph Sayles sailed his way to victory over the fairly flat course in Northampton. Selena Proctor wasn't that far behind her husband , as she took the women's race. Results for the 4th Annual Hospice Meadows Run 5K are posted!
