Local Clubs Unite in First Virtual Challenge
Adam Terko and his Mansfield Nordic Club are leading the way with innovative programming as we head into a new training season. Athletes were challenged to:
“Run your own uphill test, on foot, as fast as you can. The requirements for this test?
-Race must finish higher than it started: a net elevation gain. No minimum or maximum on the elevation gained…it can even finish just going up your driveway if that’s higher than the surrounding road!” Full Details on Mansfield Site
All told 41 folks took part over three days and representing seven states or provinces, and seven clubs!
A few result highlights:
|Most Elevation||Silas Brown||Mansfield Nordic||2803|
|Most feet-per-mile||Theodore Mollano||Dublin XC||2833.3|
|Longest run||Andy Grab||Mansfield Nordic||12.2|
|Shortest run||Theodore Mollano||Dublin XC||0.03|
