Tortoise & Hare Races

Recap: Lee Martinez Park 10k T&H

Twenty-five members of the Fort Collins Running Club participated in today’s Tortoise & Hare race: the rerouted (due to construction) Lee Martinez Park 10k. The turnout was “not bad” considering 1) the longer distance and 2) the simply ridiculous (for March) starting temperature of 4F.

In fact, this was the coldest race in what has shaped up to be the most frigid Tortoise & Hare race series in recent memory, with the last four races being 5F (December), 8F (January), 8F (February), and 4F (March)!

In another notable streak, Maureen Hyde, in her first T&H series, came in first for the third time in a row due to her remarkable and consistent improvement over the course of the series. Congrats Maureen! [Full results]
