Ruth Shields’ Syracuse Half Marathon Race Report

Editor’s note: the Syracuse half marathon was the latest race in the USATF Grand Prix series. RKR sent a contingent of men and women and had a great showing. Ruth ran a huge 8-minute personal best, so I asked her to write a race report for everyone’s reading enjoyment. Read all about her experience on the RunTuff website!

Not Ruth. But I couldn’t find any pictures of her, so here is a photo of Chad Byler.

Another Cross Country season has come and gone

Roadkill Racing was founded on a love for cross country, and for the opportunity to win beer and glory at the Pete Glavin Cross Country series, one of the finest local series around. Even though the distances are made up and the times don’t matter (race director Mike Nier’s words), the races always attract a lot of regional talent and are lots of fun.

This year, we ran a few new courses in addition to the regulars. A full race report will come soon, but for now, enjoy this brief recap of the races:

  • 09/08 Long Branch Park 5K – Syracuse
    • masters women 4th
    • men 7th
  • 09/22 Center Park 5K – Fairport
    • men 4th
    • masters women 5th
  • 10/06 Akron Falls 6K – Akron
    • masters women 3rd
  • 10/27 Taughannock Falls 5K – Ithaca
    • men 4th
    • women 5th
  • 11/03 Finger Lakes Community College 8K – Canandaigua
    • masters women 3rd
    • men 5th

Now that the PGXC series has wrapped up, a contingent of the RKR men is now preparing to unleash at USATF Club Cross Country Nationals in Bethlehem, PA on December 14th!
