Mt Ascutney 06-23-2001

by Dave Dunham <mtnman@greennet.net>

Early maps of New England had Ascutney mountain was spelled 'Ascutegnik' which meant 'meeting of the waters'. The name seemed quite appropriate for the humid and foggy conditions this past weekend. Ascutney served as the final race in the 2001 USATF New Enlgland Mountain circuit; the 5 races contested this spring were the most ever for the circuit which began as 3 races back in 1996. The race was well managed by the crew at Ascutney despite this being the first year of their hosting a race.

The 3.8 mile paved road winds from the park entrance (550') to the upper parking lot (2,800'). Park information notes that 'excellent views are enjoyed from the upper parking lot'. However, the race day conditions made this impossible as fog and 100% humidity ruled the day. More than thirty of the 105 runners were racing for points in the mountain circuit. Twenty runners joined the 10,000' club by running all 5 of the circuit races. Very few changes occurred in the overall circuit results as most age categories were settled in the best 4 of 5 format prior to the start.

Eric Morse took the win at Ascutney and moved ahead of Dave Dunham in the men's open category. Yuki Minami held on to first in the women's open despite not running the finale. Donna Smyth increased her margin over Lisa Doucett to take the women's masters title. Donna's point total was the highest among the women in ANY division. Robert Chasen took the win over Len Hall in the 40+ men's. Genia Sanborn took the 50+ for women and Richard Stockdale took the men's side. Chasen and Stockdale had the 5th and 6th highest point total OVERALL. John Pelton took the men's 60+ catagory. Everyone who competed in 4 of the 5 races received t-shirts courtesy of Saucony, while circuit age group winners received gifts from Reebok and Powerbar.
