Mt Ascutney 06-11-2005

The USATF NE mountain circuit moved to Vermont on June 11 for the fourth race in the six race circuit.
Paul Low (CMS) led the way as 80-degree temperatures and oppressive humidity had many running conservatively over the 3.7 mile course from the base to summit of Ascutney Mountain.

Low, the 2004 US mountain champion, took the lead at about halfway and powered to the fourth fastest time ever at Ascutney as he was the only runner to average under 8:00 / mile. His 29:27 had him thirteen seconds clear of course record holder Eric Morse (CMS); his 29:50 was the seventh fastest time ever, and a new course record for 40+ runners. Dave Dunham (CMS) ran the fifth fastest 40+ time, finishing sixth overall in 33:39. Robert Chasen (Tri-Valley) took the 50+ victory in 38:35, fifth fastest ever for the age group, and Peter Orni (CMS) was the top 60+ in 45:03, third best for that division.

Suzy West (CSU) took the women's win in 38:00, the fourth fastest ever run and also number two among the 40+ age group behind her own course record of 36:52. Donna Smyth (CSU) was second in the 40+ running the eighth fastest time; she now owns four of the top eight times for the 40+ age group.

In USATF Team competition, the Central Ma. Striders took the victory with a perfect six points (three runners score based on finishing position); CMS took the top six spots in the race. The North Medford Club and Moose Milers and Marathoners battled for second, with NMC taking it 28 to 35 points. The NMC also tied CMS in the 40+ competition, both scoring 28 points. NMC won the 50+ team competition with 95 points to Gate City Striders' 106.

2005 Circuit Scoring: Paul Low leads the men's open with 295.83 points ahead of Kevin Tilton at 292.62 points. Dave Dunham leads the 40+ crowd with 356.36 points, with Dave Audet (NMC) second with 332.95 points. (They currently have the most points in any category, with the maximum being 400 points.) Suzy West leads the women's 40+ (and has the most points for any women's category) with 313.86 points, with Donna Smyth second at 286.67 points. Other leaders: women's open, Kathy Hurst, 282.19 points; women's 50+, Jacqueline Keith, 199.84; men's 50+, Richard Stockdale (MMM), 280.88 points; men's 60+, Eldon Burkinshaw (GCS) 246.03; men's 70+, Paul McDermott (NMC), 141.13. After four races there are 25 runners who have run each race.

The circuit continues on June 25 at Northfield, MA at 9:00. The race features a multi-loop all-trail course with both climbs and descents, and generally good footing. The final race of the circuit is at Mt Cranmore on August 7.
