Northfield Mountain 06-7-2008

La Sportiva - USATF New England Mountain Running Championships

  The second largest field in the history of the Northfield mountain race took to the trails early this morning. A low fog kept the sun from breaking through and kept temperatures in the 60's to low 70's for most of the race. The air was thick, but the footing was dry and the field was fast. Many set personal best's and a number of age group and course records were broken.

Mark Miller posted the second fastest time run ever run (35:47) on the 6.5 mile (10.3 km) loop course which was first run in 2006. Dmitri Drozdov ran an impressive sub-4:15 sixth mile when he set the course record in 2006 (35:32). Miller (Mizuno) and Ryan Carrara (New Balance Boston) had a back and forth race with Carrara leading through the summit water stop (3.8 miles) after climbing over 900'. Miller pulled away for a 16 second victory during the 2.7 miles of descent. Justin Fyffe rounded out the top three taking 3:31 off of his time from last year. Fyffe currently tops the mountain circuit scoring in the best 5 of 6 race series which will resume on June 28 at Mt. Cranmore.

Amy Nedeau (BAA) ran the early miles just outside of the top 15 overall as she powered to a course record of 41:12. She took over three minutes off of Kelli Lusk's record from 2007. Nedeau ran unopposed, finishing close to 3 minutes ahead of Chrisy Carrara (New Balance Boston-44:08), and another minute ahead of teammate Lara Johnson (45:13). Carrara and Johnson ran the third and fourth fastest times ever.

Other impressive performances include Tim Van Orden (CMS-38:26) setting a 40+ CR, breaking Dan Verrington's 2006 time by 57 seconds in his 8th place overall finish. Race director Dave Dunham (39:22) also slipped under Verrington's record, but a master's victory at Northfield still eluded him. Martin Tighe (Tuesday Nite Turtles) knocked 41 seconds off of Rich Larsen's record with his 16th place overall 40:52. Larsen (SMAC) finished 2nd in the 50+ with an excellent 42:12. Max Thomas (WMM) set a new record for Junior men (under the age of 20) with his time of 45:00. Vincent Rivard (NMC) broke Peter Orni's course record by nearly a minute with his 50:33. The 60+ field was quite deep with 17 finishers.

On the ladies side Felicia Lombardi (age 14) running for the GCS triad, broke the existing course record by 1:26 with her 53:12. Lisa Doucett (CSU) took the measure of Mimi Willard's 50+ record, her 52:34 took 33 seconds off of the previous best.

The race could not be held without the selfless efforts of the volunteer crew. Thank you to:
Cathy Dunham, Art (Dad) Dunham, Regina (Mom) Dunham, Denise & John Underwood, Rose & Greg Washak, Krissy Kozlozsky, Paul Low, and everyone else who stepped in to help when they saw that help was needed. Thank you to Tim Van Orden and Jason Bryant who helped me mark the course. A special "Thanks!" to the clean-up crew who went out and ran the 6.5 miles picking up nearly 400 flags. That is the task that I dread the most. I'm not sure I saw everyone who was in the group but Ben Nephew, Jim Pawlicki, Tim Mahoney, Jeremy Huckins, Tim Van Orden, and Jason Bryant were among those putting in a long day.
