As we approach the second race in our Road Racing Grand Prix series this weekend — the New Bedford Half Marathon — we have two individuals leading the overall series.
The first and only race so far, the Jones 10 Miler, took place late last month in Amherst, MA. The challenging, hilly course didn’t stop Eric Ashe and Erica Jesseman from taking the top spots for the open male and female USATF-NE competitors. As your current Grand Prix leaders, we wanted to hear a little bit from these two local athletes about what it took to take the titles, and where we can expect to see them throughout the year.
Eric Ashe, B.A.A. — Male Open USATF-NE Grand Prix Leader
Eric chose to compete in the Jones 10 Miler because it’s part of the Grand Prix series and he wanted to score points for his team, the B.A.A. He also knew there would be some solid competition, and it would serve as a good preparation for the upcoming Boston Marathon he’s currently training for.
“I used the race as a good workout for Boston,” Eric said, noting he did a longer warm-up than usual (6 miles) and went right into a 4 mile cool down to get his mileage in. “It was definitely a good indicator of how training is going, as my legs weren’t too beat up after the race,” he said.
It’s the first time Eric is really focusing on the marathon and he reports that his training is going very well. He says he’s in the best aerobic shape he’s ever been, which clearly showed in his last race, where he completed the 10 mile course in 50:43 — that’s 5:04 per mile pace, and overall 7 seconds faster than second place finisher Ruben Sanca of the Whirlaway Racing Team.
We can expect to see Eric on the starting line at the New Bedford Half Marathon, where he plans to approach the race in the same manner as the first Grand Prix race, which is to go for the win but also use it as a workout for Boston. Looking ahead to April, Eric says: “I’m excited for what is to come at Boston as long as I can teach my body to hold up for 26.2 miles, and if I can stay healthy and consistent.”
For more on Eric’s training and racing, check out his NPR blog and this recent feature article on him at the same media outlet. Considering his early Grand Prix lead, it appears Eric may be the one to beat in the 2014 series.
Erica Jesseman, Dirigo Running Club — Female Open USATF-NE Grand Prix Leader
Erica joined the Dirigo Running Club in the summer of 2011 after graduating from the University of New Hampshire, attracted to the club’s fun and laid back environment — and living in Maine, it was most convenient for her too. For the Jones 10 Miler race, Erica had a similar approach as Eric, envisioning it as a great workout. She was most excited to compete with her Dirigo teammates Sheri Piers and Kristin Barry, who are Erica’s main training partners and mentors. Also training for Boston, she knew this race would serve as a nice preparation.
Her approach was to go out comfortably and controlled. “I knew I needed to run my own race; I didn’t focus on anyone but myself and my paces,” she said. Her approach obviously was the right one, as she came into the finish at 59:33, which is 5:58 per mile pace.
Leading up to the race, Erica had been training through a tough winter like many of us, after suffering from IT Band Syndrome in the fall. Despite the conditions and bouncing back from the injury, she’s managed to hit 80-90 miles per week, many of them on the treadmill and hilly long runs outside on the weekends. “I haven’t been hitting my highest mileage during this marathon training cycle,” Erica noted, “it’s been more quality over quantity.”
Where else can we expect to see Erica in race results? Next on the calendar is the New Bedford Half Marathon, and in April she’ll be lining up for the Boston Marathon.
Congratulations to both Eric and Erica on their early leads in the USATF-NE Grand Prix series. Stay tuned for Sunday’s race results in New Bedford, to see how they fare as they look to continue their winning streaks while training for the Boston Marathon.
The 37th Annual New Bedford Half Marathon on March 16th marks the second race in the USATF-NE Road Racing Grand Prix series. But for Whirlaway‘s Sarah Prescott, the race signifies much more. In fact, once she crosses the finish line, she will have completed her 100th consecutive USATF-NE Grand Prix race.
A runner since 1978, Sarah started entering Grand Prix races in 2000 when the club team she was a member of participated in the team competition. Motivated by seeing her name in the standings, she never looked back. Throughout this time, not only has she been a consistent name in our race standings, but she’s even found her way to the top of the results page many times too. She placed sixth last year in the series for the women’s 45-49 year old age group, and finished fourth the year prior.
Showcasing her range, in 2013, Sarah ran 36:11 for the 5 miler, 1:36:14 for the half marathon and 3:53:49 for the marathon. Considering the variety of distances included in the Grand Prix, Sarah’s training must prepare her for all sorts of races. This is why she has tailored her training based on the Grand Prix race schedule each year.
In addition to the series typically offering some races in her neck of the woods in New Hampshire, Sarah also says the Grand Prix boasts a good combination of distances and locations, while fostering camaraderie and team competition, which she enjoys with the Whirlaway Racing team. While there are no official rankings for her streak, she says “Looking at available stats, next behind me is Christopher Chetsas (a fellow Goon Squad founder) with his streak of 6 consecutive Ironrunner years. My streak has been 14 consecutive Ironrunner years, plus one race in 2014.”
So what’s next for Sarah? “Just keep running!” she says. “I’ve done more than I ever imagined being able to do and feel incredibly fortunate for all the wonderful people I’ve become friends with… how could I ask for anything more?”
Reflecting on her favorite Grand Prix moments, Sarah adds: “There are so many wonderful memories, it would take a story itself! Cape Cod Marathon was always extra special, first time I qualified for Boston Marathon and some really fun post-race parties.”
We would like to extend our congratulations to Sarah for her dedication to and successes in the USATF-NE Grand Prix series, and wish her continued success, especially at the upcoming New Bedford Half Marathon!

UPCOMING RACES – Important Deadlines & Registration Details
The 2014 Road Racing Grand Prix officially kicks off tomorrow, February 23rd, with the Jones 10 Miler in Amherst, MA. The challenging race along scenic, hilly rural roads offers a total of $9,250 in prize money. $1,750 will be awarded to top individuals, $2,500 in age group prizes (no double dipping) and $5,000 for top teams. The event is rooted in New England history, having been founded by USATF-NE President Tom Derderian in 1975 as a tune-up race before the Boston Marathon. In fact, as the race website notes, “Bill Rodgers won Jones 10 Miler the first year it was held and used the race as a training run for his first Boston Marathon victory.” Past results for the race can be viewed here. If you’re still interested in racing and have yet to sign up, it’s not too late. Race-day registration begins at 9:00 am at Amherst Regional High School.
The full 2014 Grand Prix schedule is outlined below, but there are two races taking place just next month that we want to make you aware of. The 37th Annual New Bedford Half Marathon will be held on March 16, with registration closing on March 1.
Next up in the calendar is the An Ras Mor 5k in Cambridge, the shortest race distance in the series. Held on March 30, runners can enter up until race day; however, entry fees go up $5 after March 9. USATF members will receive a discount on the registration fee. Please note that there are are no special steps needed to do so — simply select the “USATF member” category and know your 2014 individual USATF member number, which can be looked up here.
2014 Road Racing Grand Prix Calendar
Updates to the 2014 Grand Prix Guidelines
There are a few notable changes to the Grand Prix Guidelines this year. Men’s and Women’s 70+ age group teams will be included in the scoring, as well as women’s 65-69 and 70+ individual age groups. Additionally, individuals winning their age group will begin with 10 points and those in second, third, etc, will be scored one point less for the top ten regardless of how many finishers are in the age category. Also in 2014, runners aging into a new category as individuals will still receive points in the age group in which they began the series. Their name will also appear in their new age group and they can accumulate points there as well.
Be sure to visit our website for the latest Grand Prix standings following each event. In 2013 Grand Prix standings, B.A.A. and Whirlaway Racing team took the men’s and women’s open team titles respectively, with Sean Duncan of WMDP and Stephanie Reilly of Team RUN coming in as the the top open individuals. To view the winning Grand Prix teams since 1986, check out that list on our website here.
Which teams and individual runners will take home the top Grand Prix titles and prize packages this year?
For some cross country athletes in our association, their season still has some time to go, as many are planning to race at the USATF National Club XC Championships in Bend, Oregon next month. However, the USATF-NE Grand Prix series is coming to a close on Sunday at Franklin Park in Boston with the USATF-NE XC Championship race.
After four events, who is leading the series? Our highlights are below, but the full XC Grand Prix standings to date can be found on our website here. Join us on Sunday at Franklin Park to see how the series plays out. Looking at how close many of the individual/team competitions are in the standings, it should be an exciting race. More information on Sunday’s race can be found here.
The women’s open team competition shows the tightest race, where Greater Boston Track Club (GBTC) and Western Mass Distance Project (WMDP) are tied for first with 45 points each. Millennium Running, a club that just emerged for the last two races, is in third with 25 points.
While the competition isn’t quite as close in the men’s open team scoring, there are still just 15 points separating the first through third place teams. GBTC is in first with 42 points, HFC Striders is in second (32 points) and WMPD rounds out third place (27 points).
Masters – Age Group Teams
The 40+, 50+ and 60+ age group teams also have seen team scoring in the series. WMPD is leading the women’s 40+ teams with 57 points, with Greater Lowell Road Runners (GLRR) and Greater Derry Track Club trailing in second and third respectively. The men’s 40+ teams have a strong top three with HFC, GBTC and GLRR (in that order). Moving up to men’s 50+ teams, we see those same three teams yet again, but in a different order — GLRR leads, with GBTC and HFC trailing.
Looking at individual performers, GBTC’s Alyson Millett leads the open women competitors — but Caroline Bjune of Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A) is just 14 points behind, and Sydney Fitzpatrick of New Balance Boston (NBB) trails by just three points.
On the men’s open side, WMDP’s Sean Duncan leads with 295 points, despite missing the Mayor’s Cup race. He is followed by the only two male runners over 200 points, both of GBTC – Ryan Irwin and Jonathon Charlesworth.
Masters – Age Group Athletes
HFC Striders is dominating the men’s 40-49 age group athletes, with Jason Cakourus (also USATF-NE XC Chair) leading the group in 355 points. His teammates Phil Parks and Justin Renz follow in second and third in the standings.
The men’s 50-59 age group has three individuals between 300-345 points. While Bob Collins of B.A.A. is currently leading, Dan Verrington of Central Mass Striders (CMS) is on his heels just five points back. GLRR’s Mark Reeder stands strong in third place.
GBTC is claiming the top three spots in the men’s 60+ age group. Bruce Bond (395 points), USATF-NE President Tom Derderian (370 points) and Joel Bargmann (180 points) lead this group.
The women’s 40-49 group has a tight race to the top. Trish Bourne of GLRR and Dana Parrot of WMPD are currently tied for first with 290 points. Karin George of WMPD is in third, not far behind with 270 points.
Anne Hird has a significant lead in the women’s 50-59 age group, with 135 points separating her from the closest runner. GLRR’s Mary Casey-Gorman and WMDP’s Leann Cerpovicz round out the top three in this group.
Mary Sharkey of CMS is the lone 60+ participant, though she has completed all four races in the series thus far.
The attached PDF is unofficial. It breaks out USATF-NE members from the full Manchester City Marathon results. Please use to review to see if all your club members are listed. Club names, 5 year age divisions, age group rankings, etc, will be posted later. Team results are also scheduled to be posted by 5pm Monday, Nov 4.
The Mayor’s Cup Cross Country race began in 1990. According to the B.A.A. website, the event has “become one of the premier cross country meets on the East Coast, and has been regarded as an important tune-up for the USA Fall National Club Cross Country Championship.”
Tomorrow, teams and athletes from all over will toe the start line at Franklin Park in Boston for the Mayor’s Cup races. The event features six different races for various ages and abilities, which take off between 10 am and noon ET. There are more than 850 runners entered already, and more than half of those are youth.
The women’s and men’s championship races will look to provide some exciting competition from the club teams participating, as the Mayor’s Cup serves as the fourth of five races in the USATF-NE Grand Prix Cross Country series. The entries so far show a mix of teams from New England and New York coming to race. On the men’s side we expect to see teams on the course from: BAA, GBTC, HFC Striders, New Balance Boston, Community College of RI, Bryn Mawr RC, Central Park TC-New Balance, Pacers/New Balance and Manhattan Aeronauts. The women’s championship race will feature teams from BAA, GBTC, Cambridge RC, Millennium Running, New Balance Boston and Central Park TC -New Balance.
Looking at the teams entered, it will be interesting to see how the New York teams fare at the New England event. Will they outrace the New Englanders on their home turf? And on the women’s side, we’ve recently seen Millenium Running come into the mix, as the New Hampshire based club took the team title at the last USATF-NE Grand Prix race, Wayland XC Festival, beating out WMDP and GBTC.
Any predictions for which teams and individuals will take the top spots tomorrow? We’ll know soon enough. Hope to see you out on the course!
Cheryl Cleary of Central Mass Striders (CMS) has more than 15 years of running under her belt, but not until recently did she start running her all-time best. This past weekend, for example, at the Nahant 30k, she took the women’s title in the USATF-NE Grand Prix race, setting a major PR in the process and breaking the course record. Her time of 2:01:05, a 6:30 per mile pace over the course of more than 18.5 miles, is impressive in itself — but what may be most impressive is that Cheryl will be turning 40 in January and has four kids.
So, what has been the key to her success? We got the inside scoop from Cheryl herself. Here’s what she had to say.
On her…Recent Racing Successes
- “Winning the USATF-NE Grand Prix Nahant 30k was the greatest moment in my running career to date. After 15+ years of running, my training has jumped to a new level since I decided to accept coaching from Kevin Beck in June. I’ve done everything he has told me to with adjustments along the way and his brilliance and specificity in workouts has obviously done the trick. My goal this summer was to break 18 in a certified 5k, which I did at Canal Diggers 5k, running 17:40 to win and take the course record there in early September. I’ve also set PRs in the 5 mile and 10K. Coming up next is the Hartford Half Marathon and Manchester Marathon.”
…Training and Diet
- “I’ll be 40 years old in January and have four kids ages 7, 5, 3 and 23 months. A lot of my training is on my treadmill with long runs done outside with my training partner Arthur Besse. We’ve hammered out 18 milers with the last 12 around 6:45 per mile pace average, sometimes bringing the final two miles down to under 6:30 pace. I also do two other quality speed sessions per week. In my opinion, the biggest key to my recent success and ability to stay injury free is diet. I don’t eat anything special but have made changes in the direction of ‘clean eating.’ It helps in recovery and I include a lot of raw foods in my diet each day like nuts and avocados and lots of grilled chicken.”
…Pack Racing with the Guys
- “During the Nahant 30k, I joked with a group of guys around mile eight that I was running with, and said ‘so, you guys going to help pace me to win this?’ (I was in third place at the time but could see the two ladies in front of me slowing). I heard some chuckles, but it was those guys that led the way for me, and I thank them dearly. Working together in a race is key and I do not wear a watch but run by feel in races. By mile 15, the group broke up but I managed to catch Justin Soucy of Gate City Striders with a couple miles to go and he talked me through to the finish, keeping me relaxed as I envisioned the feeling of what was about to be mine. It was extremely emotional to capture the victory. A Grand Prix race. All that I have worked for, one moment.”
We congratulate Cheryl on her well-deserved victory and wish her the best of luck in her upcoming races, including the Manchester City Marathon on November 3rd, the final race in the 2013 USATF-NE Road Racing Grand Prix series.
