NETT runs the Rivah!

Despite some gloomy-looking skies early on, NETT was out in force at the 17th Annual Merrimack River Trail Race (the RIVAH) in Andover, Mass on Saturday.

Overall, NETT was third in team scoring. On the men’s side, Paul Young ran a rare PR on the wet course to finish 12th overall in 1:05:30. John Kinnee (although registered to CMS—BOO!!!) finished in 1:08, and the pair of Big Ben Winther and Crazy Dave Hannon chugged in together in 1:17. Also out on the course were NETT pals Pat Dwyer completing his first trail race in an impressive 1:07 and Brodie Miles clocking a 1:11.

The ladies had a fine showing with trail expert Adrienne Cyrulik finishing fifth woman in 1:25. Karyn Miller-Medzon (Eminem) slim-shadied her way to a 1:36 and Laura Wieland was just behind in 1:38, both running in their first longer trail race.

As usual, the race was well-organized by Dave Dunham and Steve Peterson, and Petey gets the most enthusiastic race director award! (“He gets a t-shirt and SKITTTLES!!!”) Funds raised by the race support the Thomas Chamberas Memorial Runners Scholarship.
