Three of NETT's finest got their just desserts at the recent North Shore Trail Series awards nights. Here's Bobble Head Bob's report:
The North Shore Trail Series awards night was held Jan. 12 at New England Running Company in Beverly. Those of us at the awards received really nice zip/hoodie sweatshirts and a pint glass for completing at least 8 of the 9 trail races.
The results of the 9-race series are here. Chris "Fluffy" Smith took second in his age group, Alison Lackey took second in her age group, each of them running all the races except the Stone Cat marathon. I took first in my age group for the second year in a row, and fool that I am, I ran all 9 races including Stone Cat.
This trail series is lots of fun and very well run. Races take place on nice trails in places like Lynn Woods, Gloucester, Beverly Farms, South Hamilton, Ipswich, and Wenham. The race courses go from 5K to 5, 7, 10 milers and end with the Stone Cat trail marathon in November. This year they may replace one of the 10 milers with a half marathon in the spring sometime. I highly recommend the series to all NETT members.
Congrats to all!
