Due to planned construction at Franklin Park on the cross country course during the summer and fall of 2012, the cross country courses will be closed in the fall of 2012 to most, if not all, meets that are usually scheduled for Franklin Park, as well as to practices on certain sections of the course. Events at all levels – open, collegiate, scholastic – are in the process of being rescheduled at other venues on the same dates for the 2012 season.

More information will be posted as it is received from the Boston Parks Department.

LOCALS POST FAST 10K's AT STANFORD
Palo Alto CA, April 7

The Stanford Invitational has a well deserved reputation of hosting some of the fastest track distance races in the country, and this year's meet proved no exception. 2011 NE Runner of the Year Tim Ritchie (BAA) placed 7th in one of the fastest 10,000's ever run by a New Englander, clocking a huge Personal Record 28:44.86; former Harvard harrier Daniel Chenoweth was two places back in 28:46.87. Katie DiCamillo (New Balance Boston) was runner-up by under a second in the women's race at 32:31.97, another exceptional PR, with Boston U's Katie Matthews 8th in 32:44.58.

Over 5000 meters, Dan Lowry of Brown was eighth in a university record 13:34.49 and the second fastest ever by an Ivy League runner;. Teammate Olivia Mickle broke the oldest Bruin record on the books by 40+ seconds, as her 33:59.26 bettered the standard set in 1981 by Ann Sullivan Hird (now a top masters competitor in NE championship events).

JOHNSON, KROSHUS WIN OVER 12K
Bedford NH, May 19

Kevin Johnson took his second win of the 2012 New England Grand Prix series and Emily Kroshus led the women's field at Saturday's Bedford Rotary Memorial 12K in Bedford NH. Warm but pleasant temperatures and bright sun were tempered by the shaded course as 511 runners completed the race.

Johnson, representing the new Western Mass Distance Project, was matched by Nate Jenkins (CMS) through the opening 3+ mile loop of the figure 8 course, but pulled away to a new course record of 36:51 over the 2nd circuit. Kroshus recorded a time of 43:52 to lead a BAA sweep, as teammates Lindsay Willard (44:24) and Caroline Bjune (44:44) chased her to the finish line on the Bedford HS track.

Age group winners performed well, with both 40+ winners - Joseph Koech (RUN) and Maria Servin (Whirlaway) in the top 10. Robert Cipriano and Karen McGahie led the 50+ runners, Jerry Learned and Karen Durante (Whirlaway) topped the 60+ crowd, and Denny Lelanc (GLRR) and Jane Levesquewere first NE 70+.

In team totals, Central Mass Striders were men's open and 40+ winners, with Whirlaway (50+) and Gate City Striders (M60+) also securing titles. Women's team wins were spread among the B.A.A. (Open), Whirlaway (40+) and CMS (50+). Full results are posted, and updated GP standings after 3 events will be ready on Monday after review of results.

The series continues on June 10 at the Newton (MA) 10K.
