CMS results at the USA mountain running championships


USA Mountain running championships
Loon mountain (Lincoln, NH) once again hosted the USA Mountain running championships.  The 6.6 mile course featured nearly 3,000’ of climb and approximately 600’ of descent.  The signature section of the course was the “Upper Walking Boss” a half-mile stretch that featured an average grade of 40%.
The CMS squad has done well at recent Mountain Running championships and was looking to sweep the team titles.  They came close with the Men taking home Gold in the 60+, 50+, and 40+.  The team also took Bronze in the Open (despite the youngest member of the team being 49 years old!).
Individually CMS runners picked up four age group medals.

The Central Mass Striders men’s racing team had a solid weekend competing in two races in the Granite State: Mount Washington Road Race (June 16) and Ribfest 5 mile (June 17) – USATF New England Road Race Championship. Seniors Dave Dunham, Erik Vandendries, and David Lapierre ran both races while having an impact in the team scoring.

A clear day at the Mount Washington Summit (6,288 ft) awaited runners for the 7.6 mile trek up the auto road from Pinkham Notch. With 14 men racing, CMS won the men’s open, masters, and senior team competition. The CMS Veterans team finished 7th. 11 out of the 14 men placed in the top within their respective age group.

Patrick Rich led the CMS open team with a 9th place overall finish with a time of 1:12:29. Dave Dunham and Todd Callaghan would finish five seconds apart, placing 11th and 12 respectively. Erik Vandendries ran his 3rd fastest time on the mountain with an 18th place finish. Matthew Veiga would round out the open team scoring, placing 30th overall.  Patrick and Todd would win their age groups outright.

Francis Burdett would score down for the masters team as the 5th runner for CMS. The masters team was within 22 seconds of the open CMS team. The Senior team had David Lapierre and Ed Sheldon scoring as the 4th and 5th runners for the team. Stephen Reed, John Martin, and Walter Kuklinkski would combine to pace the Veterans team to 7th place.  CMS men highlighted below.
