The athletic fields of Lehigh University held the stage for the 2014 USATF Club Cross Country Nationals race. The men covered 10 kilometers on a cloudy day with a 6 mph breeze and temps in the low 40’s. The masters team placed 9th out of 40 teams. CMS was the 2nd team from New England as BAA finished third. One minute and thirty seven seconds stood between the first CMS runner, Greg Putnam (34:06), and the fifth and last to score, James Pawlicki (35:43). Todd Callaghan (34:58), Alan Bernier (35:12), and Joe Shairs (35:19) filled spots two through four.

The CMS Seniors team placed 8th out of 25 teams and was the first team from New England, ahead of the Greater Lowell Road Runners who finished 10th. CMS was lead by Dave Dunham (36:37).
