The 2016 Quarry Road Summer Race Series came to a successful close on Tuesday, August 16, with a fantastic 3K trail race and fun BBQ sponsored by Central Maine Striders. This summer 180 individuals ran at least one of the nine races held this summer at Quarry Road Trails in Waterville. And 40 ran at least one race at each of the three distances—3K, 5K, and 8K—to be included in the overall standings.
Congratulations to the 2016 Quarry Road Summer Race series winners:
