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:
Special thanks to all of the series sponsors, without whose support this race series wouldn't be possible:
Thank you to all of the volunteers that helped out each week, most of whom are Central Maine Striders. They are incredible and always make sure the races go smoothly. Congratulations to race director Patrick Guerette for running another successful, family-friendly race series, while benefitting the Boys & Girls Clubs and YMCA of Greater Waterville.
Finally, thanks to everyone who attended our Striders club BBQ held along with the race and awards. Despite some rain, we had a great time with all of you and hope to do it again! Thanks to everyone who contributed food, drinks, tableware, and delicious desserts, to Kim Mills who donated hot dog rolls and hamburger buns, to the Winslow youth cross-country team, which came out to run and provided some great food, and to Striders vice president Brendan Gilpatrick for manning the grill.
And Now, the Winners...
