Turkey Trot Season is Back

Despite the warmer-than-usual weather, cross-country season’s grand finale upon us, and Halloween candy-as-fuel still a recent memory, it is time to look toward the holidays and that can only mean one thing: turkey trot season. Although the cause remains unclear, the annual road race on or around Thanksgiving is as now common as turkey and football, or pilgrims and cranberry sauce. Is it because we feel a little guilty for gorging ourselves …continue…

Turkey Trot Season: By the Numbers

Each year on Thanksgiving, we look forward to eating a delicious feast with family and friends. But as runners, this only comes after we test our limits at a local road race. It’s usually pretty easy given the abundance of races and the fun atmosphere at these events. There’s just something a little bit more satisfying about that Thanksgiving meal if you have a sense of accomplishment under your belt. …continue…

Never Give Up: A Baystate Half Marathon Race Report

Halfway into the Baystate Half Marathon, Team Run member and Marx Running store employee Ethan Brown was in 5th place. Discouraged, he knew he was well off of the 1:11:15 goal time that he had set for himself. Furthermore, it had been a season goal of his to win the Baystate Half Marathon, which he considers his home race (he hails from Lowell and trains on the course everyday). But …continue…

Turket Trot Season Approaches

It’s hard to believe that Thanksgiving is fast approaching, the days are getting shorter, and the weather seems to get more frigid by the day. While it’s always tough to see the warm weather fade away, we’re not too upset for one simple reason: It’s turkey trot season. For whatever reason, running road races on or around Thanksgiving has become as commonplace as eating turkey. Is it because we feel …continue…

Trail racing – a great way to mix it up

For our regular cross country runners out there—those athletes training to race on three-plus miles of gravel and dirt—the rise of trail running is something of a “told-you-so” moment in running. Training on trails is fun? Told you so. Planning out a race schedule where the courses are varied each week is fun? Told you so. Logging miles and scenic vistas is fun? Told you…well, that is where trail running …continue…

Brown, Reilly, Colella represent Team Run at Baystate

In Lowell on Sunday, Team Run’s Ethan Brown found himself racing on his virtual home course at the Ashworth Awards Baystate Half Marathon. Brown, who didn’t feel well off the start line and knew he wouldn’t get his goal time, began catching the leading runners eight miles in and kept his pace through the finish to win the race in 1:12:41.7 (averaging a 5:33 min/mile). The win was a season-long …continue…

Lone Gull 10K is all Sang, Rop, Team Run

With his victory at the Nagog Seasons Half Marathon on September 7, 2014, Amos Sang set a new course record in 1:09:52.70 — good for a 5:21 pace overall — and was a streak of Puma blue running down the home stretch. At the Lone Gull 10K in Gloucester on Sunday, Sang again set a course record in 30:14 — but this time in the flying orange of Team Run, leading fellow racers Glarius …continue…

Team Run in top spots at 2nd Annual Nagog Seasons Half Marathon & 5k

No, it wasn’t the world record it looked to be, but Peter Omae’s very own Team Run still took the top slots in the Nagog Seasons 5k on Sunday in Acton, MA. Lauren Lesniak (19:20), James Allen (age 12, 19:26), and Gabby Allen (age 14, 21:26) ran to second, third, and sixth overall, good for first female, second male, and second female. Omae accidentally missed part of the course at …continue…
