Team RUN wins NEs, through to XC regionals

At the 2015 USATF New England Junior Olympic Cross Country Championship, Team RUN’s 13-14 year-old girls raced at a high level—sweeping the top three spots—and earned a trip to USATF regionals to be held on November 22 at Deerfield Park in Smithfield, RI.

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…

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…

3 Different Types of Post-Collegiate Runners

Most of us here at Marx ran cross country and track in college. Between all of us, we can typically identify 3 different scenarios for post-collegiate runners. The first is the “I’m never running another step in my darn life” runner. Next, and probably the most common, is the runner who stops running for some period of time after college. They work full-time, drink beer and eat junk food. They …continue…
