Congratulations and thank you to the 99 racers who completed the 4th annual Caspian Challenge this past Sunday and to those who came to cheer them on and support a great cause – Lakeview School.
Race results are here – the winning runner for the 6.8 mile lake loop was Sam Beech with a Caspian Challenge record of 38:18:5. Richarda Ericson was the fastest woman on the course with a time of 49:50.3. David Lambert was the fastest competitor in the 5k run, with a time of 23:21.0, and Julie Gallivan Parker was the fastest 5k woman at 28:21.2.
5k walkers Kole Dornseifer and Terri Sugimoto completed their course in 47:11.4 and 47:13:3, respectively
We all owe a big THANK YOU to Victoria von Hessert, who organized this event and made it “run” so smoothly. And to her great group of volunteers – we all appreciate your efforts!
The Caspian Challenge race was reestablished in 2012 as a community event and fundraiser. It is based on a similar event which occurred in the 1970’s and 80’s. Proceeds each year are distributed to a organization or program which is selected by The Greensboro Association Board of Trustees.
