The GCS Triad Racing Team took home the men’s victory by a little over a minute, followed by the Greater Boston Track Club and CMS. The women’s race was a bit more spread out, with MVS beating Whirlaway by almost 5 minutes. There were 912 finishers.

Jarrod Shoemaker ran an impressive 14:52 to win the 5k race earlier in the day. He had no competition.

The 5k Grand Prix championship race is next weekend in Westford, Massachussetts.
