Woodinville 10 Miler     April 18, 2021
The Woodinville Ten Miles featured warm weather and some really fast times. The men's field was led by the amazing master runner David Simmons in 53:19, with Luke Martin and Tyler Flannery finishing in second and third, and leading a group of seven men who ran under 55 minutes. Sophie Liu, fresh off her second place at the Carmel Marathon, had a decisive win in 57:31, with Sally Crowther a strong second and Talia Ruxin in third. The master's men rocked, with 40s masters Simmon's win, Geoffrey Njonjo under 55 minutes, and Jeff Hashimoto and Ben Sauvage leading a deep field of 50 year olds. We had generous help from our wonderful volunteers: Mark Bloudek with course set up, Saul Kinderis at the turnaround, Helen Sherk taking photos, Claire DeVoe and David Longmuir at the water stations, Matt Huerta on the lead bike, and Laura Goodfellow, Acy Roff, Jamin King, and Colleen Engle helping with timing, runner support and water at the finish. Thanks to all!

Virtual Marathon Relay #4     March 7, 2021
Leg ratings M= moderate, H= hard, VH = very hard, EXT = extreme
It was an almost perfect day for Virtual Marathon Relay 4. That is, the weather was decent enough to race but rainy enough now and then to suppress the crowds. It was an exciting race as The Hypoxic Five edged Time Wounds All Heels by a scant 12 seconds, 2:42:39 to 2:42:51! All the teams were pretty evenly seeded and they all came close to matching their predicted seed times. Among open runners, the top individual performances were turned in by Hannah Westra (Team Scrambled Legs, Leg 5) and Evan Hardy (Team mRNA 1273 Fan, Leg 3). Top masters performances were turned in by supermasters (in every sense!) Gail Hall (Team Antivirus, Leg 1) and David Simmons (Team On Time, Under Budget, Leg 5), who had the fastest time of the day. So many other runners had great efforts, as they succeeded in matching or bettering their seed times.
Club Northwest vs Bellingham Distance Project
Special thanks to Mark Bloudek, mister Swiss-Army Knife, for his conception of this race, his implementation and organization, and, on top of all that, manning an exchange point! A huge thanks to all of our volunteers, without whom we would be lost (probably literally!): Mark, Emmet, Sheridan, Saul and Deborah (yes, after racing her leg). And we want to thank once again, Helen Sherk and Alison and Mark Mandi for taking great action photos along the course. You all made this a grand success!

Lincoln Park 20K Relay     Sept. 27, 2020
A great morning for running! Each runner ran the 2K course twice. Race summary follows results below.
The men's teams were chosen to be pretty evenly matched, and for the most part, they were. The men's team competition was close, with Teams 5 and 4 exchanging leads multiple times. Team 5, captained by Gabi Kliot, assumed the lead for good on Eric Bone's Leg 9 and they held on for a 12.4 sec win. On the women's side, Team 6, captained by Caitlin McIlwain, led from the gun over a strong team from the Seattle Running Club. Caitlin's team finished less than 30 secs behind the fifth men's team. In individual results, Bobby Baraldi ran a close race with Tyler Van Dooren, winning by 8 sec. Amber McCulloch, hot off her mile race on the track, apparently likes this 2 X 2K format, as she edged McIlwain by an 8 sec margin. Grace Gilson was the top youth runner in what was wholly a Club Northwest affair.

Virtual Marathon Relay #3     June 13, 2020
It was a perfect day for the third Virtual Marathon Relay, with an early morning drizzle discouraging almost all bike and running traffic. The teams were pretty evenly seeded and they all raced great! Team 1, Hindsight 2020, beat Team 6, Shooting for the Three Peat, by 5 seconds (2:37:10 to 2;37:15). Six other teams bested their predicted seed times to finish between 2:39 and 2:41. Nine individual course records were set, including Tyler Van Dooren’s, when he averaged 5:08 on a hilly leg to give his team the victory. Claire DeVoe and Jamin King had amazing races, smashing the old course records by 92 seconds and 102 seconds. (Claire had the old course record, so you know it was a high bar to exceed.) Many of the runners ran the same legs as in previous Virtual Relays and had the satisfaction of running faster today. And virtually everybody beat their predicted seed times on their legs. An outstanding effort by all!
Virtual Marathon Relay #2     May 16, 2020
A special thanks to Mark Bloudek for his vision in conceiving this idea and then putting in all the hard work to bring it to fruition. Many thanks to our exchange managers Whitney Heavner, Lana Lacey, Brent Jarosek, and Jenna Boren, as well as our bike overseers, Mark Bloudek and Matt Huerta. And a huge thanks to all our volunteers and participants in the marathon relays - without you, they would not have happened. What a grand time we all had!
