In the eighth race of the 2013 USATF-CT Grand Prix Series, the New Haven 20k, the NHRR Masters Men took first while the Open Men and Women's teams both placed second. Fortunately the Open Men's second place finish was enough to clinch an over all victory in the 2013 USATF-CT Grand Prix.
On the individual side NHRR had a very strong showing with 10 men and 7 women participating under terribly humid conditions. Notable performaners include Tom who was the 3rd CT runner overall and Nathan who posted a huge PR performance under especially rough conditions!

Thanks, perhaps in part, to the systematic incorporation of Jack Daniels' Marathon workouts and Shark Tank Hills into NHRR's blood by Coaches Andrew and Nathan, several inidividuals saw large PR's in the marathon this Fall season:
Starting in October with the Chicago Marathon, Nathan crushed his former Marathon best by over ten minutes with a 2:51:01. With this performance Nathan clinched the title of "fastest NHRR, non-collegiate/high-school marathoner"! One week later, Joost, crushed the Amsterdam Marathon with a debut time of 2:47:25, while injuried!
With the cancelation of the New York City (NYC) Marathon, Matt registered at the very last minute for the challenging Manchester City Marathon where he not only PR'd (2:43:43) but placed 5th overall! Andrew and Eugene, who were also signed up for NYC Marathon, joined Tom, Roberto, Brian, Adam and Dan two weeks later at the Philadelphia Marathon. Under perfect conditions, Tom (2:33:53), Andrew (2:45:13), Brian (2:49:30) and Roberto (2:59:47) all saw significant PR's!!
Finally, after a couple years marked by injuries and surgery, Christina returned to the 5k with a stellar 17:15 for 2nd place in the Boston River Run!
Complete Results can be found below. Congratulations to everyone who raced but remember to rest up for Christopher Martins!
