Cherry Blossom 10K

A small group of Rose City runners participated in the Cherry Blossom 10K in Newark last weekend. More than 1,000 racers turned out on a day that started out pretty chilly, but turned into a nice day for running. This race starts uphill, and that’s not the last hill, but it probably is the steepest. The course is rolling (Aileen says all of mile 3 was uphill!) through the park.

Miles for Music 20K

The Miles for Music course in Johnson Park is loops, lots and lots of loops. Runners head out in one direction onto loop 1, back past the finish line and onto loop 2. Then they run loop 1 again, and loop 2 again. Then they run loop 1 one more time. That’s a total of 5 loops, if you are counting. The forecasted snow storm fortunately stayed out to sea, although we did see a few big wet flakes before the race. Unfortunately, March was doing its best to go out like a lion and the wind was whipping around! Rose City fielded three teams: Open Men – 10th 40s Men – 12th 40s Women – 8th. Thanks to the runners who came out for this early season challenge! Check out the pictures from the race on
