The Giralda Farms 10K returned to the race schedule and the team championship schedule this year, after a year hiatus for the 10K race. The race is now headed up by the Barwick Group. Sunday’s weather started out sunny and cool, but quickly and unexpectedly changed to windy and cloudy, which actually isn’t so bad for running. The course has undergone a few changes, eliminating one of the neighborhoods and incorporating two loops around the Giralda property (which means two trips up Treadwell). Reports were that the course was challenging, more so than the old course?
Rose City fielded two teams – the 40s men placed 9th and the 60s men placed 11th. The 10K had a good turnout, with nearly 400 runners completing the course.
Kathy and Aileen got to see RCR team members as they headed to the finish, all looking strong. Check the website for a few photos.
