UPDATE: (January 21) Somerville Road Runners made the jaunt to the "City of Firsts" for the second race of the SRR Grand Prix – The Lazy Dog Classy 3 Miler. Special thanks to the Lazy Dog and Steve Martin for a great event.  (And thanks to the crew from Harpoon who was matching the post-race Bud Heavy with IPAs).  Remember all proceeds went to the next generation of runners – Lynn Classical Girls Cross Country.

On the Men's side, Jim Pawlicki's reign as the Top Dog of the Lazy Dog came to an end with Chris Antunes' victory.  SRR Men took 8 out of the first 10 spots.  One of the "firsts" Lynn claims, in its City of Firsts, is "First Air Mail Transport in New England" from Saugus to Lynn.  I think maybe we should put up a prop race between Chris Antunes on foot and Chris Crellin on wings to see who can get mail from Saugus to Lynn faster.

On the Women's side, well look what the cat dragged into the Lazy Dog… Deb Downs was the third woman in the race and first SRR woman.  That gave her enough points to take the overall lead in the SRR Grand Prix. Alas, just like every night has its dawn, so too, every rose has its thorn.  Deb will be missing New Bedford Half Marathon and using that as her one dropped score; so, if you ladies need something to believe in, remember to register for that and get those points.

Unofficial results are posted at the links above.

Please review.  You have until January 28th to email me with any corrections to any of my mistakes, and then the results go final.


Race #3 is Feb 1st – Super 5 – Remember to register for the team Somerville Road Runners.  The 5 Miler is the Grand Prix race and to receive full points, you must run that option.  If you run the 5k you will still receive one point and credit for participation.

Race #4 will be Mar 15th – New Bedford Half Marathon


Finally, it has come to my attention that the rules on race scoring may not be clear.  Only your highest scoring five results will be counted toward your final score.  If you run all six events, your lowest scoring race will be dropped.

Any questions, feel free to email me!
