NEWS & UPDATES:

GVH’s Veteran Women’s team has had a very active and busy fall/winter of running in Rochester and around the Country!

In the PGXC Series we started out the underdogs taking a 3rd place finish in the first race, coming back to enter the championship race in Ithaca tied with the Syracuse Track Team.  We raced hard and came out on top by 2 points!  Thanks to the amazing running efforts of Kathy Hayden, Maureen Bischoff, Carol Bischoff and Bonnie Lindblom on an extremely cold, snowy day.

The team participated in the Masters National 5k XC Race in Tallahassee, FL in Nov, placing 2nd.  Kathy Hayden and Colleen Magnussen both taking 4th place in their respective age groups.  This was a great race on an amazing course providing a good preview of where we would race at Club Nationals in Dec.  Kathy, Colleen, Carol and Gail all attended and all raced well.

Several of our runners ran in the Race with Grace 10k on Thanksgiving day.  It was cold and rainy, but they all ran great!  Congratulations to Kathy Hayden, Carol Bischoff and Bonnie Lindblom for capturing the top 3 spots in the 50-54 age group and to Marie White for winning the 55-59 age group!

Club Nationals (also in Tallahassee, FL) was a great trip, with a lot of time connecting with teammates and friends, fun times and racing hard! The team raced well, against some tough teams, ending in a tie for 4th place, our highest finish at Clubs in the past 5 year!
