Our first Loco Moose (Almost Free Running Shoes) 5K of the year was a smashing success
as we squeezed 150 entrants into a 125 runner field. Many late arrivals missed the 125
cutoff for the free shoes, but the guys at Loco Sports had brought along enough shoes
to cover the whole crowd.
 
Many of the entrants, mostly from Fitness First of Bristol, were running in their first
race and had a great time on the off-road course through beautiful Colt State Park.
Despite the near 100 degree heat throughout the rest of New England, the temperatues at
Colt State Park near the shore were in the mid 80's at race time.
 
Andrew Sabourin and Paige Roberts led the way for the men and women in 18:59 and 20:55
respectively over the challenging course.
 
We will be back at Colt State Park for another run over the same course on October 20th.
This race will be the Road Runners Club of America Rhode Island Championships.

Note: We thought the course may have been a tad short, making it the Loco Moose (Almost Free Running Shoes) almost 5K.
