CSU Extreme XC Running Race!

The question of the day on Sunday was, “who is CSU X?” With our new CSU X tank tops, CSU X athletes plus family members and coaches competed in the 2k/5k/10k Holdenwood Cross Country Race! We met up in the morning and did a joint course tour led by Coach Alex, just like we do on snow, however, we had to focus our minds on running tactics instead of skiing tactics (no tucking down hills, sadly). The weather was beautiful and quite warm for a late September weekend. The course had a lot of varying terrain, including uphills, downhills, flats, and of course CSU’s favorite, transitions. Since we had such a large group, there was always a CSU’er near by, pushing you to go faster. No wonder we had such great results! Racing with a team of 23 CSU’ers in addition to Dorothee (who took the photos and cheered us on) and other parents, there was a CSU’er around every corner. Nice work everyone! Here are all the results and photos!

CSU-X(treme) takes on the Orchard House 5k

CSU showed up to the Louisa May Alcott Orchard House 5k race on Sunday, and in the wise words of Meg Yoder, we're the folks who ruin fun runs for everyone else.  The field wasn't super deep, but we added some quality, with Jackson taking home top honors and winning the whole race!

Excellent work by all the skiers!  It is so important to get out there and test your limits in races, because that's how you figure out what those limits are when the important races roll around.

Full results
(My GPS measured the course a smidge on the long side, but it's close enough to 5k, maybe 20 sec off).

CSU results:
Jackson - 19:54
Coach Alex - 20:12
Talia - 22:05
Rebecca - 23:09
Meg - 23:32
Izzy - 23:57
Lydia - 25:55
Violet - 26:09
Ella - 30:25

Coach Frank - 42:21 (in the 10k)

Nice work team!
