Early Spring Race Recap

2016 Cherry Creek SneakIMG_9412

The Denver Track Club has long-avoided road competitions since it’s creation in 2012 because of a complicated sponsorship. With a new sense of independence, our mission was to become a part of the Denver road racing community. We believe that we have reached our goal during the 2016 Cherry Creek Sneak!

10 Miler: Ian Butler and Yianna Antonopoulos took 1st in the men’s and Women’s 10 Miler! Danielle Schmieder placed 4th (1st AG), Andrew Halverson (2nd AG), and Dyami Rolen placed 5th in his age group!

1.5 Mile Sneak Sprint: Mesfin Ferede established a new course record of 6:46 while averaging 4:30 per mile!

5k: Liz Fassel, Kelsey Desjarlais, Jenny Riat, and Megan Derschang all finished in the lead pack with an impressive 1-2-3-4 finish (respectively) in their Age Group!

The 2016 Horsetooth Half-Marathon was held during a powerful snow storm that left many Coloradans stranded. Undeterred, Matthew Matuszak and Ruth Waller-Liddle braved the brutal conditions and finished in 2nd and third places in the men’s and women’s divisions!
