The 3rd Annual Nashoba Valley Grand Prix series concluded with the Ayer Thanksgiving Day Firefighter 5k this past Thursday. It was a perfect day for a race and the committee from Ayer always puts on a great event as does Groton and Harvard. I would like to congratulate all those that participated in our series and thank all of the towns who committed resources (time & money) to make this series happen. It’s always nice to hear runners say that they wouldn’t have run these races if it wasn’t for the series and the coveted custom printed hoodie at the end!
The final results are posted and the winners are the following:
- Sylvia Jackson – 1st place
- Amei Shei – 2nd place
- Sue Cote – 3rd place
- Dave Dixon – 1st place
- Don Cosetino – 2nd place
- Christopher Russell – 3rd place
(Christopher Russell is on the Groton race committee and not eligible for prize money. The money rolls down to Spencer McEwen of Harvard, MA. Sylvia Jackson is also not eligible for prize money as she is only 14 years old. As she did last year, her prize money will be donated to a cause to be named.)
The committee is made up of members of the race committees from Ayer, Groton and Harvard. The committee will be meeting at some point soon to decide if the series will continue for a 4th year.
Enjoy the Winter and keep on running!!!
