Archie Post 5-Miler

Seven students raced last Sunday morning at the Archie Post 5-Miler, Vermont’s oldest road race of 44 years.  The five mile course sweeps through back neighborhoods of South Burlington and winds into UVM’s bike trail back to Gutterson for the finish.  In one of the fastest and most competitive races Archie Post has seen, with both male and female records shattered, Champlain XC held their own among the competitors.

Female Results:

Katherine R. (37:47), Alicia T. (40:35), Ellen V. (41:30)

Male Results:

Brian C. (30:18), Jacob M. (35:59), Elias C. (38:19), Eric H. (45:15)

Brian C. led the team coming in 22nd overall out of the pool of 115 runners.  Solid times for a first race of our XC season with plenty of opportunity to lower these times drastically over the next two months.

Oh, and Elias won a pie.  First XC Runner in Champlain’s history to win a pie by winning his age group.
