10th Annual Christmas Relays Track Workout

By Andy Chan

Thur, Dec 18th was the 10th annual Christmas Relays Track Workout. A record 20 runners showed up for the event –the usual Thursday night K-Stars as well as members of the Hoy’s Excelsior team, a Marathon Olympics Trials qualifier and a few first timers. A good time was had by all. In the Handicapped Start 1200 meters, runners started with various headstarts with the team result based on the finishing place of each team member. Steve “7:00 my A**” easily won the race for Team E but a tight pack by Team B (2nd-7th-11th-13th) gave Team B the win. Next came the Sprint Medley Relay. This year the legs were some rather unusual distances: 500-300-500-300. It made for some interesting running. Team E was victorious, covering the relay (which was 1 mile total distance) in 4:37. Team E was dominating again in the Distance Medley Relay. Tomas’ strong 800 leg gave Tower a huge lead when he took over for the anchor leg. Cedric (5:19) and Eric (5:16) gave chase but could not catch Team E. The new scoring system that awarded points to every team kept the standings close. All 5 teams were separated by just 10 points heading into the last event, the 10 Lap Relay. Bonus “prems” were awarded to the teams leading after lap 1 and lap 3 of the 10 Lap Relay..which made for some spirited and interesting competition. Cedric and Tower waged a fierve battle on lap 1, with Cedric earning the 6 bonus points for Team C with a :60 400 leg, just ahead of Tower’s :61. The Lap 3 prem went to Chris and Team A. Thanks to the prems, Team C was now the leader with 28 points, with Team E at 27, Team A at 25 and Team B at 23. But over the final few laps, Team E exerted their strength and came away with the win to clinch the overall championship. But not to worry as there were medals for the top 3 teams and plenty of gingerbread cookies and chocolate to go around to everyone.
