Trail Racing Over Texas Cup Update Post Wildflower Half
Well as with any new point system I knew that it would take a year at least for everyone to get the hang of the points and also for there to be true competitiveness in it as well. Wildflower was an equalizer since it was closer to some groups that others and that really shook the rankings up.
Our Top 3 Men with Jeff Ball, Andre Fuqua and Steve Moore stayed the same as none of them ran the Wildflower Half. Team TROT runner Dan Bucci after his win moved into 5th overall, Cody Wollard's solid performance moved him into 7th and Marc Henn's consistent approach has him in 10th.
TEAM TROT runner Tracie Akerhielm retained her lead but Team TROT runner Lauren Ross moved into a solid 2nd place after winning the Wildflower Half. Jenna Jurica who won the 10k at Wildflower moved into a solid 3rd place within striking distance of the lead.
Where there is smoke there is FIRE... And the Brazos Running Club is ON FIRE right now. They send the troops out in full force to the Wildflower Half and hit the Jackpot.
The Golden Triangle Strutters tacked on 6 points to push them to 173.4 and sole leader of the CLub Standings. The Brazos Running Club put up over 59 points to move them past the HATRs into 2nd place with 110 points. The Houston Area Trail Runners picked up 25 points to pull them up to 94 points. Team RWB add 10 to their 47 point total and the Lone Star Spartans added 5 points to get them to 33.
In our volunteer contest James "im here every race" Limbaga leads the volunteers followed by Eddie Williams and Robyn Thompkins.
So the places are moving and everything that goes with it. The Texas Treasure Quest is a points based game so it does not count but we will resume with the August 6th Night Moves Trail Run.
