Merrimack River trail race


River tops
Ben Nephew hasn’t entered for this weekend’s 18th running of the Merrimack River trail race. He has the most consecutive finishes of CMS team members, with ten. His streak is also second, behind only Tom Speidel who has run every edition of the race. Ben is also currently tied with fellow CMSers, Rob Smith and Dave Dunham. Rob and I both will not be racing this year due to injury (Rob) and nagging injury (my ankle). I’ve listed below the top 25 times ever run at the River. CMS runners own twenty of those times. Ben has three from when he was running for GBTC and the other two come from Dave Hannon (NETT) and Greg Hammett (now running for CMS).

D2, What an impressive number of fast finishes for all on your list. Double the fastest time and you'll see my predicted time. I'll be pulling through the woods just in time for the raffle! Looking forward to Saturday.
