And the 2017 Club Challenge Winner is...

In 2017, Caroline Troise prevailed over the field of 100+ runners who scored for the House and participated in the 2017 Club Challenge series.

It came down to the frigid Hangover Classic on New Year’s Day, but Dr. Troise won her age group and scored enough age-graded RMHP points to clamber over Dan “I have something better to do than race 5 miles along the ocean in <10 degree weather” McCarthy and into the hotly contested winner’s circle. Caroline and Dan are also joined by Rose Sedgwick, Dietrich Neumann, Peter Sedgwick, Mark Schwager, and Russell Carey in securing coveted 2018 Club Challenge T-Shirts for completing seven or more of the year’s events. Congratulations, all.

How Challenge Points are Scored

Club members who compete in 7 or more of these races will receive a commemorative shirt and are eligible for other awards based on the following point system.

Finish times graded on a scale that takes into account age and gender. In each race the top finisher among our club runners received 15 points, second 12 points, third 10 points, fourth 9 points, fifth 8 points, etc.  All finishers, regardless of time, received at least 1 point.

For example: If the first RMHP-RC runner is a 60-year-old female who runs 27:00 minutes, and the next club finisher is a 70-year-old male who runs 28:00 minutes, his graded time of 20:49 places him ahead of her graded time of 21:30.  He would receive 15 points; she would receive 12 points.
