GBRC produced yet another big race winner over this past weekend. GBRC Newton is proud to announce that staff member Eric Ashe won the USATF New England Cross Country Championships hosted at Franklin Park on Sunday.
Eric finished the 10k course in a time of 30:49.99, winning by 7 seconds over his fellow B.A.A teammate. Eric’s B.A.A team won the overall team competition as well going 1 2,3,4,8 in the team standings.
When asked how he made his move to win the race Eric said, “Well I opened up a lead going up bear cage which I wasn’t even meaning to do. Then I figured I’d push the downhill and see what happened, and I ended up getting an even bigger lead.”
After separating himself, Eric never looked back and took the victory for his first post collegiate New England Championship victory. Next up for Eric’s B.A.A team is Club National’s in Oregon in early December. Check back here for race results!
