Thank you to all who participated in this year’s Rock & Laurel 5K!
We are so grateful to the incredible sponsors, volunteers, and race participants who made this year’s Rock and Laurel 5K Trail Race a phenomenal success! Over 100 people joined us on the beautiful trail winding from the Applewild School campus through the stunning Crocker Conservation land. It was a perfect day: bright sunshine, moderate temperatures and a very enthusiastic crowd!
We are thrilled to announce that we raised just under $10,000 and which will be used for continuing NCLT’s conservation efforts.
Winners in each age category were:
- 29 and under: Courcelle Stark and Chauncey Beatty
- 30– 39: Leslie Nazar and Ben Howard (also the overall winners at the shortest time)
- 40 – 49: Jamie Pohlman and Tom Wodejko
- 50 to 59: Alicia McHugh and Robin Henshaw
- 60+: Rose Blanchette and Don Thompson
