Wow. It was a busy weekend for Team Newton.

Things started off bright and early with the first-ever Newton Sunshine Hill Climb in Boulder on Saturday. Eighty hearty runners showed up to test themselves on the 5.8 mile course that basically climbs straight up – 1,800 feet of elvation gain pain. Endurance athelete extraordinare and local Boulderite Travis Macy now owns the course record, finishing in a blistering 39:37. Stephen Gartside, Newton’s president, finished in an impressive 49:17. Full results here. All in all, the race was a terrific success in its first year.

On Sunday, the Newton crew was in Denver for the Colfax Marathon. Newton put together a corporate team consisting of  Stephen Gartside (pres), Ian Adamson (Product Dev.), Paul South (Newton Running Lab), Jerry Lee (co-founder & CEO) and Sara Nelson (Newton Running Lab).  The team finished as one of the top corporate teams in the relay division (the relay results are mysteriously missing from the race website). Bob Weiner, age 44, took second place in the Colfax Half Marathon in his Newtons.
