It was a big weekend for Team Newton athletes with races across the globe. We’ll be posting race results and recaps throughout the day, but let’s start with one of the longest races of the weekend…

Newton Running Lab manager Paul South and Newton president Stephen Gartside were part of a 10-person team for the 12th annual Colorado Relay.  The “Robe Runners” took first place overall in the 170-mile relay race from Georgetown to Carbondale with a time of 19 hours and 35 minutes.
