Here's a note from Tom Buckley, the race director:

"On a crisp Autumn day, 93 hardy harriers took to the woods of the West Hartford
Reservoir complex to tackle the 8K terrain of the HTCís Cross Country Challenge.  
The registered field of 100 runners was a record turnout by over 20%!  This race is 
the final leg of the USATF Grand Prix cross country series.  This year the course 
was free of any downed limbs or stream crossings, so it was only the sneaky rocks 
hiding under the leaves that posed any issues for shaky ankles.  Masterís runner 
Oscar Barreto broke away from a 3-man pack after the 2 mile mark to win in 28:09, 
setting a new masterís course record.  In the process, he lead his Athleteís 
Foot/HiTek Open Menís team to victory.  Bet Krasemann of Suffield also had no 
trouble with the undulating course and was the top womenís finisher in 32:55.

"This yearís winners were again treated to the culinary delights of our HTC 
Secretary Kelly Burns, who graciously filled in last year as race director while 
this director was on a sojourn to SE Asia.  Kellyís pumpkin pies and other 
delectable treats were enjoyed by all, as were her special HTC insignia socks given 
to the age-group winners.

"Special thanks to the always wonderful volunteers that make this a fun and 
successful event every year.  Helpers included Kelly and her Mom, Abby Doolittle, 
Anola Phothiraj,  Brigitte Boltz, Paul Rabenold, Bob Gemske, David Reik, and El Presidente 
Peter Hawley.  And finally, thanks to Will Graustein and his faithful canine 
companion Lucy for his excellent timing services.  More pictures and complete race 
results can be found on Willís website: www.greystoneracing.net ."
