Last weekend was the annual Circle Trot 2k, 5k and 10k races in Plymouth, NH. Kudos to the White Mountain Athletic Club for being Circle Trot sponsors – and runners – for years.
Congratulations to WMAC GM Rene Schwartz for kicking butt in the 10k, placing second overall with a time of 38:01. Chris Schwartz ran the 5k and was first in his division and fifth overall with a time of 20:12.5. Arpie Beaman ran the 10k and placed a very respectable 25th overall with a time of 52:19.2.
Proceeds from the Circle Trot support the Circle Program in Plymouth. This nonprofit organization provides adult and peer support and mentoring for girls from low-income New Hampshire families. The Circle Program provides these girls with opportunities to develop the skills, courage and confidence they need to handle the challenges in their lives.
