Waterville’s Schwartz Runs the Cigna Elliot 5k

August 20, 2016

Congratulations to Waterville Valley’s running machine, Rene Schwartz who ran a personal best in the hot and humid Cigna/Elliot 5K Road Race on August 11th!

The Cigna/Elliot Corporate 5K Road Race is in its 24th year.  It’s the largest road race in New Hampshire, and one of the largest 5K road races in New England.

Rene claims he had to rush to get to 20:03 – a very respectable time which placed him 7th in his age division and 100th overall out of nearly 4,000 runners.  Close to 6,000 runners had signed up for the race, but the heat index scared a large number of them away.
