Victoria's Fundraiser

Thanks to everyone who participated in our annual RNST team fundraiser on Sunday January 13th. A total of $1300 was raised, simple by team members and friends dining at Victoria's on that day. Funds from this event help to support maintenance of the ski trails in Quarry Hill and Essex Park.

Many thanks to Kristin Sorenson who organizes this fundraiser, and to Victoria's restaurant for their generosity. 



RASC Road Biking Survey

RASC's Road Cycling Committee is working on providing safe and fun rides for all athletic cyclists in the Rochester-area. We've been asked to consider some enhancements this year and wanted to gather your input. Matt Lynch has generated a small survey to get feedback from club members on what they are looking for in club rides in 2019.

If you have not already responded to this survey on Facebook or Google Group, please take sometime to respond to this small survey!

Here is the link to the on-line survey

Filthy 50

The 2018 edition of The Filthy 50 lived up to it's name, and then some. Epic weather conditions and a badass group of 533 gravel enthusiasts made for a legendary day. Documentary film maker Nicholas Kapanke was on course capturing the carnage. He chose to put these few clips to a humorous tune by Breakmaster Cylinder to give the viewer an idea how insane the day looked through his lense. Oh, he also nabbed a few riders "catching the crapper".  Out of the 533 Filthy riders who took the start, about 40 were RASC riders.. Enjoy!



2018 Tour de Essex Results


Temperatures in the mid 30's and winds gusting to 30 mph greeted runners as they gathered for the Tour de Essex trail run on Saturday, October 20, 2018. Sunny skies took off a bit of the edge as the runners started their 7.45 K sojourn through Essex Park in Rochester.

 

Three runners bounded up and down the relentless hills under a 7 minutes per mile pace. Joey Keillor led all runners in a 6:16 min/mile pace with Danny Whipple cranking out 6:26 minute miles and Spencer Moul finishing with 6:34 min/mile pace.


Barbara Swenson finished first among women and 5th overall with a 7:17 min/mile pace. Barbara's pace is the fastest pace among women in the history of the Tour de Essex. The next women across were Lindsey Carlson with a 7:42 min/mile pace and Leah Karsten at 8:31 min/mile.


Congratulations to all of the runners who came out and endured the challenging hills of the Tour de Essex!
