the spring equinox 8k is one of a handful of local afternoon races (such as the rye derby 5 miler, harry chapin 10k, and scarsdale fall foliage 5k, to name a few). it's a hilly, lollipop out and back course (covering some of the same new canaan roads as the 4 on the 4th of july race).
on a day when i did my morning in tights, it was sunny and warm enough to switch to shorts by the start. in other words, it felt like winter in the morning and spring in the afternoon. i haven't run this race in a couple of years, but was pleased with the 35:40, a 7:11 pace.
here are race results from clubct.
update: as joe pointed out to me last night, the rye derby has been moved to a late morning start! and, last year, the scarsdale fall foliage 5k went on hiatus (but should return this fall). so i should replace the rye derby with the hastings-on-hudson 5k/10k races :O
