There once was a man called Vin
Who led NUCR to a win
Through determination, grit, and will
They travelled to Mechanicsville
Now last year’s trophy has a twin
NU Club Running had a triumphant performance at the National Championship race this past weekend! After months of training and competing in races across the Northeast region, the team travelled to Virginia to end the season with their best championship performance in the team’s history.
For starters, the Men’s team won the national title for the second year in a row! They won with a commanding margin of victory, earning just sixty points (a whopping 128 points ahead of the second place team). Six men in the championship race placed in the top twenty overall and earned All American status. Even more impressive, Cam Leonard continued his undefeated streak this season and placed first overall!
The Women’s team had a dominant performance too! The team placed 6th overall, their highest championship placement ever, and had two All American athletes.
The entire team is feeling grateful to see their hard work culminate in such a huge accomplishment. The team’s dedication to the sport and to each other’s success is certainly worth being proud of!
