H+P at the 2015 Re-Fridgee-8er

One of the coldest Februaries in history?  Not a problem for H+P!  We had an outstanding 2015 team debut at the 2015 ReFridgee8er.  

There were a few major accomplishments at this race never before achieved by the team!  Here they are:
  • This was the first time we have won both female and male races overall in the same weekend (Adam
    and Steph won the 8K, Sean and Andrea won the 8M).
  • Steph set a NEW club record in the 8K (30:57) which was also a massive PB for her. 
  • Adam Hortian was the first H+Per to ever break 26:00 in a team 8K, coming in only 6 seconds off his club record of 25:40.  
  • The 8M team (Sean, Luke, Greg, Aaron, Dave, Nick) was the first to ever have 6 runners within the top 10 of any race.
  • The 8M team has been calculated to be our 5th fastest team of all time according to our rankings system.
Now, here are the full results!

  • Adam Hortian won the race overall in an outstanding time of 25:46. 
  • Steph came in 1st OA for females, 5th OA in a NEW CLUB RECORD of 30:57.
  • Next in for the team was Jonathan Fugelsang with a massive new personal best of 34:32.  This brought him in 9th OA, and 2nd in his AG!
  • Simon had a great race, but seems to be missing in the results- stay tuned!
  • Paul was in next for the team in a time of 35:59, good enough to win his AG!
  • Kristin Marks had a breakthrough race, running 38:44 and placing 2nd in her AG!
  • Coach Sean won in 45:36.
  • Luke placed 3rd OA and won his AG in a new PB of 48:10!

  • Emily was in next for the team.  She also had a breakthrough race, placing 2nd OA with a time of 54:49.
  • Recovering from injury, Vicki came in treating this race as a tempo run.  She still managed a great result, placing 5th OA and breaking the 1 hour mark!
  • Helen had a great race, taking a huge amount of time off of her personal best, and placing 2nd in her AG! 
  • Don was battling a tough illness through this race, but still managed a great time of just over 1-hour.  
  • Derek used the 8M as a training day- but still managed an impressive 1:04 and won his first AG medal with the team!
  • Jessica had a great performance- she took 3 minutes off her
    PB and won her AG!
