|Bay of Fundy 10K Road Race Champions|
To make this happen, I decided to go after the Bay of Fundy 10K team championship with a team of local athletes designed to succeed at all levels. The summer has been a good one for the Downeast Duck Hunter and the legion of Downeast Destroyers. The road race team currently is 10 strong with a variety of runners specializing in either ultra marathons to 5K races. I'd like to thank Isaac, Shelby, Kassie, Harry, Evan, Garrett, Devin, Pete, and Kelci for making our endeavor one to remember.
In two team events, our squad has won both events including the most recent Machias Wild Blueberry Festival 5 mile run.
Our tentative plans for next year is to break up our team into all three divisions of the Bay of Fundy (marathon, half marathon, and 10K) and see how the Destroyers make out. We also will be launching a staunch title defense at the Wild Blueberry Run as well.
Here's a few photos of our team which lives by the Downeast Destroyer code, "do not lose to the owner, coach, and president of operations". Translation, I'll be pushing everyone to do better.
