On March 24, 2013, Ben True put together one of those dream races in a distance runner's life, and took sixth in the World Cross Country Championships. On a tough course, with cold, snow, a tough hill and terrible footing, True, along with Chris Derrick, finished in the top ten and lead the US team to the silver medal, and a huge upset of the Kenyan WC team, which finished third.

Ben True is a distance coach's dream, with a background in cross country skiing, cross country running and track and field. Last year, in 2012, Ben ran Personal bests at 3,000m (7:44.1), 5,000m (13:20), and 10,000m (27:41).

Ferguson,_Richard.jpg___3.jpgYou have a big race planned, your training has gone really well, and you know you are prepared physically. You have probably run the race over and over in your head already. It’s as if you have run the race even before you get to the course. You have envisioned speeding up that tough hill, being out in front of your closest nemesis, feeling great all the way to the finish, and simply, just having a great race. You have your strategy all planned out and you know exactly how you want your race to go.

IMG_0056.JPGIn its 33rd year, the RRCA (Road Runners Club of America) Club Challenge was about due for some good weather after years of cold, dreary start lines -- and on Sunday, February 24th, 2013, local runners were shocked and pleased to line up amidst sunny skies and cool (but not too cool) 42-degree air.

Though the weather for the 2013 race had changed, the race course’s reputation as a “crazy hilly course” had not. Runners were eager to tackle a series of steep hills among a windy, wide course -- and compete for their local running club with each step.
