This past weekend, runners ran the Sarah Bishop Bushwhack, the fourth of six races in the series. Previously run races were: Leatherman’s Loop, A Mild Sprain, and Where The Pavement Ends.
The Trail Mix score sheet pages are substantially shorter — we eliminated any runner with fewer than 2 races who can’t complete the series with just 2 races remaining (Run The Farm and Raven Rocks Run). The series requires four completed races to have your totals scored.
Jerre Skeats took over the lead in the female category with her performance in the Sarah Bishop Bushwhack. Mary Ann Cox (F50 leader) is second overall, Tracy Lawrence-Black is 3rd. Lindsey Obrig (F30 leader), and Teren Block round out the top 5.
Kori Krichko (F20) is coming on strong, winning the last two races overall. If she continues for the Run The Farm and Raven Rocks Run she will be hard to catch. Tiffany Carson leads the F20 category while Lamorna Coyle leads in the Juniors (14-19) category. There are no eligible runners in the Kids (13U), F60, and F70 categories.
Gerry Sullivan kept himself in first overall in the men’s division with a second place finish in Sarah Bishop. Charles Glass is 3 points behind and leading the M40 category. Todd Henrich and Eamonn Sullivan (Gerry’s son) are just a few points behind them. Eamonn leads in the 13U category. Lee Willett (M50 leader) rounds out the top 5 overall men.
Michael Diblasi leads the M20 category with Dave Lesser in control of the M30 catefgory. James McGough (M60), Charlie Stewart (MJr), and Tony Godino (M70), are all tops in their categories.

For the Trail Mix Trail Series there are TWO more races to go at this time:
- Run The Farm (10/25/15)
- Raven Rocks Run (formerly Fire Tower 10k) (11/15/15)
To compete in the series, you need to complete four of the six races. If you complete more than four, we only take your best four races so you can potentially eliminate your lowest point score. At this point you need to have at least two runs completed in order to compete in the series for 2015.
Runners who complete the series by completing at least 4 of 6 Trail Mix races are eligible for automatic selection in the Leatherman’s Loop 2016 Lottery in January 2016. With the Loop celebrating its 30th year, this will be a hot ticket!
Scoring is done using a points system which is described here.
