On a near perfect day for racing in Nashua, NH, the Gate City Half Marathon, Marathon, and Marathon Relay races went off without a hitch. We had legion rep Mike Giberti on site documenting the race via tweets and video coverage centered on the half marathon, which was the fourth race in the NH Grand Prix Series.

For the half, Six03 Endurance’s Derrick Hamel pulled away for the win in 74’08, which is a new course record on the men’s side. Not to mention Derrick had ran the Big Lake Half the day before, where he cruised to an 81’50 finish to grab some extra points in the Will Run for Beer Series. Brandyn Naro (76’03) and Steve Hammar (76’51) were the 2nd and 3rd finishers.

Gate City Strider Lindsay Close took home the women’s half marathon title in 89 minutes, 51 seconds – a dominant performance over the rest of the ladies in the field. 2nd and 3rd overall were garnered by Arika Zielfelder (92’58) and Greater Derry Track Club’s Gini Nichols, who’s 93’17 performance at 57 years old age grades to an incredible 75’12.

For the marathoners, it was Matt Meagher taking the W and new course record in 2 hours, 45 minutes, 41 seconds. Wesley Dinnan finished as the runner up in a solid 2h52’29 with Greater Lowell’s Jason Bui two minutes back from Dinnan to place 3rd.
