Volte Shows Well in 2016 Texas 10 Series

A lighter weekly recap follows as most of Volte’s runners ran either the Chevron Houston Marathon or the Aramco Houston Half Marathon.

From a team perspective, Volte finished tied for fourth in the Ten Gallon Club Cup competition of the 2016 version of the Texas 10 Series with the Cypress Running Club.  It netted our group $250.

The complete standings follow:

1. Herbalife Running Club, $1,000, 59 points.
2. Seven Hills Running Club, $750, 51 points.
3. Black Girls Run Houston, $500, 50 points.
4T. Cypress Running Club, $250, 48 points.
4T. Volte Endurance Training, $250, 48 points.

Five of our folks will be drinking from these cups for awhile!

Individual award winners in the Series’ Armadillo Cup competition included five Volte runners.

Finishing second in their division and earning $125 each were Hope Jimenez (F30-34), Chris Weir (M30-34) and Jerritt Park (M35-39).

Taking home checks for $75 each as a result of a third-place finish were Derek Bailey (M35-39) and Alfredo Gonzalez (M60-64).

Thank you to everybody in our group that supported Volte in the Texas 10 Series’ competitions.

We'll have a solid group in Boerne on Sunday morning, January 29 to kickoff Texas 10's fifth full year of operation.  (There was one race in November 2012.)

Individually this past weekend, John Trocko and Becca Holt traveled to Bulverde to participate in the San Antonio RoadRunners’ Endurathon 25K on Saturday, January 21.

John won his 45-49 age group and was seventh overall with a 2:05:38 finish (8:05 pace), while Becca was fourth in her 40-44 division in 2:21:45 (9:07 pace).

Volte friend Jon Walk ran the Lake Grapevine Runners and Walkers’ Bold In The Cold 15K on Saturday in Grapevine, finishing in 1:36:13 (10:19 pace), and then followed on Sunday in Waco with a third-place age group showing at the Miracle Match Marathon 10K.

He crossed the finish line, which ends after crossing the Brazos River over Waco’s famous Suspension Bridge, in 1:02:44 (10:07 pace).

Jon often blogs his race reports.  They can be found here (Grapevine) and here (Waco).
