Twice a year Grounded Running Beaufort hosts a 3-Mile Open Time Trial and invites running clubs from all over to join in on the fun. We score the event Cross Country style by taking the overall performances from each team and scoring the top 5 runners. The team with the lowest overall total is deemed the winner. Team Captains submitted their runner’s times and GPS data for verification.
This year we had 10 teams from two different states represented. The Beaufort Track Club (BTC) filled 4 teams this year and we ran our time trial on the Beaufort Middle School track on Tuesday May 28, 2019. The starting temperature for the event came in at 93 degrees with a real feel of 103. Stephen Noble finished first with a time of 17:51 for the BTC and we saw several runners with overall improved times including one new Personal Best by Christy Steen in a time of 22:43.
