2018 Cherry Tree 10-Miler & Relay Race Recap

Race: Cherry Tree 10-Miler & Relay When:  February 18, 2018

Where: Prospect Park, Brooklyn, NY

We don't call this the Race for the Hardcore for nothing! We never know what the weather might be for the weekend before Presidents Day. In 2016, it was the coldest weekend of the year and in 2017, the weather was positively balmy. What would 2018 bring? We thought we were in the clear when a last-minute winter storm blew in the night before. Fortunately for the runners, it was simply a light fall of snow and the course was cleaned up in time for the race. We were on!

Here are some of the standout PPTC performances for the Cherry Tree 10-Miler & Relay.
