Racing in Williamsburg; Colonial Road Runners Club Puts On Some of the Best Races in Virginia
In town to meet with lawyers in order to help an injured cyclist and to feed two dozen William & Mary students, Doug Landau also found time to participate in another wonderful Williamsburg Virginia area running race. The 21st Annual Queens Lake 5K Run at New Quarter Park was put on flawlessly by Rick Platt and the Colonial Road Runners Club. This Colonial Road Runners Grand Prix Event benefitted the Colonial Road Runners Scholarship Fund
Looking for a fast time after last week’s lackluster performance, lawyer Landau hoped to take advantage of the flat out-and-back course with loop into Queens Lake residential neighborhood. Like other Colonial Road Runners events, the Queens Lake 5k was contested in a scenic woodland setting along asphalt paved roads near the Colonial Parkway, in York County. The 5 km course was USATF certified 5K and billed as “one of the fastest courses in the Williamsburg area.” While managing to average exactly 7 minutes per mile, Landau was runner up in his age group. There were quality runners in every division, so the Herndon Reston area lawyer did not even crack the top 20 !
