New England Walkers very own Maegan and Nolan Allen of Arlington, MA each competed the 1 Mile Race Walk at the New Balance Indoor Championships last Saturday. The race was held at at The Armory in New York City, and included the top high school race walkers in the nation.
Maegan placed 6th with a 7:22.43, setting a Massachusetts and New England scholastic indoor record, in a talented field where the national record was broken by Ashleigh Resch of Ohio. Nolan finished his race with a respectable 7:54.82.
The New England Walkers would also like to recognize our local race walkers from Maine and Connecticut: Kayla Allen, Sydney Sirois, Spencer Dunn, and Jonathan Lazor for their participation.

The last section of the Rail Trail won’t be cleared of twigs and debris in time for the April 12th date, since this winter has been particularly brutal. Consequently, the Pepperell Rail Trail 8K has been postponed to Sunday, September 27th. We are hoping to make it a annual fall race in the future.
