A Super Weekend

Tallahassee, FL : Colin Leak represented PRTC on the national level at the 2018 USATF XC Championships. Despite a lengthy absence from XC, Colin made the transition away from the roads with ease. He covered the 10k course in a very fast 30:55 good for 24th overall. Great racing Colin! Excellent start to the new year!
