Connecticut High School Class S Cross Country State Championships
Wickham Park, Connecticut

Image taken during the beginning of the October Nor'easter that shut the state down, putting about 800,000 folks without power. From the time the race started to when it ended some 18-20 minutes later, at least 1 inch of heavy dense snow fell - a rate of better than 3 to 4 inches an hour.

Some other images from the race:

This stood out to me when looking through your portfolio. The determination of the athletes is really showcased here. It's in such an interesting contrast to the heavy, dense snow, that it really makes the viewer want to look closer, and really study what is going on. Thanks for this photo.

Great shot. Such determination and depth. Taken on the day half of the houses in their state lost power?

Brave souls! Cross-country racing is hard enough without adding snow to the challenge.
