Eneas Freyre is known as a top triathlete. But with the roads snowed under this winter, he’s turned his talents to running, with good results.
Sunday, he won his first race of the Boston Buildup Winter Series, pulling away from Tim Milenkevich on the final hill and going on to record a 29-second victory in 1:11:48 for the hilly 12.4 miles.
But more important, Freyere moved into first place in the overall series standings, leading Milenkevich, last year’s Series champ, 6,092 points to 5,955. The standings are calculated using a computer program that awards points based on a runner’s time, then weights each race so the best is multiplied by four, next best by three and so on.
The series, which is in its 33rd year, concludes in two weeks with a 25K run from Silvermine. A record field of 324 runners completed the race from Southport, eclipsing the old mark of 305 set in 2003. Complete results and series standings are posted on the Club Connecticut website.
