Middlefield resident Peter Schulten placed third in a 10K benefit race in Middletown over the weekend. The seventh grader at Frank Ward Strong School was one of 200 people to participate in the MxCC $cholarship Road Race last Saturday in Middletown, which was broken up into three separate running events: 4K, 5K and 10K.
Schulten, who turns 12 on Halloween, clocked in at 43:55 in the 10K race, or 6.2 miles. He has competed in a number of competitive races over the past year, some of which you can see in a blog by his mother and Patch contributor, Jennifer Schulten. Some other Durham and Middlefield residents ran in the above races. Here are some of the highlights:
