Despite the incredibly warm weather this weekend, it’s no surprise the fields for the Flatirons Running Winter Classic XC were a little smaller than normal. That’s because many of the local elite athletes were just returning from training camps preparing for the Olympic Marathon Trials in two weeks. But that didn’t stop former CU Buff teammates and training partners Joe Bosshard and Andy Wacker from taking it to each other on the challenging cross country course at Harlow Platts Park this morning. Chris Leiferman rounded out the top 3 in the men’s field of 39. Earlier in the women’s race, Melissa Dock, Rachel Gioscia-Ryan, and Sarah Vaughn were the top 3 among the 22 women who ran.
