I believe he also won the Mount Washington 7.2 mile race to the top last June 2019 (It wasn’t held this year). Eric is a beast!

That’s a race that’s on my bucket list but I’ll be lucky just to finish it upright under my own power.

Yes he won the Mt Washington race in 2019 and it was the fourth time (2006, 2008, 2013, 2019).
Eric is a Central alum.

Congratulations to Coach Eric Blake!

The news:
Eric Blake of West Hartford finished second at the Mount Washington Road Race in New Hampshire on Sunday, covering 7.6 miles up the mountain in 1 hour, 3 minutes, 53 seconds. Joe Gray of Colorado Springs won the race for the fifth time in 1:01:40.

Blake, 42, is the Central Connecticut State University track and cross country coach. He has won at Mount Washington four times, the last in 2019, and finished second six times. The race was canceled last year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
