Name: Erin Corcoran
CRSS Race for Hope participant since: I’ve raced every year.
1) What is your connection to the Capital region? I moved here in 2003 from Buffalo, NY to be closer to family. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law were already living here and since I’m originally from Philadelphia, the drive home to see my parents is a lot shorter than it is from Buffalo.
2) Who or what is the inspiration behind your participation? Sue Britain is my inspiration, as well as the inspiration for the Race for Hope. I love having this opportunity to celebrate Sue in this special way. Getting together with her family and friends at such a great event has become a tradition that I look forward to every year.
4) Any advice for a new CRSS Race for Hope participant? Have FUN! The course is a bit challenging, but the fast downhill at the end always makes for an exciting finish.
5) You turn the last corner and the finish line is in view, the best reward you could find waiting for you is my family! They are always right there at the end. This year will be even better because my nephew will be there. I guess technically he was there last year, but this year I’ll get to see his cute little face when I cross the finish line.
(Seeing a time under 19:00 min would be nice too*).
*Editor’s note: Erin is pretty darn close to that 19:00! Fast, faster and…
