Kibrom Temelso, born in Ethiopia now a Boston resident, charges up Bear Cage Hill in the USATF New England Championship where he was the first man on the club team that placed third. But since he is not yet a US citizen, along with a dozen other GBTC members, he is not allowed to represent the club or compete at all in the National USATF Club Cross-country Championships.

The Greater Boston Track Club (GBTC) is a friendly and competitive team with approximately 200 members. We compete at the national, regional, and local levels in cross country, track and field, and trail running. GBTC provides a team-oriented, structured training environment for athletes of many abilities who train for everything from jumps and throws to sprints, road races, cross country, and marathons. Members train for several specific competitions throughout the year, and financial support is provided to compete at some major events. We sponsor athletes based on a tiered system of performance standards, and the club is a designated USATF Elite Development Club.
