  • Last Sunday’s Lehigh Valley Health Network Via Marathon turned out to be quite the disaster. At mile 7, a slow-moving train held up runners for up to ten minutes as it steadily made its way across the marathon course. Stephen Wo, Perry Anderson, Selina Satoko Highstein and Richard Hildebrand were among those runners. In spite of everything, they all still managed to finish in a very respectable time. Steve (3:06:51) placed 21st OA and 5th in his AG. He followed by Perry (3:29:11); Selina (3:48:54) and Richie (3:51:52). Congratulations guys for still giving your best effort in such an unfortunate situation!
  • Chandler Rainey placed FIRST OA for the women at the Lake Placid Classic Half Marathon, finishing in a time of 1:27:00.
  • Scott Batten (23:56) placed 3rd in his AG at the Front Runners New York 14th Annual XC Meet in Van Cortlandt Park.
  • At the Sunnyside Post Mile, Jenna Moulton placed 2nd for the women and 10th OA, finishing in a time of 5:55.
