Weekend Results

At the Music City Distance Carnival track meet in Nashville on Saturday night, Brandon York posted a phenomenal 14:33:27.  Here was his race recap...

"On a super muggy night in Nashville, I ran a PR in the 5k at the Music City Distance Carnival track meet.  We (Josh Whitehead) took it out hard the first two miles (4:35.8, 4:37.4), then kinda faded a bit the last mile (4:46.6) together before he dropped the hammer on me.  I ended up running 14:33:27 and placed 4th overall which was pretty good considering I was seeded 12th!"

In Priceville, Alabama at the PCRA 5km, Julia Clark was 5th overall and top female with a 20:18.
