Maksimow and Kelly Heroux Repeat on 10K Course
Turosz Gains Another Age Record
the distance simply meant twice the fun for Peter Maksimow and Kelly
Heroux as both runners repeated their winning ways from last week.
Of the two, however, Mr. Maksimow had the tougher time of it as
the CMSer again raced a game Carlos Rivera who not only forced the
pace throughout the ten thousand meter footrace but opened up a twenty
meter gap at the 6K mark. Hitting
splits which havenít been seen since Sandu Rebenciuc blitzed the
course in 32:57 four years ago, the two rivals left the outcome in
doubt until the finishing footpath when Peter edged ahead for good,
crossing the line in 33:33. Carlos
príd in 33:39 narrowly missing an elusive age record, this time the
33:35 set by then 30 year old Celio Hernandez some 21 years ago.
Krupa outran the rest of the field for the show ticket in 37:04.
took home both the master (over 40) and senior (over 50) titles while
GSH teammate Art Roberts captured veteran honors in 42:57, both club
members crediting their Portland Meadows experience as the determining
factor in their success. Joe
Crooks was the first junior (under 20) in 43:03.
Heroux enjoyed the seasonal weather and dry roads for exactly 42
minutes and 56 seconds as she notched her second win in a row and
fourth lifetime Snowstorm Classic crown.
teammate Meghan Lynch again placed second, and 1st junior,
with a solid 43:56 effort while Amy Warrington took the bronze medal
Track Club star Zofia Turosz swept the womenís master, senior and
veteranís divisions with an impressive 50:25 tour over the course.
In the process the Polish native took nearly six minutes off
the course record for 66 year old women, erasing Connie Billís 56:23
standard which the GSHer set in 1993.
