Snowstorm Classic #3 - 10K

 Peter Maksimow and Kelly Heroux Repeat on 10K Course
Zofia Turosz Gains Another Age Record

            Twice 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.
            Richard Krupa outran the rest of the field for the show ticket in 37:04.  Vicente Rojas (39:04) 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.  
            Kelly 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. GSH teammate Meghan Lynch again placed second, and 1st junior, with a solid 43:56 effort while Amy Warrington took the bronze medal in 45:32.                      Hartford 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.
