Penn Relays & Weekend Results

Philadelphia, PA:  Franklin Field hosted the Penn Relays for the 124th time this past weekend. The event reached a peak attendance of 47,000 on Saturday. For PRTC, Kinjal and Lauren raced the lesser attended, but equally classic, Thursday Distance Night. They each ran in the Women’s Olympic Development 5k against a strong field. Kinjal ran very well dipping just under 17:30. Lauren ran in her first ever Penn Relays and completed the race in 18:41. Kinjal and Lauren will be back at it this weekend for Broad Street. Congratulations to both!

Kinjal Parikh: 17:29 (44th)

Newark, DE: Christine Eisenberg traveled to the University of Delaware to race on the track after nearly a year away. She returned to her favorite event and became the first PRTC member to race steeplechase in many years. She won the race in windy conditions and not much in the way of competition. Her time of 10:44 nearly broke the club steeplechase record, which was set in 2006 by Claire Duncan at the Penn Relays in 10:41.

Result

Christine Eisenberg: 10:44 (1st!)
