PRTC Weekly: 05/07/2018 Broad Street Recap and More

Broad Street Recap

Philadelphia, PA: This year's Broad Street Run was a big event for PRTC. We had 36 members complete the race, 12 more than last year! We're pleased the club continues to grow and grateful to all who have recently joined. Of course, increased numbers makes presenting a detailed race report quite difficult. Instead, we offer just a few highlights:

PRTC's Men's Team had a large contingent at the race with 27 finishers. Duriel Hardy (new to the club; familiar to many on the SRT and Franklin Field) made an exciting return to racing. He claimed first Philadelpian with a fantastic time of 49:31. Josh Hibbs, similarly broke the 50 minute barrier for the first time by a comfortable margin placing 14th in this year's very deep field. Paul was third man in for PRTC. He relied on his, "rarely reliable/commonly disastrous long distance race strategy of running as fast as possible for as long as possible." It paid off handsomely this year as he was rewarded with a sizable PR.

Margaret led the way for PRTC's Women. Her 4th place finish was also good for Top Philadelphian giving PRTC the sweep in the category. The performance was especially impressive considering it came just a few weeks removed from the Boston Marathon. Chrissie was 2nd in for the club and also made top 10 with a fast time of 58:41. Meghan and Kinjal both broke the 60 minute barrier and Kylie and Lauren came in just over 60 minutes. A good sign of fitness for both and also top 25 overall!

Thank you to Chrissie Ramsey for following up her stellar performance at Broad Street by hosting a fun after-race party at her Fairmount home. It was great to hear war stories from everyone, enjoy healthy and not-so-healthy refreshments, and inevitably end up at the Green Room for an after-after party.

Apologies we aren't able to fully detail everyone's races. If anyone would like to share their experience, please feel free to send a race report to the Men's or Women's email lists. Congrats to all who had PR's and positive results!

To all: Please take a look at our updated race calendar. We're looking forward to our next Grand Prix event, the Scott Coffee Run in June. Also, it's never too early to start thinking about XC season or a fall marathon!
Hope to see everyone out this Sunday for our long run!
