Race Results

Philadelphia, PA: Multiple PRTC members took part in a loosely organized mile race at Franklin Field early Friday morning. The so-called Bodega Mile kicked off at 7:15 AM. With November Project cheering us on Kieran ran away with the win. He recorded a very solid 4:16. Paul crossed the line next, notching his quickest mile in several years. Nick, Alec, and Harrison (roommates with Kieran at the "Bodega") fought for the remaining positions with all coming in comfortably below 5 minutes.

Look for some of these names next week in the West Chester mile!

Kieran Sutton: 4:16.2
Paul Matuszak: 4:36
Nick Tuck: 4:39
Alec Brand: 4:42
Harrison Schettler: 4:48

Colin McGrath: * Dropped after a speedy 800.
