Race Results

Utica, New York: Megan Feehan attempted to beat the heat at the 38th Annual Boilermaker 15k in Utica New York this week. We're not sure she beat the heat, but she did place and run well in this historic and very competive race. Megan ran 1:02:57 for a 52nd place. Nice race!

Megan Feehan: 1:02:57 (52nd)

West Chester, PA: Carey Celata continued her work lowering the club 800m record at the Henderson All Comers Track Meet #2. Her 2:07.62 shaved another tenth of a second off her season best. This was at least the 4th time this year our 800m record has been broken! Carey faced a strong field and came through in third. Great work!

Carey Celata: 2:07.62 (3rd)
