Though the Philadelphia Flyers are out of the playoffs, there were still some Creek Road Runners who were definitely flying down Broad Street yesterday, taking no prisoners in the annual Broad Street Run Ten Miler in Philly.
CRR Bill Farquhar led the way with a stellar 59:45, finishing in 194th place in the field of about 50,000 runners and placing 3rd in the 50-54 age group! This sub-6:00/mile performance legitimized his tactic of saving energy last weekend during the Delaware Marathon Relay. His performance yesterday at Broad Street age-graded to an 82.4, which is considered “national class.”
Our newest Creek Road Runner, 25-year-old CRR Jo Baird, tore up the course in a fast 1:05:34, finishing an amazing 69th among all women and 553rd overall.
Following after Baird were 51-year-old CRR Keith Crispin, who ran a 1:06:51, and 67-year-old CRR Doug Repetti, who posted a 1:23:45, each a terrific time for his respective age.
