57-year-old CRR Bruce Weber ran the Run for Kids’ Health 5K in Wilmington last Saturday but didn’t know that the race’s major competitors would all be in his age group (50-59). Fortunately, his 5K times have been consistently in the mid-19s lately.
In this particular race, the top three of 115 finishers were all age 50-59. The winner, Jorge Morales, a 52-year-old from Wilmington, ran an incredible 18:43 to win the race. Weber placed second in a time of 19:27, winning his age group by virtue of Morales having taken the top prize. Placing third overall and second in that age group was 58-year-old Greg Cauller in 19:42. Not bad for a bunch of seniors.
