CRR Bruce Weber and CRR Bill Rose have been 5K competitors in the senior brackets for the past several years, but they probably hadn’t faced off virtually until two weekends ago. Well, they both went at it, albeit in different locations at different times, in the Blue Hens Virtual 5K.
Luckily, they were also in different age groups for this “race”—Weber, the younger of the two, in the rather unique 46-59 group and Rose in the 60-and-overs. Each won his respective age group.
Weber, running at the Wilmington Friends School track, came in at 20:42, while Rose, running at the McKean High School track, was just 17 seconds back in 20:59. Each had no real competition within his own age category, so it is only fitting that their times should be so close.
Guys, we trust that you either had accurate watches or that someone else was timing. In any case, well done!
