Kaiser Permanente Pike's Peek 10K 28:30

Off the top twenty-two times there were fifteen different racers. Nine races made up the top thirty-two times. Three of top four racers had two races in the top twenty-two. Nahom Mesfin won it all at Pike’s Peek in 28:30, ahead of third place Baisa Moleta (29:04) and fourth place Dereje Deme (29:09). Deme followed Mesfin to the Apple Blossom for his fourth best race in 30:20. Mesfin was second overall there in 29:18 negating Deme’s overall wins at the Dismal Swamp Stomp HM in 1:04:53, faster than Tim Young’s Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon in 1:05:09, and his runaway win at the George Washington Parkway Classic 10 Mile 49:47 ahead of fifteenth place Matt Barresi (51:00).

Young had already locked up second with a superb 47:45 at the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10M, ahead of fifth place Mark Leninger (49:09), tenth place Kieran O’Connor (50:31), eleventh place Conrad Laskowski (50:33), thirteenth place Chris Kwiatkowsky (50:46), and fourteenth place Christopher Sloane (50:58).

Back on the Pike, sixth place Getachew Asfaw was good at 29:47; ahead of Laskowski’s 30:24, as well as eighth place Ayele Kassaye’s 30:14. Robert Reynolds was the lone qualifier from the Ukrops Monument Avenue 10K in the top fifty times, running 30:00 for seventh place. Asfaw finished just ahead of ninth place Will Christian at the Dismal Swamp Stomp HM 1:06:22 to 1:06:59. Finally, twelfth place Dave Berdan won it all at the Frederick Half Marathon I n1:07:17

Seventy-two men made the division.

Ukrops Monument Avenue 10K 31:33

Tyler Cox-Philyaw got things underway with the fastest 5K of the period at the Treasure Hunt in 16:40. By the end of March, Callum Weinberg had rushed past for the title, running the Ukrops Monument Avenue 10K in 33:08. Sixth place Peyton Artz finished there is 35:32.

Back in Rockville, Greyson Strouse bested third place Itai Bezherano at Pike’s Peek narrowly 33:47 to 33:52. Bezherano added a solid Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10M in 57:27 to help him stay ahead of Cox-Philyaw who bolstered his credentials racing the Apple Blossom 10K in 34:10. Fifth place Thomas Selishev was next, racing the ten miler in 57:51.

Twenty-four men qualified for the division.

Kaiser Permanente Pike's Peek 10K 30:46

Last year’s third place finisher David O’Hara improved his best time at Pike’s Peek to 32:19 and dropped back a place to fourth as he was in the race. The top three there also met at the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10M the first week in April. David Angell led the way with a 51:41 that matched the best time from last year. David Wertz was next just ahead of Wilson Komen 52:48 to 52:51.

At the final showdown on the Pike, Wertz ran a wonderful 31:32 to take the third spot. David Angell ran the same 31:06 that Komen had run last year, matching his own ten miler exactly. Still, he had to settle for runner-up as Komen jetted to victory in 30:46.

Aaron Church, who was fourth at the ten miler in 54:52, won it all at the Devotion Mother's Day 4M in 20:38 to take the fifth spot in the division. Victor Flemming won it all at the Yorktown Victory Run 8 Miler in 43:42 to take sixth place. Meanwhile, Michael Wardian, a man caught between divisions, coasted through a marathon overall victory in a tame 2:44:44 before aging up. His masters win at the George Washington Parkway Classic 10 Mile gets him a second qualifier for the sub masters but the time which would have moved him up to fourth, if run at age 39, does not count.

Kaiser Permanente Pike's Peek 10K 31:37

Keith Matiskella finished second overall in all of his four worst races, including a masterful, Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon in 1:12:21 and a Devotion Mother's Day 4M in 20:52, both in May. None of those races would have got him in the top two. He needed a brilliant 52:59 at the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10M to take the runner-up spot behind division champion Philippe Rolly’s 52:38. Rolly had an even bigger gap at the Pike's Peek 10K in 31:37 ahead of third place Edmund Burke’s 32:37. Their rivalry goes back to 1999 to when Rolly, 26, first defeated the three time champion (1996-98) of the St. Patrick’s Day race that had been a 10K. Burke, 29, ran his fastest time there in 30:37 while Rolly won in 30:27.

Burke also ran the George Washington Parkway Classic 10 Mile in 56:05 which was second to Michael Wardian opening bid as a masters runner. Wardian’s 52:36 would have made a solid claim on the title with a second race.

Back in fourth place Mike Colaiacovo races the Ukrops Monument Avenue 10K in 34:18 ahead of seventh place Marc Warner’s 35:03. Newly minted master Karsten Brown takes fifth place, finishing third overall at the Police Week 5K in 16:42. Rob Mathes races the Charlottesville 10M in 58:21 to take the sixth position.

Twenty-five men qualified for the division.

Loudoun 8K 26:22, 10K = 33:27

Ray Pugsley aged up and continues with two overall runner-up finishes. At the Run for Haiti 5K he set the standard with 16:19. A month later he set the standard at the Loudoun 8K in 26:22. Our runner-up, Alex Hetherington, loves the 10 mile race. He started the first two days of the period with back to back Georgetown 10 miler on Saturday and Sunday. He improved from 58:21 to 57:10.

He was ready in April and raced the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10M in 57:05, ahead of third place Peter Keating’s 58:09. Keating would add a special Clyde’s 10K, third overall in 34:39 to solidify his position. Fourth place Daniel List had the next fastest 10K at Ukrops in 35:17 but won his spot racing the Anthem Shamrock Festival Half Marathon in 1:16:37.

Sixth place Steve Speirs ran his best at the Dismal Swamp Stomp HM in 1:20:15, while staying with the 8K at the Shamrock Festival in 28:58. Ninth place Steven Crago was lurking right behind at the half in 1:20:24. Speirs was surrounded by to more Cherry Blossom ten milers, fifth place John Zimmerman (58:42) and seventh place Ryan Wedlund (1:00:30).

Twenty-nine racers made the grade.

Anthem Shamrock Festival Half Marathon 1:15:31, 10K = 34:16

Doug Fernandez preempted the top races of April and May and snatched the division the early in March, winning the Anthem Shamrock Festival Half Marathon in 1:15:31. Then he popped a 35:22 at the Ukrops Monument Avenue 10K and the division belonged to him. In April, Mark Neff easily controlled the runner-up spot, winning the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10M in 58:08. Fourth place went to David Haaga in 59:47, a second ahead of Jean Christophe Arcaz. Sixth place was Frank Perna following in 1:00:03.

Neff also won at the Pike's Peek 10K in 34:56. Third place Dave Berardi ran 35:44 just ahead of Arcaz who ran 35:51. Arcaz’s time was slightly better than Haaga’s 10M but head-to-head prevails when the times are close. Michael Feinburg matched Neff for the second fastest 5K, running the Kelly's Shamrock 5K in 17:30 to take seventh place.

Then it went back to head-to-head with Thomas Jensen besting Christopher Rotunno at the 10 miler by a second in 1:01:02. Tenth place David Phipps tied Perna at Pike’s Peek in 36:47 and was placed ahead of him at the race but Perna’s 10 mile was fast enough for him to retain his sixth place ranking.

Forty-five men qualified for the division.

Scope it Out 5K 17:43, 10K = 36:57

A couple new names appeared on the leader board. Ryan Christopher aged up and took fifth in his age group at the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10M in 1:02:54. That put him ahead of Maurice Pointer who ran 1:03:17 there, one second faster than last year. Fourth place Samuel Hartwell ran 1:05:55. Christopher had already taken down fifth place Dennis Coleman at the Rock 'n' Roll HM 1:25:16 to 1:26:47 as well as Hartwell who ran 1:27:48.

The second new face was Mark Fiegner. Fiegner was tops at the George Washington Parkway Classic 10 Mile in 1:03:12 to take the runner-up spot. His other race was the Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon in 1:28:31.

Next on the hit list was Pike’s Peek. Hartwell edged sixth place John Chall 39:05 to 39:22 to confirm his spot. Eight place Dan Lawson was not far behind in 39:36. From the south, Andrew Cutler takes seventh place with Yorktown Victory Run 8 Miler in 51:37.

Twenty-four runners qualified for the division.

Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10M 1:05:00, 10K = 39:07

The division was again the largest of the four age group divisions with more than fifty qualifiers. Mick Slonaker got underway at the St. Patrick’s Day 8K in 31:53. He was second behind Alan Pemberton and ahead of sixth place Ken Krehbiel who has been winning a lot since turning sixty.

Look as if everyone went to the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10M to get that fast time. Slonaker won the crown and that race in 1:05:00. Bob Burns was third there in 1:07:53 to take fourth overall. Charles Morrow stayed ahead of Krehbiel 1:08:32 to 1:09:00. The week before Bob Becker had a solid Ukrops Monument Avenue 10K in 41:45 head of seventh place Rick Platt’s 42:36.

Becker moved up considerably racing the Permanente Pike's Peek 10K in 40:28 behind runner-up Charles Morrow who won that event in 40:00. Platt got moving the final weekend at the Red, White, and Blue 5K in 20:01 for the second fastest 5K of the period. Top 5K honors went to fifth place Bruce Wentworth who ran the Wine in the Woods 5K in 19:44

Ninth place Rod Smart finished ahead of Krehbiel at the Frederick Half Marathon 1:33:26 to 1:33:47. Cliff Anderson had a string of swift 5Ks, including the Lucky Shamrock 5K in 20:20 to take eighth place.

Fifty-nine runners qualified for the division.

Sadie's Run 5K 20:33, 10K = 42:52

Larry Coley looked as if he was going to run away with the top spot. Jim Noone was on injured reserve. Three of Coley’s four races were head-to-head wins past George Carrigan. At the Yorktown Victory Run 8 Miler he had his biggest lead winning 56:25 to 58:51. The first week of April at the Queens Lake 5K he was superb winning 20:39 to 21:12. Carrigan’s race and four other fast 5Ks was just enough to squeeze by Wilson Trueheart who had run Kelly's Shamrock 5K in 21:11 to take fourth place.

In May, Coley had his fourth sub 21:00 5K and that was enough to wake up the sleeping speedster Jason Page. Page matched Coley’s fourth best race at the Get Smart 5K on the next to last week. Then on the final day, he raced the fastest 5K of the year at the Sadie's Run in 20:33 to take the crown.

Paul Steele was third, racing the Race for a Better Place 8K in 34:35. Bobby Stevens started April at the J Brian's Tap Room 15K in 1:09:34 to take sixth place. Normally further up, Ronnie Wong took a break from his goal of a marathon in all fifty states to win the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10M in 1:15:32 to take seventh place.

Twenty-eight men qualified for the division.

70-74 Men

TowneBank Shamrock Festival 8K 36:44, 10K = 46:36

The dozen runners in the division are getting there last chance as Jim Noone turned 70 on June 8. Ben Dyer continues his onslaught. His 36:59 White Bank 5M was a mirror image of his TowneBank Shamrock Festival 8K in 36:44 the week before. That and his 22:25 Run for the D. O. G. 5K were easily enough to be fitted for a crown.

Runner-up Jim Bullock had the fastest 10K, running the new Roberts Mill race in 49:17. That was a minute faster than newcomer Walter Brown ran at the Pike’s Peek 10K. Bullock added the slightly longer than a 5K, McDaniel Pi run in 23:18. Third place Art Gregory did his best at another strange distance, the half metric marathon (8.15M) in 1:07:59. In mid May he bested Brown at the Germantown 5M 39:35 to 40:22. Terry Anderson takes fifth place racing the Martha Jefferson 8K in 39:56.

75-79 Men

Frederick Half Marathon 1:51:21, 10K = 50:31

John Clarke made an early move with the only 5 miler of the period. (There were seven 8Ks.) His Forest of Needwood race in 43:33 is without flat surfaces. The following morning Stan Neumann ran an excellent Anthem Shamrock Festival Half Marathon in 1:56:04 to push ahead. He would later add to quick 5Ks in May such as the Packard Center Fiesta 5K in 25:18.

John Elliott started with Mind, Body, & Soul 5K 26:10. In mid May he improved to 25:10 at the Wine in the Woods 5K to make the decision for Neumann to stay in the runner-up spot a tough one. Clarke, meanwhile, made it easy to win the title with a spectacular Frederick Half Marathon in 1:51:21.

For fourth place in this competitive bunch it was again a photo finish, Maynard Weyers had the fastest time by a second ahead of Chan Robbins, running a Crystal City Fridays 5K in 25:57. Robbins, ran the Palio Di Siena 5K, added two more races faster than Weyers only other race. Then he piled on with six more age group wins to ease ahead of Weyers.

Twenty-seven men qualified for the division.

80 & Older Men

Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10M 1:30:17, 10K= 54:19

At age 82, George Yannakakis is having a revival. He crushed the division with the top nine times. Six of those races were better than his best from last year. Two qualify him from the 65-69 age group. The first day he topped last spring’s champion Jack McMahon’s best race at the St. Patrick’s Day 8K 44:16 to 49:26. The next week He scored big at the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon and still had the juice for fast back-to-back ten milers, including the Credit Union Cherry Blossom 10M in 1:30:17.

The next week while he ran the 10 miler, third place Larry Dickerson ran the George Washington Parkway Classic 5K in 30:52. The division had 83 times raced for a total of 6797 race years to show these guys do not quit.
