Open Men

Woodrow Wilson Bridge HM 1:03:50, 10K = 28:58

This year two races kept pace with the Army 10 Miler for elite running. At the Virginia 10 Mile in late September our runner-up Seraw Kebede was only fourth overall in 49:04. That was ahead of Girma Gebre’s 49:48 for ninth overall there. Last fall’s champion Chris Kwiatkowski slowed more than a minute at Army to 49:08 which was 12th overall and it earned him third place in the division. On the weekend between these two monster races, Gebre came roaring back at the Woodrow Wilson Bridge HM, winning in a photo finish Gosa Tefera at 1:03:50 to snatch the title for the fall. Eighth place Lucas Meyer was there racing home in 1:07:29.

Seraw Kebede affirmed his runner-up spot with two excellent half marathons. At Parks, he won it all in 1:06:04 at the start of the season and capped off the season finishing second at the Battlefield HM in 1:06:15. Kwiatkowski won it all at the Veterans Day 10K in 30:11 ahead of sixth place Paul Thistle (31:13). Thistle also marched home at Army in 50:35 ahead of seventh place Chris Graff (50:57), ninth place Leoule Degfae (51:23), tenth place Thomas Adams (51:27), 12th place Bryce Livingston (51:33), and 13th place Sam Luff (51:43).

Landon Peacock gets fourth place racing the Clarendon Day 5K to victory in 14:37, ahead of 11th place Michael Franklin (14:57), and adding a second overall at the Run for the Parks 10K in 31:05, and ahead of Lucas 31:31. Kevin McNab was tops at the Clarendon Day 10K in 30:37 ahead of Thistle’s 31:28. McNab also added two more overall wins including the Race for our Kids 10K in 31:28.

Fifty runners made the Open Division with 9 coming from other divisions.

Virginia 4 Mile 18:57, 10K = 30:18

This fall has one of the smallest totals ever. Josh Fournier gets an easy win, running the Mustang 5K in 16:28. As usual for teens, his second race was well off this time though it was an overall win. Same goes for runner-up Benjamin Werve who ran the Neptune Festival 5K in 17:52. Third place Jimmy O’Hara ran the Run for the Parks 10K in 37:22 ahead of fifth place Donovan Foley (37:59) who was the most prolific runners with four races. O’Hara was the only other qualifier with an overall win.

Army 10 Mile 50:57, 10K = 30:39

Chris Graff laid down his claim at the ZERO Prostate Cancer Challenge 10K in 31:43 as an overall win. Runner-up David Wertz had a very nice Clarendon Day 5K in 15:19 to close. Then in October they met head-to-head at the Army 10 Miler and Graff won the battle royally in 50:57 to Wertz’s 53:26. Wertz passed on the favor in November at the Veterans Day 10K that he won in 32:23. That was ahead of fourth place Chris Shaw (33:40) and seventh place David O’Hara (33:56).

Third place goes to Matthew Lofton for his overall win in 15:41 at the Care2 Cure 5K. Sixth place Travis Boltjes was an overall winner in one of his four 5Ks, with a best at the National Press Club 5K in 16:14. Fifth place Victor Flemming won one of his three 5Ks out right, including his Mulberry Island 5K in 16:15. He also won two 8Ks as well, including the Ford’s Colony in 27:07.

Marine Corps Marathon 2:25:42, 10K = 31:16

Patrick Kuhlmann was looking to steal the division with a sizzling 15:39 at the National Press Club 5K. It looked pretty good when Michael Wardian started out with a Brain Aneurysm Awareness 8K overall win but in just 26:07. Also Philippe Rolly’s overall when at the Sprint for the Cure 5K was a pedestrian 16:31. Wardian eased past them at the Parks HM in 1:11:13. Then he greedily ran both the Clarendon 5K and the 10K. The 10K in 32:13 was well ahead of Kuhlmann’s Run for the Parks 10K in 34:06 and his 5K in 15:18 put away the division.

Rolly tried to pry it back open with a very nice Army 10 Miler in 53:24 ahead of fifth place Noah Zaring, who ran 56:47. Then the marathon man brushed that aside with an excellent Marine Corps Marathon in 2:25:42. That was quite a bit ahead of fourth place Conrad Orloff who ran 2:41:50. Orloff takes his spot, fourth, at the Navy-Air Force Half Marathon in 1:14:35. Sixth place Karsten Brown had ten age groups, including his overall win at the Heroes Run 5K in 16:39.

Twenty-nine runners made the division.

Marine Corps Marathon 2:36:19, 10K = 33:33

Runner-up Alexander Hetherington had four excellent races starting with a third overall at the Perfect 10M in 59:04. That same morning division champion Steve Kartalia was finishing second overall his home town Bachmann Valley Half Marathon in a swift 1:15:28. A week later Hetherington finished the Woodrow Wilson Bridge HM in 1:19:17. The next weekend Hetherington ran a solid Army 10 Miler in 58:48, ahead of fifth place Stephen Craig’s 1:00:14. That same morning on the same hilly course as the Bachmann Valley (and hills) race, Kartalia was winning it all at the Frosty Pumpkin 10K in 35:26. Kartalia added icing to the cake finishing second overall at the Across the Bay 10K in 33:36.

Craig Chasse has been getting faster and used to winning. He was second overall at the FCA 5K in 17:10, in front of sixth place Scott Mersiowksy’s 17:45. The same day Kartalia was crushing on his jaunt over the bay, former champion Andres Wright was continuing his comeback with a very good Veterans Day 10K in 36:01 to take fourth in the division.

The division had twenty-three qualifiers.

Veterans Day 10K 35:57

Mark Neff won at the Parks HM early in the period with 1:20:08 ahead of fourth place Dave Berardi (1:20:54) and surprising runner-up Paul Jacobson (1:22:30). While Berardi followed the next week at the Race for our Kids 10K in 37:55, Jacobson had a breakout race at the Veterans Day 10K in 36:09 to finish just behind Neff’s 35:57. Third place Jean Christophe Arcaz was next there in 36:15.

The week before that at the Rockville Arcaz had bested former champion David Haaga at the Rockville 10K 37:15 to 37:23. Haaga earns eighth place in the division just behind another former champion Brian Daugherty who did win it all at the Feed Annapolis 5M in 29:37.

Fifth place Chris Northup ran the Care2 Cure 5K in 17:42, the fastest 5K of the period. Sixth place Martin Goode went long with a metric marathon, followed by the Baltimore Half Marathon in 1:22:02.

Twenty seven runners qualified for the division.

Walk to End HIV 5K 16:51, 10K = 35:09

Henry Wigglesworth starts gearing up seriously and the rest of the division is helpless. He almost always races in Washington and the courses are flat and fast. In September on his toughest course, he ran the National Capital Hydrocephalus 5K in 17:22. Third place David Wild had the next fastest 5K in 18:26 on the swift National Press Club 5K course in 18:26. Wigglesworth busted 17:00 at the Walk to End HIV 5K in 16:51. That is the first sub 17:00 time since former champion Stephen Chantry did that in November 2010. Henry upped his 10K to 36:02 at the Veterans Day 10K. Runner-up Maurice Pointer had the third fastest 10K in 38:34 at the Race for our Kids 10K.

Dan Lawson had three 5Ks wins to slip into fourth place, including the Mathew Henson 5K in 18:57. Right behind him in fifth place is Andrew Cutler who ran the Yorktown Battlefield 10 Miler in 1:05:39. David Lovegrove is sixth with the 10K Run Through History in 39:58 with Mike Meadows right behind him at the hard to gage Run for the Ribbon 5.9K in 23:44.

Twenty-five runners made the division.

Parks HM 1:29:08, 10K = 40:26

Even with a dozen new runners in the division, it was the smallest in a long time with just 41 runners. Last fall three runners were faster than a 40:00 10K, this year none. The title was closely contested. Alan Pemberton wins the fastest time at the Parks HM in 1:29:08 against Bill Raabe’s Navy-Air Force Half Marathon in 1:29:22. Different courses but when they ran head to head at the Veterans Day 10K Pemberton prevailed 40:50 to 42:26. Bob Becker squeezes in between them with his Anthem Wicked 10K in 40:36. He also had three 5Ks and a Yorktown Battlefield 10 Miler in 1:08:33 faster than Raabe’s 10K.

Fourth place Harrison Grayson had the fastest 10 miler at Army with 1:08:09. At that event is gets funky because net times determine age placement in the race. We use gun times and would only defer to place in very close finishes. Thus Ken Krehbiel gets seventh running 6th place at Army in 1:11:03, Bill Loomis gets eighth running 5th place at Army in 1:11:12, and Lew Goldberg gets ninth running 4th place at Army in 1:11:28.

Larry Ferrens was one of those rare runners who ran the Great Allegany 15K downhill thriller and it was not his best race. He earns fifth place with his Gulf War Memorial 5K in 20:27. Malcolm Senior had two difficult, rolling half marathons and excelled. His best was the Herlocker Bachmann Valley in 1:34:23 to also clinch the 60-64 title in the Maryland RRCA State Series.

Forty-one runners made the division.

Run for the Parks 10K 41:26

Jason Page is seventy now but he made a last stab at the title the fall. He finished third overall in one race and had his best effort at the Green Circle Fall Fitness Fair 5K in 20:58. He may be the only one to challenge Jim Noone in the next division. Mick Slonaker started modestly, as he does in most of his races, running the Let's Go Hoco 5K in 21:40. In November he warmed up bolted past Page and runner-up Bill Hart with his excellent Run for the Parks 10K in 41:26. That time would have qualified for the 50-54 division.

Hart, from the Tidewater region, was solid all period starting with a Neptune Festival 8K in 34:30. He had his best race towards the end, racing the Anthem Wicked 10K in 42:43. Fourth place George Carrigan beat seventh place William Pardee at the Peroni Crawlin' Crab HM 1:39:37 to 1:41:09. Both finished well behind Hart’s excellent 1:34:12.

Sixth place Ronnie Wong is known for his long distance running with 16 marathons so far this year. Still, he showed surprising speed in his five 5Ks. His best was the Victoria Gastro Pub 5K in 21:53. A place ahead of him in the standings, Walter Allen ran the Virginia 4M in 28:19.

Twenty-two runners made the division.

National Press Club Beat the Deadline 5K 20:20, 10K = 42:25

Nobody can stay with Jim Noone. His seventh best time, a warm up for the Army 10 Miler (1:12:34), was the Boo! Run for Life 10K in 46:24 and it would have won the division last fall. He had already run the Perfect 10K in 44:02 and he would lower the year’s best 10K to 43:51 at the Run for the Parks race in November. None of this was as big as his first race to start the period winning at the Press Club 5K in 20:20.

Last fall’s champion Ben Dyer stayed very good with the next four fastest races, including the fastest 8K at Ford's Colony in 37:12 and the fastest 4M at the Children's Hospital of Richmond in 29:49. Malcolm O’Hagan takes third place after racing Army second behind Noone in 1:24:06 while Harold Rosen ran the Run for the Parks 10K behind Noone in 51:56. Both were the second best races for these men. Rosen had run the Parks HM in 1:49:46 to take the early lead with O’Hagan catching him in a near “photo” finish in November at the Veterans Day 10K in 49:49. Fifth place Jim Bullock ran the Tahoma 5M in 39:49.

Montpelier 5K 24:38, 10K = 51:23

John Elliott started the season smartly with the fastest race at the Montpelier 5K in 24:38 which ends with the final quarter mile on grass. He waited until November to get his second qualifier. Last fall’s champion Doug Morris had all five of his races done sooner, including his Bluemont Fair 10K in 52:49, albeit three minutes slower than 2013. Third place Stan Neumann had his best qualifier at the ZERO Prostate Cancer Challenge 5K in 25:42. Bill Sollers took fourth place with four 5Ks, including the Walk to End HIV 5K in 26:04. Maynard Weyers was not far behind racing St. Rita’s 5K in 26:35. Sixth place Chan Robbins made his bones with two solid 10Ks.

Bob Gurtler had a car accident and recovered in time for a mere 18 races during the period with ten age group wins.

Twenty-one runners made the division.

National Press Club Beat the Deadline 5K 26:40, 10K = 55:38 Executive Stampede 5K 26:40, 10K = 55:38
