Weekend Race Results (11/13-11/19)

posted by Scott Martin

Fellow Runners,

Racing for Saturday, November 18, began in the Marin headlands at the North Face Endurance Challenge.  Clayton Kleppinger and Joann Helmus ran the steep marathon, Joann taking third in her age group.

Meanwhile, in Tempe, Arizona, Cary Craig took on the Ironman Arizona Triathlon.  She was hit by another bike only 10 miles into the ride portion and took a nasty spill.  After dusting herself off and fixing her bike, she finished the race in 12:22 to win her age group.

Closer to home on Saturday was the Davis Turkey Trot.  Ki Lee led GVH in the 5K, followed by Peter Friederich and Megan Ransdell.

Mark Murray finished seventh overall in the 10K with 38:58, winning his age group.  Marrie Argentine Chen won the women's race with 40:17.  Susan Gentry took third in her age group and Bruce Fisher won his own.

Speed coach Brendan Ward took fourth in the half marathon with a sizzling 1:19.  Michael Fan and Ed Ballerini each won their respective age groups, with Ed achieving a two-minute PR.  Bingbiao "Eric" Fang, Terry Smiley, Cristina Ramirez, Jane Sykes, Christina Dicker, and Allison Alcalay all placed in their respective age groups.  For Jane, this was her first race back after a long recovery from knee cartilage replacement surgery and a metatarsal fracture.

GVH fielded a smaller but still steadfastly scrupulous contingent of pacers for the half marathon.  The award for finishing closest to target time goes to Daniel Martin Saez, who came in less than 2.5 seconds away from his goal.

Sunday saw the Cross Country Championships at Golden Gate Park in San Francisco.  Pam Runquist, Joannie Siegler, and Nicole Aha led the women's team.  Jim Farrar, Craighton Chin, and Mike Johnson led the masters men.  And Zach Bonner, Ben Godfrey, and Steve Andrews led the open men.

Weekend Race Results (10/2-10/8)

posted Oct 16, 2017, 8:15 AM by Scott Martin

Fellow Runners,

First, we have two missed results from October 1st: Allison Alcalay ran the Bridge to Bridge 12K in San Francisco.  That same day, Jose Zaragosa and Michael Pate won the Urban Cow Half Marathon as a two-man relay dubbed "The Gun Show".

On Saturday, October 7, Martin Sengo ran the Bay Ridge 100K and Jeff Steele ran the Bizz Johnson 50K, taking third in his age group.

Craighton Chin sent this report on the Willow Hills Cross Country Open:

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Willow Hills has 14 hills over a 5K trail, was specifically designed for XC, and is the site for the San Joaquin section championships.  The hills are just long enough to take you out of your stride and steep enough to reward those who can fly down with abandon. Pam Runquist looked like a youngster as she flew along at 6:33 pace to take 11th place overall. Open women placed third and the senior women took second place. Of significant note in the overall standings for the season, Joannie #1 in the 60+, #3 in the 50+, and #4 in the 40+ age groups.  

The open men race was dominated by Strawberry Canyon, which are recruited young guns from the Berkeley Hills, ex-Cal elites, sponsored now by Peets Coffee, and blasted rap music next to our tent. The winner of the open men's race, a SC runner, ran 5:07 mile pace. Not far behind, Mark Felice ran a blazing fast 5:35 per mile pace. The open men placed SECOND. Super seniors took third place. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

On Sunday, October 8, Mark and Joann Helmus ran the Great Trail Race up in Truckee.  Mark won his age group and Joann took second in her own age group.

At the Chicago Marathon, Stephen McSorley led GVH with a finish time of 3:12, followed by Angie Hart in 3:25.  Erin and Matt Perry finished together in 4:40.

At the Portland Marathon, Cathrine Lemaire ran the half in 1:52, earning a PR and taking third in her age group.  Mike Lemaire and Steven Shaffer ran the marathon.

At the San Jose Rock and Roll Marathon, Christina Dicker ran both the 5K and the half, taking third in her age group at the 5K.  Bingbiao "Eric" Fang ran the half as well.
