3 people score. Last year 7:30something (2:30+ x 3) would have finished in 5th place. I think if GRC placed in the top 5 it would be pretty super. I would be leery of diving up our forces and making two teams. Too many "unknowns" happen in a marathon and it'd be difficult to cast who would run on which team.


1. Transports adidas Racing Team 7:08:10
2. Boston Athletic Association 7:19:54
3. Philadelphia Runner Track Club/Puma 7:22:26
4. Greater Boston Track Club 7:25:42
5. Nike Central Park Track Club 7:59:04
