Flash: GRC Women Take Clarendon 5k and 10k Titles, Reich Completes Impressive Double

The Clarendon Day 5k/10k is known for its mostly downhill course and the Pacers//GRC - NB harriers took full advantage with several impressive performances.

Maura Carroll started the day off on a high note with a victory in the women’s 5k, running 17:35. UPenn graduate Elyssa Gensib showed promise in her GRC debut by finishing 3rd overall in 17:54. Chelsea Bollerman and Hannah Rowe finished 4th and 5th respectively and all 6 GRC women finished in the top ten.

Stewart Reich ran a gutsy race in the men’s 5k to finish second in 14:45, which will put him 4th on the GRC all-time list for the road 5k. David Wertz also ran an impressive race to finish 4th in 15:31 and win the Master’s division. It was unfortunate that Clarendon did not feature a team competition as GRC took 8 of the top 12 places.

In her first race in a GRC uniform, Elena Barham made a big statement by winning the Clarendon 10k in 36:16. Keely Eckberg also put together a strong race, finishing second in 38:17. Amy Nichols finished 5th in 39:56.

Stewart Reich matched his second place finish in the 5k with a second place finish in the 10k; an incredible display of fitness considering the two races were only an hour apart. Carlos Jamieson, Phil Royer, and Zak Miller finished 4th, 5th and 6th respectively to round out a strong Clarendon Day 10k squad.

GRC Clarendon Day 10k winners savor their medals. #sendem
