Race Results

Wow, a ton of them over the weekend. Let's get to some of the highlights:

One of the fastest marathons* (in part because it's a huge net downhill (*that is, unless you hate downhills), the Steamtown Marathon in Scranton, PA, boasted a good handful of Brooklyn runners. Daniel Blausey had a net time of 3:11:25, making him the top Brooklyn male finisher. Maggie Deschamps led Brooklyn women with a 3:40:05.

And then, of course, there was Chicago, where the fastest marathon on U.S. soil was run. Pretty friggin' awesome. The results are here, but right now it's not letting me search by city and state.

Closer to home, the Staten Island Half Marathon boasted almost 4,000 finishers on what was a picture perfect day for the 13.1 mile race. Jorge Eliecer Real smoked the field with a 1:10:04. Sarah Foster finished second overall for women with a 1:28:39.

Kirt Joseph led the way with a blazing 16:30 at the Get to the Point 5K, which boasted 449 finishers. Miriam Beyer dominated the women's field with a 19:21.

No immediately seeing any official/unofficial results for the Restoration Plaza Bed-Stuy 10K. Some rumblings out there that there were some problems with directions on the course, which may have caused some problems (and added some distance.)

The fall weather is here, and so is racing season. Congrats everyone who laced on shoes over the weekend - and good luck to those who are gearing for competitions in the coming weeks.
