Team Nebraska took 6th at this morning’s Shamrock Shuffle Elite Team Challenge in Chicago. David Adams 2nd Overall. The Good Mates had an amazing morning with our top 4 runners averaging 24:21 for the 8K race. David Adams blistered the course in 23:21 (beatingAbdi Abdirahman for 2nd), Luka Thor and Matthew Pohren both finished in 24:38, andMatthew Schneider was right on their heels in 24:44. Their combined time was :35 faster than last year’s winning time but were a scant :06 average out of the 5th place prize money this year. John Kern also competed as our traveling alternate running 27:50. Great competition bringing out great results, Giddyup!
I can’t say how proud I am of these guys for taking on the very best runners in the midwest and beyond. Hanson’s won both the male and female titles, complete results when available.
