The start line for the 10 Mile race. Not just a sea of red anymore.
#3811 is 13 year old phenom Seth Hirsh. He would run an incredible 55:46 to finish 7th overall. That’s 5:36 pace folks.
The start of the 5K was more of the blue and yellow to challenge Peter Falcon of Team Nebraska. #4826 Tom Nichols was the overall winner (16:06), Peter would be 2nd in 16:53. Lincoln Running Co. Racing took 3 of the top 4 spots.
Jason Zakaras (5th, 55:22) has been demonstrating crazy fast fitness and a sense of humour all spring long. Here he fronts my old buddy Kyle Smith (6th, 55:33) of Broken Bow. Kyle has returned to Nebraska after a two year stint training and attempting to make the USA Olympic Pentathlon Team.
Seth Hirsh was an amazing 7th overall. Here he is leading Team Nebraska studs Brandon Wissing (8th, 56:07) and Nate Stack (9th, 56:12). Christopher Gruenhage of Brookings, SD would round out the top 10 in 56:51.
