Good running weather accompanied 32 runners and walkers on Tuesday night’s pace race that started and ended at the Los Alamos County Ice Rink.
Five runners achieved estimated running times with an error under 25 seconds. Best predictor was Laura McClellan (9 sec.), followed by Heidi Bjorklund (18 sec.), Liz Mcdonald (21 sec.), Nikol Strother (22 sec.) and Roy Cope (24 sec.).
Fastest female and male runners on the one mile course were Patricia Burnside (8:59) and Paul Elkins (14:12). Fastest female and male runners on the 3 mile course were Strother (21:22) and Bill Rice (24:13).
Next week’s pace race will be at 6 p.m. on the Canada del Buey trail in White Rock, just off Meadow Lane west of Chamisa Elementary School.
The Atomic City Roadrunners (ACR) is a family-oriented walking and jogging club that meets every Tuesday April through October for a pace race in which members predict their own time. Anyone can choose to walk or run for one mile or three, and the slowest walker can be a winner if his or her finish time is closest to that predicted.
