Masters Distance Running Events [non-USATF]- August - December 2015.

January 1 2016. My main focus is on USATF Championship races but there are other important races too. As with my earlier report on non USATF races this is a look at some of the more significant road races run over the last five months of 2015. Not all races are included; my apologies if one of your favorites is missing. I report Masters athletes who are known to me; for those I do not recognize, 85% or higher is needed. In general times are reported if they age grade at 80% or higher. 90% or higher is in bold; 85% or higher underlined. Age group finish is 5 year unless otherwise indicated, age grade in brackets.

  1. all right, everyone's a critic, but you left me out of the crim 10 mile results. i'm pretty sure i scored 86.56% age grading, just ahead of my teammate jerome :) ....

  2. Hey, Man--So sorry--And sorry i didn't pick this up earlier--But even now if you go to the CRIM website results and look at placings for the 45-49 year age group, they list Jerome first and no mention of you. *But* when I search for your result by last name I find that you did, indeed, come in ahead of Jerome and have age listed as 47. So why aren't you listed first in the placings too? A mystery. I'll fix this now and apologize that it was up wrong for so long.
