B.A.A. Running Club was well represented with several high places among the top finishers in the 4th annual B.A.A. 10K on Sunday. B.A.A. High Performance athlete, Jen Rhines, led the way with an 8th place finish in 33:45 followed by Heather Cappello in 10th place in 34:26 to round out the Top Ten for the women. Heather’s performance is no surprise considering her strong showing in spring National Championship races including the Gate River Run 15K in March and the River Bank Run 25K in May.

In his first race since the Boston Marathon, Brian Harvey shook off the marathon dust and led the men’s team with a runner-up place in 24:19, seven seconds behind Team Run’s Jeffrey Vega. The margin of seven was also the difference in the team scoring with the men edging Team Run by a narrow margin of seven seconds. Eric Ashe trailed in 4th place (24:54), followed by Brad Mish (11th, 25:28), Sean Highland (21st, 25:54) and Nils Schallner (25th, 26:04) to close out the team scoring for the open men. Spring marathon training seems to be a good formula for shorter summer races with all five of the top B.A.A. scorers coming off solid Boston Marathon performances.
