The Strawberry Canyoneros sent 11 rock-and-rollers to the Golden Gate Park cross country race where they encountered a deep field in all races. Mei Tung-Chen continued her Ms. Consistency streak with a solid 27:46 mark on the undulating 4.14-mile two-loop course in the women’s race.
The men’s masters race had two Berries, including new Canyonero Kevin Downie who hails from Scotland. He went out very hard but did not finish, and we’re still trying to sort out what happened to him (possible strain).
Bill Brusher hammered home as the 3rd (or thereabouts) 60-64 age grouper in about 29:00 and change.
The open men brought eight to the line and ended up 6th overall in a field that may have been more stacked than last year’s PA-USATF championships. Sean McFarland paced the men, and the men’s team took sixth. Ghiliat Ghebray won the overall race in 19:47.
