2013 PCVRC DDC 15k Recap (Tom Steenkamer)
The USATF club challenge fall series kicked off this past weekend with the 31st running of PCVRC’s signature event, the Delaware Distance Classic 15k. 16 USATF club members took up the 15k challenge and set out to conquer the distance and humidity. It felt more like a summer day with the humidity hovering around 80% and temperatures in the low 70s. Thank goodness the cloud cover remained throughout the race (Last year race time temperature was in the low 50s.)
While I personally dislike racing in the humidity, the majority of the race team were undeterred as the results indicate. A special shout out is given to the best water stop/splash zone on the course, Jim Steele’s Ursuline Field Hockey crew, who provided a much needed cool down heading into the last mile.
In the USATF Age Graded results, PCVRC had three women and seven men place in the top three in their age groups. In the club challenge competition, PCVRC scored 402.125 to squeak out a first place finish over Greater Philadelphia who accumulated a team score of 401.313.
