As stated on its Web site, the Parkway Run is “held annually to raise much needed funds for helping to cure cancer in children.” The race receives great sponsorship from many of the biggest companies in center city Philadelphia. Many people come out to support the cause. The guys and girls at PRTC are no exception here.
Six PRTC members came to the Parkway Run to support the cause and stretch out their racing legs. Ross used the race as a perfect short distance tune-up to the Steamtown Marathon. Ross won the men’s race with teammate Rob Hewitt placing 7th overall.
In the women’s race, Claire Duncan ran a solid race to finish second only to Canadian Olympian Carmen Douma Hussar. Finishing in successive even-numbered spots, Shannon Klick cracked 20:00 for fourth place, Clarisse finished in the six spot, and Shannon took 10th place overall.
