PRTC Weekly: 06/05/2017 Scott Coffee Results and More

Scott Coffee Results

Five PRTC members raced the Scott Coffee 8k this past Saturday and five walked away with brand new watches. In the latest Mid-Atlantic Grand Prix event, PRTC performed well thanks to winning performances by Sean Clark (1st Male) and Margaret Vido (1st Female).
Sean paced the field and took early control of the race. By the time he crossed the finish line he was alone with the lead car and claimed the overall win by more than 15 seconds. Mike and Kevin stuck to their 5:20 pace goal. Mike bettered his 2016 time by more than a minute and Kevin tied his 2016 time, coming in a few seconds after Mike. Justin was next in and served as the key 5th scoring member. Meanwhile, Margaret claimed a victory in the women’s field by over a minute.
Post-race all runners were presented watches for placing overall or within their age-groups and team mascot for the weekend, Jack the Westie (see social media post!), enjoyed belly rubs and much attention from kids relay runners. Nice job all!
Sean Clark: 25:56 (1st!)
Mike Vido: 26:28 (4th)
Kevin Brandon: 26:36 (5th)
Justin Simard: 27:14 (7th)
Margaret Vido: 28:12 (1st female / 11th overall!)
