Roy Cope was right on the money at Tuesday’s Atomic City Roadrunners’ pace race.

The Atomic City Roadrunners club held its second pace race of the season Tuesday on the dirt road going through Lower Bayo Canyon at the bottom of Main Hill Road.

Cope walked the 1-mile course, along with his dog, but still managed a perfect predicted finish time. Two other predictors — Shana Cooper and Ashley Mamula — had adjusted prediction errors of just three seconds, which would’ve won a lot of pace races.

Tuesday’s race featured two course lengths, one mile and three miles.

Other top predictors Tuesday included Stan Kosiewciz (24 seconds off) and Ron Selvage (27 seconds off).

The fastest finisher on Tuesday’s long course was Michael Jablin (20:28). Cuihuan Wang was the fastest female finisher on the 3-mile course (36:08).

Mikolaj Klimczuk (8:50) and Ruby Selvage (11:24) set the pace on the 1-mile course.

The next pace race, the Canyonlands Run, will start at 6 p.m. Tuesday from the Los Alamos County Ice Rink.

The race will include a 1.3-mile course and a 3.2-mile course. The race, according to the Roadrunners, is not suitable for strollers due to the steepness of the trails.
