Running: Goldman is top predictor

-A A +A
By The Staff

Aaron Goldman was the best predictor on a tough course to predict during this week’s pace race.

This week’s pace race, which is hosted by the Atomic City Roadrunners, was the Gravel Pit Grunt, held near S-Site off West Jemez Road. The Grunt’s 1.3- and 3-mile courses consisted largely of a gravely road with plenty of grass and weeds which obscured the course markings.

Goldman finished with a 53-second error on his predicted finish time on the long course.

While a 50-plus second error isn’t usually good enough to win the weekly prediction challenge, Goldman won Tuesday’s competition comfortably. The next-best prediction was made by Jackie Marr, who was 94 seconds off. Other top predictors Tuesday included James Jablin (111 seconds), Ted Romero (112 seconds) and John Ullman (126 seconds).

Jablin was nipped by twin brother Michael Jablin for fastest finish on the 3-mile course Tuesday. Michael Jablin finished in 23 minutes, 5 seconds, just one second ahead of James Jablin.

Erin Powers was the first female finisher on the long course, posting a time of 40:46.

On the 1.3-mile course, Daniel Romero was the top finisher with his time of 9:39. He was followed by Ben Rees (12:37).
