Running: Klimczuk is the top predictor

-A A +A

Many runners and walkers were befuddled by this year’s Gravel Pit Grunt Tuesday.

The Gravel Pit Grunt, a mainstay on the Atomic City Roadrunners’ pace race circuit, was run in reverse this year, which threw off many of the predicted times.

The race is held near S-Site at Los Alamos National Laboratory.

Tomasz Klimczuk was the top predictor at Tuesday’s race, missing his predicted finish time by 25 seconds. Jackie Marr was the next-best predictor at one minute off, followed by Charles Ferenbaugh (1:06 off) and Anya Gonzales (1:14 off).

On the 1.3-mile course, the fastest finishers were Theodore Petersen, at 15:40, and Kimberly Petersen at 15:42.

On the 3-mile course, Ted Romero was the fastest finisher once again, posting a time of 24:07. Christie Kelly was the fastest female finisher on the long course with a time of 28:22.

The next pace race will start at Rocket Park in White Rock. It will start at 6 p.m. Tuesday.

For more information about the race, call 672-9519.
