The Petersen family ran away with top honors in the Atomic City 15-Minute Run.

This week’s pace race, sponsored by the Atomic City Roadrunners, was held Tuesday at Sullivan Field.

Mark Petersen won the male division by going 2.02 miles while his wife, Kimberly, was best woman traveling 1.78 miles. Daughter Lillian, 5, finished third with 1.43 miles.

Michael Jablin won the concurrent 1-hour run speeding 8.75 miles to best runner-up Ted Romero (7.95 miles) and third-place finisher and top female Laura McClellan (7.68 miles).

Runners also predicted distances with impressive accuracy. Prediction winners included Marin Kelly and Georgin Pedicini who were off by less than one-tenth of a mile.

Next week’s pace race will be held on the North side of N.M. 501, across from S-Site, about .7 miles before the Back Gate turnoff.
