By The Staff

It was a tough night of predicting for the pace race runners Tuesday, but Dan Rees made the best guess of the race.

The New Pipeline Gutbuster course in North Community made for difficult predictions in Tuesday’s pace race. Only five runners finished within 50 seconds of their projected finish time, only one of which came on the 3-mile course.

The pace race is a weekly event hosted by the Atomic City Roadrunners.

Rees had an error of just 11 seconds to earn the victory.

Rees finished ahead of Daniel Romero (15 seconds), Alexander Romero (34 seconds) and Ben Rees (36 seconds).

Ben Rees was the fastest finisher on the 1-mile course with his time of 8 minutes, 13 seconds. Sarah Kratzer, at 13:57, was the fastest female finisher on the short course.

On the 3-mile course, Alexander and Daniel Romero tied for the fastest finish, both clocking a 27:41, while Diedra Witherell had a 29:51 to pace the female runners on the long course.

The next pace race will be held Tuesday at Power Line Road.

The start is approximately 3.2 miles south of the intersection of N.M. 4 and Pajarito Road. Race time is scheduled for 6 p.m.
