Alexander Romero was the top predictor at this week’s pace race.

The pace race, a weekly event sponsored by the Atomic City Roadrunners, was held Tuesday at American Springs Road. Tuesday’s race included both a 1-mile and 3-mile course.

All this week’s top predictions were made by runners on the long course.

Romero finished the race with a prediction error of just 12 seconds on the 3-mile course Tuesday. Romero topped Michael Jablin, who was 20 seconds off, and Karen Thom, who finished 30 seconds off.

On the long course, Jablin was the fastest finisher with his time of 20:40. Romero was the next-fastest finisher (21:14).

On the 1-mile course, Bob Weeks posted the best time (15:35). Inez Ross (17:11) was the fastest female on the short course.

The next pace race will be held Tuesday starting at Piñon Park in White Rock. Race time is 6 p.m.
