Tuesday’s pace race, a weekly event sponsored by the Atomic City Roadrunners, was held at Big Rock Loop on North Mesa. There were 20 runners and walkers competing in Tuesday’s race.

Romero, running on the 3-mile course Tuesday, had a perfect finish-time prediction of exactly 21 minutes. It was Romero’s first pace race of the season.

Ted Romero had a 20-second prediction error and Chip Cooper were among the other top predictors on Tuesday’s 3-mile course.

Cooper was the fastest finisher on the long course with his time of 19:27.

AJ Makela, age 12, was the first finisher on Tuesday’s 1-mile course, finishing in a time of 9:55. He was followed by Mark Makela (9:59) and Chris Cooper (10:24).

The top female finisher on the short course was Lauren Bucklin (10:49), while Pam Erickson was the top female finisher on the long course (26:31).

Bucklin also had the top prediction on the short course (57 second adjusted error).
