For the second time in three weeks, there was a perfect prediction at the pace race.

Ted Williams finished Tuesday’s 3-mile course calling his finish time perfectly.

Tuesday’s pace race, held at Cañada del Buey Trail in White Rock, attracted 24 runners and walkers. Pace races are held weekly during Daylight Savings Time hours and are organized by the Atomic City Roadrunners.

Williams beat out David Kratzer and Kim Selvage, who were both 21 seconds off their predicted finish time Tuesday. The prediction error was adjusted for Selvage, who competed on the 1-mile course.

Cuihuan Wang (23 seconds) and Ron Selvage (51 seconds) were other close predictors Tuesday.

The fastest runner on the long course was Michael Jablin, who finished the 3-mile race in 20:01. On the short course, Derek Selvage was the fastest finisher, posting a time of 10:49.

The next pace race will be held Tuesday starting at the Los Alamos County Ice Rink.
