Running: Tuesday’s race has staggered start times

By The Staff

Darla Thompson had the top predictions in this week’s Pace Race.
The Pace Race, a weekly event hosted by the Atomic City Roadrunners, was Tuesday starting at Piñon Park in White Rock.
Tuesday’s race was a staggered-start event. Participants with the slowest predicted times began the race first, followed by the predictors with the fastest times.
Thompson was just two seconds off her predicted finish time on the 1-mile course, topping the next-closest predictor, Bob Weeks, who was nine seconds off. There were four other participants — Richard Thompson Jr., Jackie Marr, Lynn Kluegel and Duane Marr — that finished within 16 seconds of their predicted time on the 1-mile course.
On the 3-mile course, Isolina Viloria, Ted Romero and David Kratzer all finished with a 26-second prediction error.
The next Pace Race will be 6 p.m. Tuesday starting near the roundabout at the Diamond Drive and San Ildefonso Road.
