It’s official. Holt wins the 2012 Lancaster Mile with a 2.99% overall score.
The penultimate Lancaster Mile was missing some of the usual fanfare, but Holt remains in the lead with a 2.2% improvement and a PR of 6:38. There’s one more scheduled race set for 7:00pm on 8/24.
Today was another fast day for the Lancaster Mile. Although the skies threatened rain the course remained dry. Bundrick PRed with a 6:06, but Holt holds on to his lead in the percent improved category. Two more races to go before the fall hiatus.
Two runners came out for this week’s Lancaster Mile. Although there were no new PRs both times were more than respectable. Holt maintains the lead with a 2.2% difference between average and PR times. Bundrick is closing the gap, but probably not quickly enough to take the Lancaster Mile cup.
We will be running three more Lancaster miles (8/10, 8/17/824) all staring at 7:00. Those three races alone *could* be enough to make you a winner.
Three runners participated in the Lancaster Mile tonight. Although clouds threatened, the weather was actually reasonably cool for July in South Carolina. A speedy first-timer blew up the course record with a blistering 5:09. Another newcomer beat his predicted time by ninety-five seconds.
I made some corrections to last week’s calculations and, although the leader board hasn’t changed, the margins are a little slimmer. The overall title is still up for grabs and we’d love to see more runners participate.
Weather permitting, the next race is 7:00pm on Friday, August 3.
The forecast for this Friday is high temperatures and low times at the fifth running of the 2012 Lancaster Mile.
We’ll meet in the Dowling parking lot around 6:45 and start racing at 7:00. The course begins at the entrance to the parking lot and takes runners around the long Morningside loop, up the hill on Wilson and back to the parking lot entrance.
So far, Holt has the lead, but there’s plenty of time left for someone to challenge him.
Three runners participated in the four Lancaster Mile earlier today and all three set PRs for the course.
Holt maintains his lead with an almost 4% gap between his best time and his average time, but Holland showed some real pep today with a a 1.5% jump from her only previous effort. Bundrick is in a bit of a holding pattern, but he is chipping away at his times and is currently at a 1.7% PR to average rate.
The Lancaster Mile will be off next week (I’ll be out of town) but, weather permitting) I’ll hold races every Friday after that until at least August 24.
We’re still looking for the runner who can take down Holt in the overall standings.
The Lancaster Mile ran again today. Holt and Bundrick braved the heat to clock out some non-PR times.
Looking at the numbers, Holt continues to maintain the lead with a 2.4% improvement to Bundrick’s 1.8% improvement. I’m really looking forward to someone coming out to challenge him.
I know a lot of folks are racing tomorrow, but don’t let that deter you from coming out for the third Lancaster mile on Friday 7/6.
We’ll meet in the Dowling parking lot a few minutes before around 6:45 and start racing right at 7:00. The course begins at the entrance to the parking lot and takes runners around the long Morningside loop, up the hill on Wilson and back to the parking lot entrance.
So far, Holt has the lead, but there’s plenty of time for someone to challenge him.
Three brave souls showed up for the second running of the Lancaster Mile yesterday and, as was the case two weeks ago, all three beat their projected times.
Holt is currently in the lead with a gain factor of :03 (his best mile is three seconds faster than his average time), but no one has established an insurmountable lead and there’s lots of time left for new runners to show up and challenge those gains.
