Leprechaun Chase 10k – 2015 Edition


After a winter that included several track races from various individuals on the team, the majority of LRC runners took to Mahoney State Park Saturday afternoon for the annual Leprechaun Chase 10k run.  The weather was quite different the cold we dealt with this past month.

The women’s race shook up the existing Top 10 charts as both Bridget Easley and Shelby Tucker made their debuts in the yellow and blue of LRC Racing.  Bridget finished as the second overall woman in a time of 36:54.53.  Not far behind Bridget was Michelle Paxton (4th OA, 1st AG) in 37:11.8.  Rounding out the top 10 of the race was Shelby Tucker (5th OA, 1st AG) in 37:48.54 and Hayley Sutter (7th OA, 2nd AG) in 38:54.19.  Frankie Petersen and Ann Bauermeister both competed as well with Frankie placing 3rd in her age group and Ann 2nd in hers.  Bridget, Michelle and Shelby know represent spots 2, 3 and 5 on the LRC all-time Top 10 Charts.

On the men’s side, Ryan Regnier was the lone LRC athlete placing in the top 10 (8th OA, 1st AG) as he crossed in a time of 33:52.67, which moved him up to 9th on the Top 10 Charts. Other runners included Chad Sellers (2nd AG), Logan Watley, Brian Wandzilak (2nd AG), Andrew Jacob, Derek Sekora, Austin McKillip and Craig Christians (1st AG), respectively.

The next big race for LRC Racing will be the Lincoln Track Club’s State Farm Race in Lincoln and Shamrock Shuffle in Chicago.
