USATF Club XC @ Golden Gate Park


LRC Racing made the trip to the USATF Club Cross Country championships for the second straight year. This year’s race took place in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco, where over 400 men competed in the men’s open “A” race.  When all was said and done, the team improved upon last year’s finish by placing 39th out of 59 teams in the “A” race.

LRC was led by Cole Marolf who capped off a great fall season, despite being in med school, to run 32:26 and just barely miss placing in the top 150 of the race. After Cole was Ryan Dostal (33:28), Trevor Vidlak (34:10), John Gunderson (34:13), Andrew Jacob (35:19) and Brian Wandzilak (35:28). The scoring average time for the team was 33:56.

In addition, Cole’s time placed him ahead of both Nick Symmonds and Alan Webb in the field, which will be a fun icebreaker story wherever he goes.

This race pretty much wraps up the 2015 year for LRC Racing! Many exciting things to come in 2016, with hopefully a larger than normal presence on the track!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!
