CHASE CALKINS WINS LUNCH HOUR 5K IN 19:08

     Chase Calkins won the April 9, 2012 lunch hour 5K with a time of 19:08 on the 2nd time he has run this 5K.   Rounding out the top five in today’s race were Randy Parker 2- 19:42, Dave Parsel 3- 19:58, Tim Hickok 4- 20.16 and Nam Ngo 5- 20.48.

      I apologize for the 5K stripe being paved over causing several runners to turn around at the wrong spot.  A new line will be painted before the next race.  As a result some of the times were not accurate 5K times.

     April marks the 41st anniversary of the lunch hour 5K.  The first race was held April 28, 1981 on a dirt quarter mile track on the Rockwell Seal Beach Facility.  Today was the 320th lunch hour 5K.

     Forty-five runners ran in today’s 5K, the most in the last 20 races dating back to August 2010 when 46 ran.  It is also the most runners in April since 2003.  It is the 27th straight month that at least 30 runners participated and the 39th time in the last 40 months.

     Mark Lowe was the only runner to establish personal best.  Mark lowered his PB by 1:49 marking the 4th straight race that Mark has lowered his time.  He ran his initial race in 56:03 last October and since has run 44:23, 30:24, 28:53 and 27:04.  Congrats Mark!

     Mark and 5 members of his family ran in today’s 5K.  Running were his wife, Annette running her 2nd lunch hour 5K, three children and his nephew, 17 year old Chase, a senior at Marina High School who won the race.  His daughter Lilly at 7 may be the youngest runner to finish the 5K ever!  Serena 9, and Chandler 10 were his two other children running.  This will mark the most members of one family to run in one race and likely the most from one family to appear in all of our 320 races!  Congrats to Mark and family.

     The next 5K is scheduled for 11:50 AM Monday, May 14, 2012 at Gate 510 on the northwest corner of the Boeing Seal Beach Facility.
