2019 Lynn Woods Relay…ya, we got that!

Congratulations to the WCRC’s Men’s Open Team of Jacob Johns (13:34), Pat Fullerton (15:24), Kevin St. Laurent (14:15) and Chris Kealey (15:20) on their impressive overall win at the 2019 10 mile (4 x 2.5) Lynn Wood’s Relay!

The WCRC Men’s Open Team bested 86 other teams (across all divisions) and handily won last night’s race in 58:33. 2nd place went to the Wicked Running Club’s Men’s Open Team (Wicked Alphas) at 59:46. The only two teams that ran sub-1 hour in last night’s race.

For the second year in a row, Jacob kicked off the race by running the fastest leg of any runner in the race (2018 13:54, 2019 13:34). Pat and Kevin ran the 2nd and 3rd legs maintaining Jacob’s early lead. Ageless wonder (and former WCRC President) Chris Kealey anchored the Open team and breezed through the finish line far ahead of the rest of the field.

In the closest finish in the race’s history, Brian (#2) edged out Jacob (#258) by hundredths of a second. In the books at 4:07:3 and 4:07:4 Net (chip) time, it was actually closer than that. Winners are determined based on Gun Time (first to cross the finish line) and on-site, at the finish line, USATF official Dave Johns gave Brian the win!
