Week in Review: Oskar Blues and More

Another great weekend of racing is in the books. The Asheville Running Collective competed in a several events throughout the region. Ryan Woods, Javan Lapp, Frankie Adkins, Stu Moran, and Phil Latter raced a stacked field at the Oskar Blues 4 Miler.  A strong pack from ZAP Fitness made this a race for 6th place as they packed up at the front and swept the top 5 in a controlled effort. Brevard native Jesse McEntire represented the Charlotte Running Club well with a solid 20:01 6th place finish.  The ARC pack streamed in over the next 5 places. The highlight came from Javan, who snagged the $100 bonus for leading at the mile mark then held on strong to finish 8th. Definitely put this race on your 2018 race calendar - it has become an ARC favorite.

Caleb Masland had a busy day at the office on Saturday in Mocksville, NC.  He is racing is way back to PR fitness, so he took on both the 5k and the 10k at the Shamrock Run.  He was able to get the win at both distances with only about 30 minutes rest.  Not bad!

Finally, Peyton Hoyal turned in the fastest result of the week at the Chattahoochee 10k down in Georgia.  He clocked 32:05 on his way to the victory.  This is a strong follow-up to January’s Winter Classic 8k.  Look for more quick results from Peyton this spring.
