Congrats to Bailey Drewes, Ellie Pell, and Chelsea Benson for their races in Atlanta at the Olympic Trials Marathon! As timed by our friends at Leone Timing, their results were:
- Bailey Drewes: 2:42:11, 66th place
- Ellie Pell: 2:44:59, 121st place
- Chelsea Benson: 2:47:05, 163rd place
Another runner with a local connection was Keira D’Amato (Casey Carlstrom’s niece), who ran 2:34.24 for 15th place. Elmira native Molly Huddle dropped out at 21 miles, and Allie Kieffer, who ran the Pete Glavin Cross Countries Series races with us a few years ago, dropped out at 7 miles. Sadly, Jullianne Quinn was unable to run due to injury.
Other PGXC friends in the race included Tim Chichester of the Genesee Valley Harriers, who ran 2:23 for 85th place, and Sam Morse of the Syracuse Track Club, who came in at 2:40:26.
Hopefully, @colleen.hoya can share some pictures from the race, since she was watching in person and got at least one of Bailey.
