22nd Annual GSH Summer Sizzler Series - 8K

Springfield, MA, August 22, 2001

Results courtesy of the Greater Springfield Harriers.




          
Abdul-Wadud, Cummings, Roberts and Blanchard take the Final 8K Honors!

  Eighty five degree weather didn't slow the 34 runners that showed up for the final 8K race of this series.  In the early going it seemed like no one wanted to take this one out in the heat.  However after leaving the Park, things started to heat up and fifteen year-old Asif Abdul-Wadud ran away to a men's victory in 30:16 while Colleen Cummings took women's honors.
  The temperature did little to stop Art Roberts, as he set an impressive 31:07 age  record surpassing that 57 age record by some 20 seconds that was set by Roland Cormier.  Equally as impressive was the record set by 75 years young, Doug Blanchard who competed the course in 40:18
   Congratulations to all runners for running a great race!
