Kevin Castille crushes M40 American record in 10K at Stanford
Here’s what I found about Kevin at Carlsbad 5000:
In the menвЂ™s Masters race, youth was served by recently turned 40-year-old Kevin Castille of Nicholasville, Kentucky. Leading from gun to tape, Castille crossed the finish line in 14:57 to win by 33 seconds over defending Masters champion Christian Cushing Murray of Santa Ana, Calif. Tim Gore of Oceanside, Calif., was third in 15:31.
Hitting the mile unchallenged in 4:38, Castille continued to stretch out his legs, along with the lead, over the final two miles to make his first Carlsbad 5000 a memorable one.
вЂњI just turned 40 on March 17 and wanted to start the Masters off right,вЂќ said Castille, who hopes to qualify for this summerвЂ™s Olympic Trials in the 10,000 meters. вЂњI know sometimes races are tactical so I wanted to go out in 4:45 no matter what and see what happens.вЂќ
My thanks to David Monti’s Twitter feed, which informed me of Kevin’s amazing mark.
