Brad Barton falls short in WR mile bid at Boise State indoor mile

Brad in civvies

Running against collegiate kiddies Saturday, Brad Barton fell 1.4 seconds short of the listed M45 indoor world record in the mile, clocking 4:21.58 at the Bronco Invitational at Boise State University, according to these meet results. That race overshadowed the M40 debut of Scott Weeks, who won the M40 elite mile at Saturday’s Hartshorne Memorial Masters Mile race at Cornell University’s Barton Hall in 4:23:39. Scott beat former Hartshorne victor Nick Berra, who finished in 4:29.12, according to results shared by Tom Hartshorne. Scott is a former rabbit in the elite men’s race, so congrats on finally being able to pace the race to the end. Alisa Harvey, 47, took the W40 elite race in 5:17:55, ahead of Jill Vollweiler, 44, who ran 5:36:04. Bill Zink, 52, won a battle with Vince Friel, 4:51:33 to 4:52:04 in the M50 elite race, and Lorraine Jasper, 51, ran away with the W50 elite race in 5:29:54 — more than 20 seconds ahead of Ithaca’s own Gillian Haines-Sharp in 5:51:40. The top age-graded performance (92.4%) was by Nolan Shaheed, who was sixth in the M50 elite race in 5:07:54.

    Just a minor correction, Ken – I had the top AG score at Hartshorne! 92.5% I’m trying not to let Nolan forget it. :)
