Boston meet produces indoor WRs in M35 and M40 4×800 relays
Masters relay records outside worlds and Penn are rare. But two WRs at one meet? That’s the case at the Boston University Last Chance Meet on Sunday. An M40 team of Ed Winslow, Chris Blondin, Mark Williams and Nicholas Berra clocked 7:49.90 to crush the listed indoor world 4Ч8 record of 7:58.12 set a year ago in New York. Mark shared these amazing splits: Ed (1:59.91), Chris (1:59.69), Mark (1:55.75) and Nick (1:54.93). An M35 team also claimed a WR, but the listed best of 8:11.58 from 2004 seems way slow. Mark says splits on Central Park Track Club’s 7:55.13 were Andrew Hogue (2:02.49), Rob Gill (1:58.09), Peter Brady (1:58.49) and Jonevan Hornsby (1:54.06). So the M35 record is behind the M40. Talk about rarities.
