Berra vs. Weeks battle resumes at Hartshorne masters mile

Middle-distance stars Scott Weeks and Nick Berra went 1-2 in last year’s Hartshorne Masters Mile men’s 40 elite race, and guess what? Both are back for Saturday’s meet in balmy Ithaca, New York. Thank goodness it’s an indoor meet, since a high of 25 is forecast outdoors. About 70 milers ages 38 to 85 are entered in the 47th annual affair at Cornell University. Besides Scott, the only other 2013 champ defending a title is W50 Lorraine Jasper. (See last year’s results in a meet whose attendance was hit by the flu bug.) The oldest man and woman entered are Edna Hyer, 79, and Richard Sullivan, the M85. Nolan Shaheed will be the oldest entrant in the M50 elite race — at age 64. (So 64 is the new 50 in his case.) Complete 2014 fields are listed here. Here’s the men’s elite 40 mile from a year ago, when Scott won in 4:23.39:
