It was another fantastic, PR-filled weekend for Rogues both in town and out.

Beginning with the big one…the IBM 10K!

Sunday morning presented as near-perfect race conditions as possible – clear skies, 60 degrees and the lowest humidity we’ve had in weeks. 1800 runners lined up at 8am, ready to capture a slew of PRs! Rogue highlights included:

*Rogue coach Allison Macsas won the women’s race with a PR of 35:39!

Laura Kate Amrhein: 50:01 (8:03 pace) 4th in AG and PR!
