California International Marathon

Four Kiwis made the trek to Sacramento to compete in the California International Marathon.

 

Mike led the charge with a new personal best of 2:29:42, achieving the coveted Fukuoka Qualifier. He packed up with Butch, who set a 10 minute PB, finishing in 2:30:01 and also making the Fukuoka mark. Chaz went out hard, trying to beat his American Record (T12/B2 visual impairment category), but ultimately fell off pace around mile 20 and finished in 2:38:20. Henry finished out the pack, completing his debut in 2:38:57.

All in all, it was a great day and a great season for The Land! We'll be back soon with early season indoor meets and the Phoenix Marathon!

Mike and Butch kicking it with the ladies. They wouldn't share their "special" water.
