RR PA Masters runner, Brian Pilcher, sets 7 ARs in one race!

Yesterday, 10/30/2021, Tamalpa Runners’ Brian Pilcher (65) ran the River Oaks Invitational Half Marathon in Houston TX. The event features a certified course consisting of multiple loops of ~1.0 mile with verified splits of:
8K, 10K, 12K, 15K, 10 Mile & 20K.

Here are Brian’s M65-69 AR splits and H Mar finishing time:
8K – 29:12 (old M65 American Record, 29:41)
10K – 36:35 (old M65 American Record, 37:04)
12K – 44:04 (old M65 American Record, 46:58)
15K – 55:15 (old M65 American Record, 55:16)
10 Mile – 59:42 (old M65 American Record, 1:02:07)
20K – 1:14:55 (old M65 American Record, 1:20:55)
H Mar – 1:19:03 (old American Record, 1:23:50)

To set an age group AR in the Half Marathon, a very competitive event, is a very significant accomplishment, but to set 6 ARs in route is one for the ages.
