OAC 5000m May 6/7

Anyone paying attention to the 5k coming up may 6?

Is anyone going to challenge Jakob for the win?

King Ches’s return to high profile track races in what seems like forever.

Brooks Beast lads versus the Tinman Elite boys cumulative time wager? funds are supposed to go to 2 scholarships.

NAU boys challenge the top 5 potentially?

anyone got some hot takes for upsets?
Personally I’m going with ches… 3:49 indoor mile speed in the past and a 13:40 5k and 60 min half this year?

Some more info on this for others tuning in to the thread: Track Meet — Sound Running

Can you elaborate more on how this time wager works? Did not realize Cheserek has put up some nasty results this year. Dabbled in some XC too it looks like!

to be fair the 3:49 was from a couple years ago but he’s definitely got the potential for a fast one.
Basically between the duos of Josh Kerr/ David Ribich and Drew Hunter/ Sam Parsons whoever combines for the fastest time wins. The scholarships appear to be mainly crowd sourced so the idea is that people donate in support of whichever duo they choose to support and then 100% of proceeds go back to the community!

Bannon Fafard and CPT all running as well…CPT already with 1500 standard but maybe he gets close to the 5000 standard too. Ingebritsen ftw, hopefully Klecker runs fast #goodforthesport
