Tallahassee's top 10K road times in 2018 (through April 7)

Zack Scharlepp and Rachel Scharlepp directed Gulf Winds Track Club's 43rd annual Springtime Road Race on Saturday morning, 7 April 2018. That event included a 10K on a USATF-certified course, and now that the race has been scored, I can add the performances to the list of Tallahassee's top 10K road times for the year.

If the rankings required drama, they got it in the men's competition. Justin Garrard was on the starting line, and so was Chris Haynes. Garrard had run Tallahassee's fastest road 10K of the year for each of the past two years, running 32:01 in 2016 and 32:42 in 2017. Haynes was number two on the list both years, with a 33:29 in 2016 and a 32:51 in 2017. That 32:51, however, had won the 2017 Springtime 10K, making Haynes the defending champion in the 2018 race. Defend he did, winning the Springtime 10K in 32:31. Garrard was second in 33:23. Tallahassee's top two road 10K performers for the past two years were still the top two in 2018, but in a different order.

Katie Sherron leads the women's list after winning the Springtime 10K in 38:57, just a few steps ahead of Ann Centner's 38:59. Sherron finished third in the women's rankings in 2017 and 2015; Centner was ninth in 2017. Sheryl Rosen is third on the current list with her Springtime mark of 39:20. Rosen had the top women's road 10K time in Tallahassee for 2015, a winning 37:30 at the Springtime 10K that year.


Mickey Moore leads the master runners at 38:41, the eleventh-fastest time on the men's list. Kristen Palmer is the top woman master at 45:25, good for tenth in the women's top 25.

Meanwhile, the list of Tallahassee's 10K races on certified courses is shrinking. The Thomasville Road Baptist Church 10K closed up shop after the 2016 race, reducing the 2017 schedule of certified 10K races to four. The Run 2-1-1 10K is back in 2018, but the race has moved from a certified course in Southwood to a new course in the Railroad Square area, which means that there are only three certified 10K events in town during 2018--the Springtime 10K, already run on 7 April 2018, the second annual Saint Peter's Anglican Church 10K on 16 June 2018, and Gulf Winds Track Club's 43rd annual Tallahassee Turkey Trot 10K on 22 November 2018. There is always the possibility that a new 10K will pop up, though. I'll include it in the rankings as long as it meets these criteria:
  • The race has to be in Tallahassee (anywhere in Leon County is fine)
  • The race has to be run on a USATF certified course
  • The race has to have published results
  • I have to see the results
Here are the current rankings, the top 25 men and the top 25 women:
