Tallahassee's top 5K road times in 2018 (through April 7)

During April in Tallahassee there is a healthy line-up of 5K road races on USATF-certified courses, with Gulf Winds Track Club's Springtime 5K on 7 April 2018, GWTC's Palace Saloon 5K on 21 April 2018, and the Nene Fest 5K on 28 April 2018. The Palace and Nene Fest are still in the future, but the Springtime 5K is already in the record books, and in that race four athletes earned their way onto the lists of Tallahassee's top 5K road times in 2018--three making the men's top 25 and one the women's top 25.

After winning the Springtime 5K in 18:00, Mark Zamani is eleventh on the men's list. This is Zamani's first appearance in the 2018 rankings; he ended 2017 seventh in the city with a 16:42, his winning time at the 2017 Trent Trot 5K. Hopewell Junction, New York master runner Jeff Conston is in the Tallahassee rankings for the first time after placing second at the Springtime 5K in 18:25. Conston is fifteenth on the men's list. Tallahassee's Thomas Hultgren also made the men's top 25 for the first time; Hultgren placed third at Springtime in 18:29, putting him seventeenth on the men's list.


Lucy Baird cracked the women's top ten, grabbing the fourth spot on the list on the strength of the 19:19 she ran for the women's title at the Springtime 5K. A Florida State University undergrad, Baird is in the women's top 25 for the first time ever.

Up top, Charlie Johnson is still first on the list with a three-month old mark of 16:15 that he ran at the Bowlegs 5K back in January. Adriana Piekarewicz continues to have the top Tallahassee performance by a woman in 2018, the 17:59 she posted at the Run For The Cookies 5K on 10 February 2018. Carter Hay still leads the master runners in 2018, tenth on the men's list with his 18:00 from the Run For The Cookies 5K. And Corinne Porcher still has the leading time by a woman master for the year, the 22:30 she ran at the Shamrock Scurry 5K on 3 March 2018. Porcher is 24th on the women's list.


All that could change, though. All it would take is a fast performance at the Palace Saloon 5K, the Nene Fest 5K, or any other 5K race meeting 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
While we're waiting for that to happen, here are the lists, current through 7 April 2018.
