The Wild Rovers opened the 2020 racing season with a dominating win in the Irish Shamrock Sweat-er 5K and 10K. Donning singlets with the appropriately festive Wild Rover shamrock, our runners took first place in the team competition for both races. Chris McCloskey won the 5K race with a time of 18:11. while Greg Potestio and Peter Koch followed in 3rd and 4th. In the 10K, Mike Cooley and Alejandro Guana finished close together for 2nd and 3rd in 35:43 and 35:50, with John Deer coming closely behind to finish 4th and round out the team scoring. This race marks the third straight win for the team in the Irish Sweat-er 5K, as well as a win in the event’s inaugural 10K.
