National 30km Racewalk Championships

Shore AC's three man team came up just short in the battle for the team title at the National 30km Racewalk Championships, held October 28 in windy Hauppauge, NY. Scored on the basis of overall time, Pegasus of Michigan just edged Shore AC, 8:47:26 to 8:48:40. Varsano's Chocolates Racewalking followed closely at 8:53:35 for third. Shore's Rich Leuttchau, in his first race longer than 20km, was among the early leaders, hitting 10km in 48:40 before struggling due to a foot injury. Rich hung in there to finish in 2:48:02 for 8th place, 5th US. John Soucheck slowed over the last 10km feeling the effects of his recent 50km Olympic Trials qualifying effort for a 2:43:17, 7th place, 4th US, 1stM40 finish. Rounding out the team was Tom Quattrochi , whose 3:17:21 garnered him 2nd in M55.
