The first NYRR Dash to the Finish Line, a 5k race that ends at the finish of Sunday’s ING New York City Marathon, had an Ivy flavor as four Leaguers finished among the top 20.
Dartmouth graduate Ben True finished less than 10 seconds behind winner Chris Thompson, in 14:02. True finished sixth overall, just ahead of Matt Tegenkamp and Lopez Lamong. Columbia graduate Bobby Hartnett was 18th overall.
On the women’s side, Sara Hall was the winner while former Princeton All-American Ashley Higginson was 14th (three seconds behind Deena Kastor) and former Columbia standout Caroline Lefrak (nee Bierbaum) was 17th.
If you know some Hepsters who are running tomorrow, that is the kind of information that ‘comments’ are made for!
