|Andrew Benford set a course record |
in the 4th Annual McLean 5K.
On Wednesday of this week Benford will travel with the USA Team to Izumo, Japan for the Izumo Ekiden relay race. Today's event served as a final tune-up for the Izumo Ekiden to be held October 10th.
"I put in a good effort on that first uphill mile and came through around 4:50", said Benford. "The course was not as fast I thought it would be, but I felt it was a good effort. I got in some work for the race in Japan next week which was what I wanted."
Proceeds from the event benefit the Children’s National Medical Center, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Wounded Warrior Project, and Habitat for Humanity.
