FLRC’s July track meet is now in the books, and it was a wonderful way to spend a summer evening, with perfect weather and lots of friendly runners. Thanks to the Auburn Pulsars, Ithaca Youth Bureau, Lansing Lightning, and SOAR clubs, we had tons of young kids—and not much is cuter than one 4-year-old handing off to another in a relay race. But there were some stellar performances from older athletes as well, culminating with the fast heat of the mile, where the top 8 runners all broke 5:00.
With our kid-focused event lineup this summer, we started with the 100m, won by 35-year-old Chris Rogers in 12.65 seconds, just ahead of 14-year-old Gyasi Ruffin (12.69). 12-year-old Mackenna Keough of SOAR was the first female finisher in 14.53, well ahead of her teammate Alexis Collins in 16.12.
In the 800m race, last month’s 800m/400m double-winner Samual Voak defended his title with a 2;20 to place ahead of Lansing Lightning’s John Saunders in 2:21 and Aaron King in 2:24. Again like last month, 11-year-old Maggie Houp of SOAR ran a 2:42 to outpace 37-year-old Liz Hartman, whose 2:45 was a 6-second improvement.
To get a relay in before bedtime for our younger runners, we next ran the 4 by 200m relay, won handily by a team of Ithaca Youth Bureau coaches in 2:03. Seventeen other teams competed as well, with times from 2:14 all the way to 4:15.
Samuel Voak matched last month’s performance with his second win for the night in the 400m, running 56.66, well ahead of Tristan Lambert’s 1:00.35. Elsa Wood of SOAR took the women’s crown with a 1:20.63, outlasting sprinter teammate Mackenna Keough, who crossed in 1:24.36 and Abby Ringwood of the Auburn Pulsars in 1:25.59.
Our most exciting race came last, with the 1-mile race that’s part of FLRC’s ongoing MITHACAL MILE SERIES. In a stacked fast heat, Sean Dunn took the race out hard, but Adam Pacheck soon took over, hoping to defang the kick of Sam Lagasse, last month’s winner. Pacheck’s valiant effort was in vain, though, as Lagasse took the lead in the final lap and kicked hard to win in 4:25, ahead of Pacheck’s 4:27 (4 and 7 seconds faster than last month, respectively). In third again was Rich Heffron in 4:40, followed by Dunn in 4:43, Mik Kern in 4:44, 15-year-old Jared Smith in 4:47, Mohamad Alsabbagh in 4:52, and newcomer Adam Berkowitz in 4:53. On the women’s side, 13-year-old Elizabeth Baroody of the Auburn Pulsars won in 5:57, with SOAR’s Maggie Houp second in 6:05.
Although there are no official results from the long jump, shot put, and kid javelin practice hosted by Brett Shelton and Steve Wagner of SOAR during the meet, lots of kids participated and had a great time.
Thanks to Lansing High School and Coach Becca Lovenheim for hosting once again, and to the many volunteers who made the meet possible. Bob Talda took on the head timer duties, with past FLRC president Tom Rishel once again serving as starter. Jullien Flynn managed seeding with aplomb and published results within minutes after each event ended. Bill Watson and Dave Kania worked wonders in lining up all the heats. Adam Pacheck and his girlfriend Christine recorded bibs of finishers in the longer races. Tonya Engst ran registration with help from Lorrie Tily, and both helped with sprint timing, Truck Rossiter was backup timer and lap caller, Steve Folsom and Jim Derick helped wrangle the relay runners, and previous FLRC track director Tim Ingall stepped in once again to help with timing as well.
Don’t miss our final summer meet of 2019 on August 20th!

Looking for a family-friendly event for a warm summer evening? Come run FLRC’s summer track meets at Lansing High School, where you can test your fitness on the 400-meter track as the heat of the day subsides. All ages (seriously!) and abilities (really!) are welcome in these low-key meets, and when you’re not running, you can enjoy watching some of the area’s best runners compete against one another. Join the fun!
July’s events will be run in this order:
- 4x200m Relay (sign up on a relay card at the meet)
- 1 Mile
Make sure to register for the 1 Mile if you want to participate in our MITHACAL MILE SERIES. To compete, runners must complete at least four mile races in FLRC’s track meets for 2019. At a special award ceremony at the end of the summer, we’ll give prizes to the male and female runners who have the fastest average times across four races in each of the following age groups: 1–10, 11–15, 16–19, 20–29, 30–39, 40–49, 50-59, and 60+.
This meet will once again have some unofficial field events, the shot put and the long jump. Thanks to SOAR for hosting and managing these events! (FLRC cannot host field events due to our insurance.) Note that we also cannot publish results because this will be a practice, not a USATF-sanctioned event. The field events will take place simultaneously with the running events, so it will be up to runners and coaches to navigate scheduling conflicts. No pre-registration for field events is necessary.
The meet takes place at the Lansing High School track, 76 Brickyard Road, Lansing, NY, 14882. Note that Brickyard Road is a right turn (when driving from Ithaca on 34B/Ridge Road) before you get to Lansing High School. There is ample free parking.
- Bib pickup and day-of-race registration from 5:00–5:45 PM.
- No registration or bib pickup after 5:45 PM!
- First event starts at 6:00 PM and meets generally go until 8:00 PM.
- The field events will take place simultaneously with the running events, so it will be up to runners and coaches to navigate scheduling conflicts.
Online pre-registration strongly encouraged and is open until 12:00 PM the day of the meet.
If you have trouble pre-registering online contact meet director Adam Engst via email with your name, age, and event seed times.
Day-of-race registration is available for those who cannot pre-register online.
DirectAthletics Registration Notes:
- You need to a DirectAthletics account to register, so if you created one for a previous meet, you can log into that and register. Be sure to log in to your existing account rather than creating a new account.
- If you’ve never run an FLRC meet before, you’ll have to make a DirectAthletics account; be sure to record your username and password for the future. You’ll use this account to pre-register for other indoor and outdoor track meets as well.
- For families, each person will need an account, regardless of age. If your kids are running, you must create separate DirectAthletics accounts for them and register them for events separately. Fussy, we know, but it’s just like filling out separate registration and entry cards for them in the past. Be careful to log out and log back in with the children’s accounts when registering them.
Pre-registration Fees: FLRC members: Free; Students: $3; Adults: $5
Day-of-meet Fee for Everyone: $10
Teams: Up to 12 runners: $20; 13–50 runners: $35; over 50 runners: $50
Fees are payable at bib pickup and cover the meet as a whole regardless of the number of events run.
- Registration for relays is available only at the meet; fill out and submit a relay registration card at the desk.
- Please predict realistic finish times when registering so we can seed you in an appropriate heat.
- Events run in the order listed, with seeded heats run slow to fast. The number of heats and times will be announced.
- Timing is done by hand, with a Time Machine, not a camera-based fully automatic timing (FAT) system.
- Spikes are fine, and if you choose to wear spikes, pyramid spikes are recommended.
- There are no field events due to restrictions in our Road Runners Club of America insurance coverage.
- The meets are not USATF-sanctioned, so performances cannot be used as World Championship or Olympic qualifiers.
- For remaining questions, or to pre-register manually if you can’t use DirectAthletics for some reason, contact meet director Adam Engst and provide name, sex, age, events, and seed times.
