Eight members of the Michigan Running Club traveled to East Lansing for the Spartan Invite, resuming racing after a few weeks of training in between indoor and outdoor season. Six runners competed in the 1500, and two ran the 5000.
In the 1500, Ben Treweek (4:05) and Matt Shaheen (4:22) both won their respective heats in convincing fashion, while Will Kane (4:09) and Max Hock (4:12) both ran career-best times. Scott Wagner finished the race in 4:20, and MacLean Drees, in his inaugural MRun race, ran 4:21. Garrett Cullen and Jimmy Adams both competed in the 5000 meters, with Cullen finishing in 15:44 and Adams crossing the line at 16:11.
The track team will take next weekend off as they prepare for the National Collegiate Club Track & Field Championship meet in Bowling Green, Ohio on April 16. The team is hoping for a strong turnout and a high team performance in the first-ever national club track championship meet.
