Last Friday (23-Aug) the USATF Masters 1 Mile Road Championships were held in Flint, MI. A total of 123 athletes from 23 states competed on the record eligible 1 mile course.
 
Representing USATF Adirondack at the championships was Bob Giambalvo, 70, of Delhi, N.Y. 
 
Giambalvo ran to the national title as he won the men's 70-74 division in a time of 6:01.  Terry McCluskey finished second in 6:15.

Giambalvo's time broke the existing U.S. record of 6:03 (Lloyd Hanson, 2018) in the 70-74 division.  For record purposes it is expected that his time will be submitted for ratification as 6:00.
