YWCA Race Against Racism 5K, Lancaster, PA, April 30, 2022—It’s been almost three full years since a big race took place in Downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania. The YWCA Race Against Racism 5K returned to the city streets in a big way with over 2700 registrants. A very cool band, food trucks on Lime Street, vendors in Musser Park, and great running weather made the RAR return a joyful event.
Christopher Myers of Lancaster, who ran the Boston Marathon twelve days ago, won in 15:22. Myers said on his Strava account: “Legs felt surprisingly smooth. Lungs were burning. Definitely not an easy course. Happy with this!”
Josh Sadlock of Harrisburg was second in 15:28. Omari Daughtridge of Fort Washington, MD was third in 15:43, after leading for nearly two miles. Ty Stump of Camp Hill was fourth in 15:52. Alex Pearson of Hummelstown was fifth in 15:52. Evan Sandt of Conestoga, 52, led the masters in 18:45.
Zoe Matherne of Wilmington, Delaware won with a final surge to the finish line, in 17:38. Katie O’Regan of Lititz, the 2017 Race Against Racism champ, battled the entire way and finished second in 17:43. Rachel Rowe of Hummelstown was third in 18:38. Julie Halteman of Elizabethtown was fourth in 19:06. Leah Maher of New Providence was fifth in 19:10. Holly Nash of Elizabethtown was top master in 22:22.
