47th Washington's Birthday Marathon

Greenbelt, MD
Conducted by DC Road Runners Club

DCRRC continued an important area running tradition by holding one of the oldest marathons in the country in surprisingly pleasant conditions, with only a few minutes of brief drizzle despite the prediction of rain.

For the first time in years, a master runner, Chris Hamley was the overall winner in 2:42. First woman was Lydia Becker in 3:17.

Other finishers included George Banker, who was Race Director of the marathon relay for 15 years and is now the Technical Director of the Army 10 Miler (4:19:19); Ron Bowman, who directed the Annapolis 10 Miler for many years, (6:06:00); and James Thull, who has directed many races as President of the Fredericksburg Area Running Club (4:14:24).

The youngest finisher was 16-year-old Rebecca Kish, and the oldest was 68-year-old Benito Vazquez.
