Age group world record

Falls Church’s Reinhardt Harrison broke an age group record for 10-year-olds at the Alexandria Running Festival Half Marathon May 25, running 1:35:02 to eclipse Noah Bliss’ 1:37:15, set three weeks earlier. U.S. athletes hold 17 of 85 single-age records for the half marathon, which are kept by the Association of Road Racing Statisticians. Harrison set a world record for 10-year-olds at 10 miles at the Cherry Blossom Ten Mile in April, running 1:11:24.

In memorium

James Vollmer, co-head cross country coach at Poolesville High School and assistant track and field coach at Watkins Mill High School, died at age 60 May 26 of an apparent heart attack, according to Watkins Mill. He also served as a security guard for Montgomery County Public Schools for 25 years. Kevin Milstead remembers him on MoCo Running.
