ASICS GTC-ELITE athlete Kimberly Ruck returned to her alma mater and ran away from all competition on Clemson Univeristy's Indoor track. The former Tiger All American took the early lead and easily won the 5,000 meter event with a time of 16:42. She lapped everyone in the field and many twice as she won by 71 seconds on the 200-meter oval. Ruck's time converts to a 16:33 using the conversion adjustment for the 200 meter unbanked track.
Her teammate, Chris Caldwell, placed 2nd in the men's 5,000 with a time of 15:01 (converted to 14:52) as the GTC-ELITE made their first indoor appearances in the group's brief history.
Next on the GTC-ELITE schedule is the 37th annual Reedy River Run 10K in Greenville, SC.
The GTC-ELITE is a post-collegiate Olympic Development group sponsored by ASICS America, the 42-year-old Greenville Track Club, Performance Therapy, ScanSource, Greenville Health System, Soleus watches, Boston Bill Sunglasses, ElliptiGO, Roll Recovery, the Bare Minimum Track Club and generous individual contributors.
