asics Greenville Track Club-ELITE - a post-collegiate, Olympic development program
ASICS Greenville Track Club-ELITE athlete Trent Binford-Walsh ran to a 44-second margin of victory in the annual James Island Connector 5K in the South Carolina low country. On an unusually cold day for the Charleston area, Binford-Walsh ran 15:55, just nine seconds off the course record for the deceptive course which traverses the bridge connector between Charleston and James Island. Although the conditions were under sunny skies, the runners had to brave strong wind gusts, which resulted in slower times. He received $250 for the victory.
