asics Greenville Track Club-ELITE - a post-collegiate, Olympic development program
GTC-ELITE athlete, Adam Freudental, made his first cross country competition since joining the club a good one with a fifth place finish at the Blue Ridge Open 8K. The meet, which was conducted at State Farm Field's 3200' elevation in Boone, NC by Appalachian State University, drew a competitive field of collegiate and post-collegiate runners on a windy autumn afternoon.
Freudental ran with the leaders for much of the race, before taking a slight 10-meter lead with a little more than a kilometer remaining. However, he didn't have a kick in only his second event since turning professional the week before and finished fifth with a fine time of 24:44.
