asics Greenville Track Club-ELITE - a post-collegiate, Olympic development program
ASICS Greenville Track Club-ELITE's Austin Steagall returned to his hometown of Gaffney, SC and won the SC Peach Festival 5K for the sixth consecutive year. His time of 14:37 was only one second shy of his 2014 course record of 14:36 and was quite a bit faster than his wining time of 15:00 in 2017. He earned $100 for his victory.
