Edinger Attempts a World Record

 

New York City – Wolf Creek Track Club member, Nick Edinger, of Mars, PA is competing in the Armory NYC Indoor Marathon World Record Challenge hosted by New York Road Runners tomorrow (March 17, 2018) at 12:00 PM Eastern Time at the Armory Track in Manhattan. The race will consist of 211 laps around the banked 200-meter track. Five men will attempt to set a new world record at this event for the 3rd year in a row. The current indoor marathon world record of 2:21:48 belongs to Chris Zablocki of Essex, CT.  Zablocki is one of the five runners competing tomorrow. Nick has run 2:20:32 outdoors so he should certainly be in contention with a good race.  New York Road Runners is offering prize money for tomorrow’s top finishers. The winner will receive a check for $3,000 and an additional $4,000 if he breaks the world record. The second place finisher will receive $2,000 and another $1,000 if he also breaks the previous world record.  The third place runner will receive $1,000. Good Luck Nick!

The race will be Live Streamed.
