Two world bests set at the 9th Annual Golden Gate Double 8k today August 6

We had an amazing morning in San Francisco for our 9th annual Golden Gate Double 8k (5k+break+3k) and our Golden Gate 10k/5k. We had 452 registered runners. The weather was perfect. Like in the 50-60’s with hardly any wind. And we could see the GG bridge the whole time.

Congrats to our Double winners: the current king of the Double Anthony Cortes clocked 25:20 (15:52 + 9:28) for the win. 14-year- old Caroline Chang did her first double today and won clocking 32:03.

There were two world bests set today. 71-year-old Suzanne Koonce (second photo) from Menlo Park, California smashed the current 70 plus record set by Sharlet Gilbert of 43:38. Suzanne clocked 41:48 today.

Bobby Hastings of Chico, California set the record for 60-69 a couple of years back of 31:39, a time that was nearly two minutes ahead of everyone else. Today he focused on beating that time and he did clocking 31:29.
