USA Quigley, Lewy Boulet Win New Haven 20K

Sean Quigley (Philadelphia, Pa.) and Magdalena Lewy Boulet (Oakland, Calif.) took the men's and women's titles Monday at the USA 20K Championships hosted again by the Stratton Faxon New Haven Road Race. Quigley, 25, ran 59 minutes, 21 seconds to win by eight seconds over Mo Trafeh (Duarte, Calif.), while Boulet, 37, cruised home in 1:07:41 for a 45 second win over Stephanie Rothstein (Flagstaff, Ariz.).

At the 33rd race edition, warm, sunny skies met more than 2,300 runners as a pack of 15 men led the field through a relaxed opening mile of 4:52. The lead pack included defending champion Brett Gotcher (Flagstaff, Ariz.), Ben Bruce (Eugene, Ore.), James Carney (Flagstaff, Ariz.), Patrick Smyth (Mammoth Lakes, Calif.), Justin Young (Superior, Colo.) plus Quigley.

As the pace steadily picked up, the main pack remained largely intact with various contenders taking a turn at the lead. By seven miles, Young had taken charge of the lead pack as it was reduced to Carney, Smyth, Quigley and Trafeh.

Young made several surges, gaining as much as five meters on his rivals only to have the gap closed each time. As the pack raced down the final hill on the course past ten miles, Trafeh, the 2010 USA 15K champion, made his bid for another national title. Opening a 15 meter lead, the race looked to be his but Carney and Quigley fought their way back, catching Trafeh.

At 11 miles, the race looked to be Carney's as he opened a five meter lead but a half mile later Quigley made his move and steadily pulled away to take his first USA title. Trafeh held on for second, running 59:29, as Carney took third in 59:33. Young held on for third in 59:45 while Smyth rounded out the top-five in 59:54.

In the women's race, 2008 Olympian Lewy Boulet took charge of the lead pack early with a group of six that included Rothstein, Amy Hastings (Mammoth Lakes, Calif.), Tera Moody (Colorado Springs, Colo.), Clara Grandt (West Union, W.V.) and Nan Kennard (Broomfield, Colo.).

After seven miles, Lewy Boulet steadily pulled away from the field, capturing her first U.S. title of 2010 (and second overall). Rothstein finished 45 seconds later to take the runner-up spot in 1:08:26, while newcomer Kennard took third in 1:08:38. Grandt and Moody took fourth and fifth in 1:09:02 and 1:09:38 respectively.

The USA 20K Championships was the eighth stop for men and the sixth for women on the 2010 USA Running Circuit (USARC) and paid $40,000 in U.S. prize money with Quigley and Lewy Boulet each taking home $8000 each as national champions.

The USARC, a USA Track & Field road series, features USA Championships from one mile to the marathon and attracts the best U.S. distance runners. The circuit features ten events each for men and women. Antonio Vega (Minneapolis, Minn.) leads the men's standings with 44 points, while Lewy Boulet's win gives her the women's lead with 31 points.

Highlights of the USA 20K Championships are available in cooperation with RunnerSpace.com at: www.USARunningCircuit.com
