Mish wins his fifth straight Sugar Bowl 5K, Kitchen wins her first

The Jim Kane Sugar Bowl 5K hosted by the L Street Running Club in South Boston held its annual Thursday night summer race with a dozen B.A.A. team members enjoying a break from the heat and humidity with pleasant racing conditions. With decent weather, B.A.A.’s Brad Mish set his mind to take down his own course record of 15:03 from last year. With no one to challenge him in the opening mile, Mish had some work to do out front. At the finish, Mish missed the mark by just two 3 seconds winning his 5th consecutive Sugar Bowl 5K in 15:05. Trailing in 4th was B.A.A.’s Ben Coughlin finishing in 16:33 placing 1st in the 25-29 age group. Matt Herman won the Masters division finishing 11th overall in 17:08 while John Barrett won the 45-49 age group finishing in 19:15. Also placing in the age group awards were Tim McFadden finishing 2nd in the 30-34 age division in 18:35 and Phil Ryan placed 2nd in the 75-79 age group in 37:13.

In the women’s race, B.A.A.’s Sam Kitchen led from the start to win her first race as a new B.A.A. team member keeping the competition at bay winning in 18:20 ahead of runner-up Ashley Jensen of Boston finishing in 18:31. B.A.A.’s Kelley Magill finished 4th overall for the women and 1st in the 20-24 age category while Julia Joy Morgillo placed 2nd in the 30-34 age group in 20:13.

Congrats to all of the B.A.A. runners on their Sugar Bowl races.
