Recap of 2013 Army Ten-Miler (Photos)

DC resident Kerri Gallagher takes gold and sets a new course record.

Despite weeks of concern that the government shutdown would derail the Army Ten-Miler, the race went off as planned Sunday morning and ended with a new course record set by a local DC runner. 

Kerri Gallagher, 24, won the women’s race with a time of 54:56, running a little less than 5:30 minutes per mile. She broke the previous course record of 55:25, which was held by Northern Virginia runner Samia Akbar. It was the second Army Ten-Miler win in a row for Gallagher, who is coached by Matt Centrowitz, the head coach of American University’s cross-country and track programs and a top Washingtonian running coach

Gallagher was joined on the podium by two fellow Washington residents, Elizabeth Maloy and Olympian Julie Culley, respectively.

Three Brazilian army teammates took gold, silver, and bronze on the men’s side, with DC resident Chris Kwiatkowski placing fourth with a time of 48:17.
