The breezy made for a chilly morning, but the runners and the bands
turned out anyway for the third annual Bank of America Raleigh Rocks
Half Marathon http://www.ncraces.com/ on Saturday.
The first runners to complete the scenic-but-challenging 13-mile course
were two frequent entrants in area races, Marc Jeuland and Kristy
Friel, who added more top finishes to their lists by winning the men's
and women's overall championships. (Top men's and women's overall and
masters finishers are listed below.)
Jeuland, 31, of Carrboro finished the scenic-but-challenging 13-mile
course in 1 hour, 8 minutes, 58 seconds, just off the race record of
1:08.37 by 2009 winner John Crews.
