I think you are missing at least 1 or 2 top 10 glen Ellyn runners. Sanya Syrstad ran just over 3 hours, behind Jeff Vilimek. Jim Nagle ran 3:33.

Thank you for pointing that out. Sorting through all of the numbers I did somehow miss those two despite my efforts to make sure all of the numbers were accurate. I will update the numbers and add them in. Thank you.

No problem Mary. Just know how hard those runners work and didn't want to see anyone left off!
