SPS Women Place 3rd at Mayor’s Cup


This past Saturday, South Philly Striders competed in the 3rd annual Mayor’s Cup.  It was a particularly good day for the SPS women, who placed 3rd in the women’s competition.  The squad was paced by Emma Rakestraw’s 5th place finish in the 10K and Karen Lancaster’s 7th place finish in the half marathon.  Overall, SPS finished 8th out of 35 teams, despite not starting a male in the 5K.  SPS remains the only neighborhood or free/open to all running club to place in the top three in the history of the Mayor’s Cup overall competition.
