Cal Coast at 2019 Carlsbad 5K

By Jeff Salzman, 04/09/19, 6:30PM PDT


In a race where Edward Cheserek tied the world 5K road mark of 13:29 his performance was almost overshadowed (but not quite, congratulations Edward!) by the Cal Coast showing at Carlsbad.  Running against some of the best in the country our Masters team was led by Jacques Sallberg (fresh off his USATF National XC victory in Tallahassee) with a 3rd place finish followed closely by John Gardiner and Christian Cushing-murray.

A special shoutout goes Roosevelt Cook who today completed his 9th Carlsbad5000.  After 8 victories of crossing the finish line first in the 30 - 39 age group race this years race was changed to a 39 & under race where he was edged out by a 27 year old in the overall race but still winning the 30-39 group.  Roosevelt has had the most wins of any athlete in the history of the event, and we at Cal Coast are looking forward to him joining our Masters runners to extend those victories.
