GBTC’s Alison McCabe Headed to Nationals

The surprise breakthrough came at the USATF-NE indoor championships at Harvard University’s Gordon track on Sunday, Feb. 21. Much of the info below has been supplied by GBTC coach Tom Derderian.

A group of female runners from the Central Park TC wanted to take a shot at the USATF 1500m qualifying time of 4:30 and persuaded meet management to include the 1500 as the “fast” section of the mile.

McCabe
didn’t think she had a chance at a qualifying time and really wanted to race a
mile to see if she could run a season best, but she went along with the 1500
idea to help the other runners. 

At
the gun, McCabe shot out to fourth place and proceeded to chase down the early
leaders from CPTC. When she caught them in the last lap she charged right by to win by 5-seconds in 4:29.44,  the only qualifier for the national
championship to be held Sat. Feb 27th in Albuquerque, NM. A full list of all indoor qualifiers in various events can be found at:

The GBTC will be paying the way for McCabe to represent the club at the US Championship.
