John Doub of Waynesboro, Pa., won his second consecutive Lombardi 10-K foot race yesterday when he completed the hilly Georgetown course in 30:22.7.
Stephen Pinard of Hartwood, Va., finished second in 30:31.8 and David McCormack of Falls Church, who ran stride for stride with Doub over the first half of the race, took third in 30:52.5.
Julie Bowers of Carlisle, Pa., a recent graduate of West Chester State, finished first among the women in 35:08.0. Cindy Dalrymple of Arlington was second in 38:30.4 and Jacqueline Mount of Washington finished third in 38:52.9.
The run was part of the 15th annual Vince Lombardi weekend held to raise money for the Lombardi Cancer Research Center at Georgetown University Hospital. Former Green Bay Packers Jimmy Taylor, Bart Starr, Willie Wood and Jerry Kramer are expected to participate today in celebrity golf and tennis matches at Indian Spring Country Club in Silver Spring.
Doub, 38, whose winning time last year was just under 31 minutes, ran the first half of the course yesterday in 15 minutes while McCormack stayed with him.
"He and I were running very hard," said Doub, a computer draftsman. "I was able to pick up the pace at the halfway point. I surged and put a move on him and I still had enough for the hills. I think I won by about 110 meters.
"For that course, I was pleased," he said. "Georgetown isn't the flattest place to run. The first two miles are pretty hilly and it's out and back, so the last two miles are pretty hilly."
Pinard, 24, passed McCormack with a little less than a kilometer remaining. "I tried to catch up (with Doub)," Pinard said, "but he turned and saw me and picked it up a little."
