Chris Theodore ran the 13th fastest time at Liberty Bell last year.
It will take a 15:38 to make it inside the top 50 times run at Liberty Bell over the past 10 years. Let that sink in. It's been nine years since Joseph Manilafasha blasted a 14:56 - one of two sub 15s run since 2008, the other being Zachary Alhamra's 14:58.
That's what it'll take to make the top-10.
Last year we saw six boys make it into the top 50. Of those six, five were within nine seconds of that time. And of those five, two return...
Cole Sprout leads the list of returners. And hot on his heels is Easton Allred. Now, the unique situation here is that a time run is a time, it doesn't matter what race it was run it, it's a time run.
Sprout undeniably leads to charge of those who will likely dip into the top 10 Saturday - and beyond. But Allred, running not-in-a-Sweepstakes-Race, could likely do the same.
And of course there's a few names not on this list that we'll see run themselves onto it Saturday, but that's for the Liberty Bell Preview, which I'll publish later.
