For the second year in a row Reston’s Potomac River Running Store has conquered the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) Team Running Store Competition.  A total of 15 stores from Virginia, Maryland, and Washington, D.C. participated in the competition.  With a winning time of 8:46:30, PRR Reston clinched the win by 14 minutes.

PRR team members consisted of Adam Condit, Christ Sloane, and Mary Klaff.  Condit finished fifth overall in the competition – among 21,023 MCM finishers – with an individual time of 2:29:28 (beating his 2010 time of 2:31:00), pushing the PRR team into first.  Team Running Store results are determined by combining the finishing times of each store’s fastest three runners, including at least one runner of both genders.

The MCM Running Store Award was presented by MCM Director Rick Nealis and mascot Miles the bulldog to PRR store owners Ray and Cathy Pugsley and Margie and Brendan Shapiro on Wednesday, January 4. “We are so proud of our crew for once again hanging tough and finishing strong,” says Ray Pugsley.
