|International Victors! UR Women Snag Top Prize in Corporate Challenge Championship|
|Tuesday, May 21 2013|
Thirty-nine top corporate and organizational running teams from seven countries around the globe gathered in Rochester Tuesday hoping to take home the Championships' top honors—and it turns out the women's division prize won't be traveling too far at all on its trip home.
The University of Rochester women’s team beat out the others, completing the 3.5-mile course in a combined 1 hour, 24 minutes and 41 seconds. UR’s Jessica Snyder (running the course in 20 minutes, 19 seconds) led Sarah Loerch, Kristina Maletz, and Christina deVries across the finish line. (All four are pictured above, just after the race.)
It was the first time Rochester hosted the international championships; 10,921 runners registered for the regular race, which took place at the same time and venue as the championships.
