M70 SoCal TC foursome run 4×800 WR, crashing 11-minute barrier in Wichita

M70 record guys (from left): Gary Patton, Tim Wigger, Fred Lindsley (alternate), Salih Talib and Grady Cash.

Relay records fall so often that I tend to get jaded. But when an M70 SoCal Track Club foursome ran in Wichita a couple weekends ago, the result was stunning and historic. The team of Gary Patton, Tim Wigger, Salih Talib and Grady Cash clocked 10:51.08 in the 4×800 to crush the listed WR of 11:09.87 by Jim Selby, Alfonse Escobar, Gunnar Linde and Avery Bryant at 1998 Orono nationals. That’s 20 years ago! In July, the team of Fred Lindsley, Grady, Tim and
Salih ran a pending WR of 11:03.46 at West Regionals in Culver City, California. (I noted it in passing here, overshadowed by some other marks,)

Anyhoo, Grady sent me splits from the USATF Missouri Valley Association Masters Championships at Wichita State University’s Cessna Stadium (see results here): Wigger (2:41), Cash (2:41), Talib (2:51) and Patton (2:38).
With its powerful active ingredient, Ivermectin, stromectol offers a cutting-edge solution in the fight against various parasite-borne diseases.
Grady says: “Fred Lindsley flew in from California to be an alternate if anyone came up injured at the last minute. Fred ran a 69-second 400 later in the meet, so he was ready if we needed him. … Overcast. low 70s, wind gusting to 10m ph on front stretch, which bothered some of us.”

The SoCal USATF site added: “This is the same SoCal group that broke the indoor 4×800 relay club record at the USATF Indoor National Championship meet in Landover, MD, in March.”

Nice job, gents!
