Charlie Kern Wins World Semi!

Charlie Kern, who has coached many of the great York High School distance runners over the years, is competing this week at the World Masters Athletics Championships in Lahti, Finland. Charlie got off to a great start today, winning the second of two semifinal heats in the Male 40-44 1,500-meter run. Charlie, who also coaches the Elmhurst Running Club's speed workouts (not this week), ran a 4:12:58 for the third-fastest qualifying time overall. Matthias Luck of Germany ran a 4:11:42 and Gianni Bruzzi of Italy clocked a 4:12:09 in the first heat. Sixteen runners qualified for the final. Go, Charlie, go!
