NYRR Dash to the Finish Line 5K

Race Recap

Another Historic Finish

Today’s NYRR Dash to the Finish Line 5K was over quickly—especially for those runners preparing for tomorrow’s marathon—but finishers took their time congratulating one another and catching up in Central Park afterward.

Race Stories

For Willis, Another Win in NYC

As he eyed the sizeable gap between himself and the leaders and realized that he was running out of time and real estate to do anything about it, New Zealand Nick Willis’ competitive side kicked into gear.

“With 1:30 to go, I thought, ‘I couldn’t just race David [Torrence] anymore,” Willis said of the American he was running next to. ‘I have to go after these guys because he’s not covering the gap.’ That’s when my momentum started building.”


A Kick Does the Trick for Huddle

It didn’t take long for the top three female contenders in the NYRR Dash to the Finish Line 5K to make themselves known.

Shalane Flanagan and Molly Huddle took off from the gun, setting an early pace—4:55 for the first mile—that only Emily Infeld could match. There were no secrets in this group: Huddle and Infeld knew that they would be able to outkick Flanagan if the race came down to the final meters. And Flanagan knew that they knew it.
