Luke Belford and Courtney Waldhauser led the way as the Renaissance Allsports Athletic Club finished third among 10 teams in the Maryland-D.C. 10-Mile Team Championship Race Sunday in Columbia.

Belford finished 10th in the field of 560, and Waldhauser placed 12th among the women in leading RASAC to its best finish of the last 12 years in the annual race.

Waldhauser marked her return to racing after an eight-month hiatus due to a stress fracture. The 19-year-old Fallston High grad ran 68:57, behind winner Susie Emond, 59:27. Eileen Giovanazi finished 2:48 behind Waldhauser in 1:11:45. Megan McNew ran 1:12:23, and Veronique Hauschild, 1:16:01, to complete the RASAC scoring.

With a team of 46 runners, RASAC placed fourth in the women’s scoring, third in the men’s, and third in the combined. The Falls Road Running Store won all three, and Howard County Striders, with 97 entrants, was second in men’s and combined. The women’s scoring was based on a team of four, and the men’s, a team of 10.

For Belford, it was the first long race since his 2:39:08, sixth-place finish in the Hartford, Conn., Marathon in October. He clocked 55:28 Sunday behind winner Dave Berdan, of the Falls Road Running Center (51:43).

Billy Steele, 18, of Rising Sun, gave the RASAC team a boost with his 13th place finish in 55:59. Matt Klaschus, of Street, was the third finisher for the team at 25th in 58:37, and Elkton High School standout Luke Arbuckle was 26th in 58:43.

Two other RASAC members bettered the 1-hour mark. Alex Loper was 27th in 58:55, and Shawn Loper, 32nd in 59:34. Other scorers for the team were Jerry Henderson, 1:01:35; Jeff Damiano, 1:02:16; Kevin Hewitt, 1:03:43; Charles Powell, 1:03:55; and Gary Grant, 1:04:59.

North Harford coach Eric Benjamin ran 1:01:50 in 53rd place, and Dulaney High School coach Chad Boyle, 1:01:09 in 49th. Both competed for Falls Road Running Club.

Ten Harford County runners raced in the Rock N Roll Mardi Gras Marathon in New Orleans Sunday. Lisa Gesualdo, of Bel Air, registered the top finish, placing 38th in her age group in the half marathon in 1:48:52.
