    This is Winter’s first trip to nationals as he will race in the 3k. Winter’s personal record (7:51.85) ranks 13th heading into nationals. Benner and Clark are also running at their first indoor nationals and both will do so in the 3k. Clark has the ninth (9:08.29) fastest time in the field, while Benner is 12th (9:09.75).

    The men’s 5k is scheduled for Friday, March 11, at 8:05 p.m. Both the men’s and women’s 3k races will take place on Saturday, March 12. The men run first at 6:10 p.m. and the women will follow at 6:25 p.m. All times listed are central.
