The warm up is over and competitive packs of 4-6 have formed. Others are content to stream along single file. Most find it more comfortable to settle into a pace and hope there are others who share that same pace.
Teenager Anthony Peters (29) is doing the 20K
Melville, Seaman, Burnett and Christie along with Sanchez and Felipe Dos Santos are inbound with a pack of six.
Six pack is now outbound
Talcott continues on the 50K and Elizabeth Flores-Iriarte (105) is half way in 5K

Eight others stream along seconds behind.

Peters, doing 20K, stays in touch with lead 50K pack.
It's three laps into the race and 37 to go. That's a long way.

Returning the favor, loss of contact in two rear athletes, but not visible to the human eye either.
