Yes/No: Vega in Top Two at the USA 10 Mile?

In 2009, Minnesota running fans were given a treat: The USA 10 Mile Championship was hosted by the Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon/TC 10 Mile. Spectators were able to watch Josh Moen give Abdi Abdirahman everything he could handle down Summit Avenue while eventually finishing second in 46:38.


A strong field has assembled for the 2010 USA 10 Mile Championship, but unfortunately we will have to travel to Flint, Michigan to watch this version. The race is hosted by the Crim Festival of Races on Saturday.

Moen won't be racing, but his teammate Antonio Vega will be on hand to try to extend his lead in the 2010 USARC Standings. Let us know how he will fare by answering this question...

Y/N: Will Antonio Vega finish in the top two at the USA Men's 10 Mile Championship on Saturday?

Antonio Vega has been on a roll in 2010. To this point, he has been the best American male road racer, at least as defined by the USA Running Circuit Standings. Vega is the 2010 USA Half Marathon Champ. He also finished third at the USA 15 Championships and fourth at the USA 7 mile Championships. Vega ran 2:13:47 at the Boston Marathon in 2010 as well.

You can find the entry list for the USA 10 Mile HERE. Favorites include 2008 Medtronic Twin Cities Marathon champ Fernando Cabada, Scott Bauhs, Fasil Bizuneh, and Ryan Sheehan.

To play our game, simply type "yes" or "no" into the subject line of an e-mail and send it to us at DtBFantasy [AT] gmail [DOT] com before 7:00 A.M. CST, Saturday, August 28th. Please put your answer in the subject line of the e-mail and make sure your full name appears somewhere in the e-mail. We will continue to offer a bonus for participants making their debut in Yes/No - a correct answer will be worth two points for any first-time players.

My answer: Yes

The fantasy contest question from last week was: Will five or more runners break 20:00 in the Buttered Corn Day 5K?
The answer was yes. Six runners broke 20:00 in a race won by Joe Goettl (17:05). Only eight contestants answered correctly last week. Gregg Robertson moved up one spot and is now tied for first with twenty-one points.
