Teammates separate themselves from the field.

Alan Webb and Galen Rupp are most known for their impressive exploits on the track, but the Oregon Track Club teammates showed the assembled elite field of 40 runners at the Applied Materials Silicon Valley Turkey Trot in San Jose, California that they can dominate on the roads, too.

Chasing Marc Davis’ American 5K road record of 13:24–and the $10,000 at stake for eclipsing that mark–Webb and Rupp separated themselves from the field early on in the race. In the end, it was Webb who broke the tape first, clocking a winning time of 13:36 to edge Rupp by 3 seconds.

Scott Bauhs, who won this race in 2008, finished third in 13:47. Diego Estrada (4th, 13:50) and Scott Smith (5th, 13:51) round out the top-5.
