Olympian Lisa Uhl To Make Competitive Debut In Chicago At 2013 Bank Of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K

The 2013 Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K will be Uhl’s first competition in Chicago.

USATF National Club Team 8 km Championships to feature country’s top teamsAs the Bank of America Shamrock Shuffle 8K prepares to host the inaugural USATF National Club Team 8 km Championships in conjunction with the April 7 race, the top USATF-member racing teams from across the country are setting their sights on Chicago. Forty-five elite teams from 10 states will fight for a national title and a share of the $20,000 prize purse. Club members range from competitive post-collegiate athletes to top American runners who continue to pursue their athletic goals with the structural and financial support of registered USATF clubs.

The Hansons-Brooks Distance Project from Rochester Hills, Mich., champions of both the men’s and women’s divisions in 2012, are back to defend their titles. The men’s squad features Bobby Curtis, the 2008 NCAA 5,000-meter champion and 27:24.67 10,000-meter performer. The women’s team is led by marathon specialists Melissa Johnson-White and Dot McMahan, both past top 10 finishers at the Bank of America Chicago Marathon.

The defending champions will face fierce competition from a host of new and returning clubs. Among the teams making their first appearance in Chicago are the Twin Cities Track Club from Minneapolis, Minn., the Asics Aggies Running Club and Impalas Racing Team from Northern California, Adidas/Team Rogue from Austin, Texas, and the Greater Boston Track Club from Boston, Mass.

Returning teams include men’s two-time champion (2010 and 2011) Wisconsin Runner Racing Team from Racine, Wisc., Naperville Running Company from Naperville, Ill., Playmakers Elite/New Balance from Okemos, Mich., New Balance Silicon Valley from Northern California, Team Nebraska from Omaha, Neb., and Fleet Feet/Nike Racing Team from Chicago.
