The hot and rainy weather that we've had it seems the girls times have been more affected than the boys times in terms of year to year improvement. Just like with the boys, most of the top girls have not improved by much, but the season is still young so we should start to see more improvement here soon.
Notably though, Phoebe Bates has dropped almost 15 seconds off of her best August time last season. With the weather getting cooler and the Carmel team getting into the deeper part of their schedule with more competitive races, we should hopefully see her begin to drop even more time.
Check out the top 500 girls who have improved their 5K time in the month of August below.
