Snooping around on the Internet on the eve before the Take 5 in the Garden road race.

For those of you who are into times and distances (I obsess about them) here are the records for the Take 5 race, according to the Pikes Peak Road Runners.

The Brits hold both the men's 5-mile and 5K records.

Kevin Sheppard, 26, of Abington, set the 5-mile record in 2005, ripping the hilly course in 25 minutes, 20 seconds.

Andrew Robinson, 25, of Sussex, set the 5K mark in 2003clocking 15:17.

In the women's races, local runners have dominated.

Stephanie Jones, of Colorado Springs is the queen in the 5-mile race. She set the record of 30:49 in 2007 at age 36.

At 5K, Allison McLaughlin (pictured) flew to a time of 18:18 in 2008. She was 17 and preparing for her senior year at Air Academy High School at the time. Last November, McLaughlin, who now runs for Colorado University, placed fifth in the NCAA cross country championships.
