Susquehanna Grad Thistle Keeps Running to Success

WIMBLEDON, England – Former Susquehanna cross country standout Paul Thistle ’10, who left SU as one of the program’s most decorated runners, has enjoyed continued athletic success since graduation.

Most recently, Thistle placed third at the Surrey Road 5K in England, an event that included Surrey Cross Country Champion Paskar Owor of Belgrave. Thistle was the top-placing American at the event with a time of 15 minutes, 50 seconds.
 
Two weeks prior to the Surrey race, Thistle took home first place at the All-Wedding Day 7K, also in England, with his time of 22 minutes, 37 seconds.
 
In 2009, SU’s men’s cross country team captured the Landmark Conference championship, while Thistle himself claimed the individual title. It marked the third-straight conference title for Thistle.
