On March 22, Easter weekend, we had the largest field of runners ever! And we thought Easter weekend would hurt our attendance! On the contrary, a record 154 finishers enjoyed the mostly cross-country course, neat T-shirts & free pancake breakfast. There were some pre-registered no-shows and 1 runner who did not finish. The weather couldn't have been more perfect!
This year's winner was 15-year-old Matthew Garmon. And he happens to be a local! Yea! Our very own Tiffany Cochran won Overall Female; Cheryl Monroe won Female Masters 40 & Over; Robin Smith won Female Grand Masters 50 & Over; Charles Strickland won Male Great-Grandmasters 60 & Over; and Mary Beth Strickland won Female Great-Grandmasters 60 & Over. Needless to say, we're proud of our track club members!

Only one person sent photos to us. Most were of the 1 mile but this photo shows the 10K'ers ready to start. The other photo shows the 200+ 1 milers starting their race.
