Longest Day 5K 2013 …. Perfect!


Longest Day 5K 2013 …. Perfect!

June 21 – Our second annual 5K had perfect weather and 150 participants (up from 121 last year) and over 100 spectators .     We had over 25 participants in the fun run at 7pm followed by the main race at 7:15 .  Adam Zukowski finished a close first place at  18:55.4 breaking his own course record of last year (19:15).  Kyle Rhoads was a close second at 18:58.4.  Laura Campbell finished first in the women’s division at 21:50 .  Runners ranged from age 7 to 74.

Fun was had by all with lots of baked goods, good camaraderie, and a celebration of the longest evening of the year! Thanks to everyone, Libby Hill Trails raised funds that will help pay for trail maintenance  and other trail projects.
