Ready, set........
Although skies were cloudy and temperatures were brisk early this morning, racers from across West Virginia headed to the FBI Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division in Clarksburg for the first annual Jerry Dove Memorial 5K Race. Organizers say the race was very successful, drawing 236 participants this year. The race was sponsored by the Federal Bureau of Investigation Recreation Association (FBIRA), a non-profit organization which encourages athletic, recreation and overall fitness activities among FBI employees and the communities that they server.

Trophies were presented to the overall top three male and female finishers. Those recipients are as follows: Men's Division - First Place, Larry Taylor, Fayetteville, finish time - 15:32; Second Place, Joey Herron, Fairmont, finish time - 18:09; and Third Place, Billy Joe Peyton, Huntington, finish time - 18:20. Women's Division - First Place, Sallie Beth Johnson, Morgantown, finish time - 20:35; Second Place, Susan Verona, Shinnston, finish time - 21:22; and Third Place, Heather King, Fairmont, finish time - 22:35. Additionally, awards were presented to the first three male and female finishers in six different age brackets. (See age group results for details.)

The 5K course was a double loop course with the start and finish both on the FBI entrance road called Jerry Dove Drive, named in honor of West Virginia native, Special Agent Jerry Dove. Agent Dove was killed in the line of duty on April 11, 1986, during a shootout with two serial bank robbers while assigned to the Miami Division.

Following the race, participants were provided with refreshments donated by several area restaurants. In addition, local businesses also donated items to be presented as door prizes during the awards ceremony following the race.
