Race Director and Paden City High's Athletic Director, Bob Burton, lined everyone up at the start. The coach's whistle was blown and it was time to race!
Getting out in front early into the race was last year's 5K winner
David Schupbach. Leading at the 1/2 mile mark, Schupbach
stayed 2 minutes or more ahead of the pack to beat his time from 98'
by over a minute. He finished 1st Overall with a time of 18:41.
Donald Lane(20:08) ran a strong race receiving the 2nd
Overall trophy, and Adam Wells(20:37) finished 3rd Overall,

The race for the 2nd Place Overall Woman's trophy was tight. Abby Miller and Mandy Weese ran down the last stretch to the finish line together. Kicking up some dust and finishing as the 2nd Woman was Abby Miller(25:22), beating 3rd place Mandy Weese(25:23) by only a second.
The race was a lot of fun, and everyone stuck around afterwards for the awards and some Freezie-Pops! Special thanks goes out to the Race Directors Bob Burton & Fred King. Let's not forget their "better halves", Sharon Burton & Debbie King, who did a wonderful job with the race results! We'll see everybody next Labor Day!
