Thursday, June 21 -- The threat of rain did not deter many hardy runners from gathering to cheer on the Squirrels from section 213. We enjoyed 4½ innings of exciting baseball as the Squirrels beat the Altoona Curves 2-1. Rain shortened the night out...and washed out the fireworks...but we did get to see them deploy the tarp over the infield (woohoo)!
The top finishers were:
Overall Male - Matt Hannay, 17:42.0
Overall Female - Tiel Westbrook, 18:42.2
Master Male - Alan Baugh, 20:40.4
Master Female - Terri Gerloff, 25:12.1
THANK YOU to those who made it all happen: all of the VOLUNTEERS; our presenting sponsor Sentry, gold sponsor Lucky Road Run Shop, and bronze sponsor Urban Farmhouse; the officers of the Chesterfield County Police Department; and race director Sarah Akin and Matt Nordin.
