Elam and Morse warm-up for cross country with Barnes 5K wins

Barnes HealthCareIt has been 105 years since 1909, when Charles W. Barnes opened the doors of Barnes Drug Store in Valdosta, Georgia. As Barnes HealthCare, in 2009 the business marked its 100th birthday with a road race through Valdosta, the Barnes 100 Years 5K. What could be a better way to celebrate?


The race became an annual affair, and on Saturday morning, 19 July 2014, Andrew Elam won the sixth annual Barnes 100 Years 5K, running 18:04. Mackenzie Morse finished atop the women's standings, placing fifth overall in 20:12. Rick Mazurkiewicz of Valdosta was the fastest master in the field, coming in seventh overall in 20:44. Valdosta's Alice Smoot, champion at the 2011 Barnes race, was the top woman master in 2014, finishing 12th overall in 21:47. 74 athletes finished the race.


The youth of the runners at the front of race contrasted sharply with the age of the century-old sponsor of the event. Andrew Elam, who finished over 400 meters ahead of the next runner, is a rising junior on the cross-country team at Lowndes High. Brian Miller, the runner-up at 19:47, is also a cross-country runner in the class of 2016, but at Southland Academy in Americus, Georgia. DeShon Taylor, third at 20:07, will be an incoming freshman on the Valdosta High team. Daniel Swilley was a few steps behind Taylor in fourth at 20:09. Swilley will be a sophomore at Lowndes High, where he ran cross country last fall. All four could meet again on cross-country courses this fall.


Another pair of athletes you might see racing on the trails in the fall are the top two in the female division at the Barnes 5K. That competition was a Mackenzie-vs.-Makenzee affair, with Mackenzie Morse finishing fifth overall ahead of sixth-place Makenzee Page, 20:12 to 20:31. Morse's time was just fractions of a second off the Barnes 5K women's record, set last year by Mary Alice Smoot who graduated from Valwood School this past spring. Both Morse and Page are headed to Lowndes High in the fall, where Morse will be a sophomore and Page a freshman.


All proceeds of the 2014 Barnes 5K went to benefit House of Heroes. Timing and finish line services for the race were provided by A Course/Line, LLC, of Valdosta, Georgia.

The Crowdis Run continues with wins by Gibson and Winkler

Myles GibsonOver two decades ago in Blakely, Georgia, Donalsonville's Myles Gibson won the 1993 James H. Crowdis 5K. It was the thirteenth annual Crowdis, and anyone superstitious about the number thirteen will be interested to know that thirteenth race had to be rescheduled because of a severe winter storm. Sporting events don't often get snowed out in south Georgia. The thirteenth Crowdis 5K wasn't unlucky for Gibson, though, and neither was the eighteenth race on 19 July 2014 where the master runner picked up his second Crowdis title with an 18:12 victory. The Crowdis 5K had been on hiatus from 1996 to 2011 before being revived as an annual event in 2012; Gibson is the first runner to have won both the original race and the revived one. Blakely athlete Margaret Scarborough had also run in the original Crowdis 5K during the 1990s, finishing high in the women's standings but never at the top. As master runner Margaret Winkler, though, she won the women's division at the 2014 Crowdis, placing 16th overall in 23:24. It was the largest Crowdis 5K since the race's revival, with 103 finishers.


Davy HelmsThe race started just after 8:15 AM from in front of Blakely First United Methodist Church. The runners were sent on their way with a countdown by race director Tony Gilbert, the winner of the first James H. Crowdis 5K in 1981. Myles Gibson was out in front after the first 800 meters, with Bainbridge High runner Caleb Harris a few steps back with Ed Shattles. Davy Helms trailed Harris and Shattles. When the runners turned around at the halfway point to head back to the church, Gibson had a lead of nearly half a minute. Harris was still in second, but Helms had moved up to run with Harris and Shattles.


1200 meters from the finish line Gibson was still running away from the rest of the field Meanwhile Helms had dropped Shattles and Harris to take over second. Chasing Helms, Shattles had taken sole possession of third, leaving Harris behind in fourth.


Margaret WinklerRain started to fall as Gibson approached the finish line. The Donalsonville master runner barely had time to get damp, though, before he raced home first in 18:12. When Davy Helms claimed second in 19:23, the pavement was just starting to get moist. Ed Shattles finished third in 19:42 and Caleb Harris fourth in 20:07 before the rain got heavy. It was a full shower, though, when Kurt Anthony placed fifth in 20:37.


Margaret Winkler got ahead of the women's field early and widened the margin steadily throughout the race on her way to her 23:24 win. Bonifay master runner Val Lichner was second in the women's standings for the second year in a row, placing 18th overall in 24:29. Likewise, Jill Wofsey had been third behind Lichner in 2013 and was again in 2014; Wofsey was 20th overall in 24:47.
