Walker and Schjott lead LakeFest

In DeFuniak Springs, Florida returning master runners ruled the fourth annual LakeFest 5K. Baker, Florida master runner Bob Walker successfully defended his 2016 title at the Saturday morning, 20 May 2017, race, winning the event in 18:57. Freeport, Florida master runner Tia Schjott had been fourth in the women's standings of the 2016 LakeFest 5K, but she came back to DeFuniak Springs in 2017 and won the women's title, placing fifth overall in 24:20.


For Bob Walker, it was an improvement of nearly half a minute on his performance in the previous year's LakeFest, where he had posted a winning time of 19:24. Behind Walker, master runner David Griffin of Panama City Beach, Florida was the runner-up in 21:24. Pensacola, Florida master runner Jay Cornelius took third in 22:38.


Like Walker, women's champ Tia Schjott also improved on her 2016 LakeFest 5K time. Schjott had run 24:46 in the third annual race. Kimberly Floyd of Enterprise, Alabama was the second woman and seventh overall in 26:07. Fort Walton Beach, Florida athlete Jacquelyn Evans was third in the women's standings and fourteenth overall in 30:32.


38 runner finished the 2017 LakeFest 5K. All proceeds of the race went to the Walton County Prevention Coalition. Race Crewe timed the event.

McCurdy and Sack land victories in the Catfish Crawl 5K

Just before Blountstown, Florida’s sixth annual Catfish Crawl 5K on Saturday morning, 20 May 2017, Matt McCurdy and Kat Sack had in common that they had both been winners the previous week at the Run For Ansley 5K in Tallahassee. McCurdy had carried away the men’s title and Sack the women’s. After a morning in Blountstown, McCurdy and Sack also had Catfish Crawl wins in common. McCurdy took the 3.1-mile race in 17:23, and Sack finished atop the women’s field in 19:47.

2017 Catfish Crawl 5K
The leaders after 1500 meters

In each of the last four years, the race at the Catfish Crawl 5K has developed like a race on the track, with a large group of leaders being gradually whittled down to a few contenders, and finally a single winner. Perhaps it’s because the out-and-back course on the Blountstown Greenway Rail Trail is as flat as any track. Or perhaps it’s just coincidence. Whatever the reason, the 2016 race followed the same script. One mile into the race there was a lead pack of five, with Tallahassee runners Matt McCurdy and Chris O’Kelley setting the pace for Elijah Sarmiento of Wewahitchka, Jesse Boyd of Blountstown, and Geb Kiros of Tallahassee. At that point, one of the athletes threw in a bit of improvisation.


“He wasn’t wearing a watch, and he asked us for the mile time,” recalled O’Kelley. “After we told him he took off.”

The surge was short-lived. After the turn-around halfway through the race, McCurdy and O’Kelley were in command. With a quarter mile to go they were still running side by side. After that?


“I just started sprinting,” said McCurdy.

O’Kelley had no response. McCurdy dashed ahead to win in 17:23 while O’Kelley was second in 17:31. Geb Kiros was the fastest master runner in the race, placing third overall in 17:43. Boyd edged Sarmiento for fourth, 17:48 to 17:50.

Chelsee Cook, Kat Sack

Kat Sack may have been coming off of a win, but Blountstown High graduating senior Chelsee Cook was the defending women’s champ of the Catfish Crawl. Cook was also the women’s course record holder, having run 21:37 in the 2016 race. During the first mile she was actually half a step ahead of Sack. The two raced closely until Sack made a break half a mile from the finish line.


“I started to pull away about a minute before the bridge,” said Sack. “She kept me on my toes. She definitely kept me on my toes.”

It took a new women’s course record for Sack to beat Cook. Sack ran 19:47, finishing fourteenth overall and becoming the only woman to ever run under 20:00 at the Catfish Crawl. Cook also clocked under the previous women’s record, running 20:01 for second in the women's standings and sixteenth overall. Tallahassee schoolteacher Laura McDermott was the third woman and 23rd overall in 21:45. Tsige Tadesse of Tallahassee was the top woman master and fourth female finisher, 27th overall in 22:18.


A record field of 212 athletes finished the Blountstown Fire Department’s 2017 Catfish Crawl 5K. Another seven participated in the event as race walkers, and 22 others completed a one-mile fun run.

Parks and Centner tally wins at Wakulla Springs

Travis Parks has raced the Friends of Wakulla Springs 5K six times. Starting in 2012, when he was a frosh at nearby Wakulla High, Parks has run the annual race each year. Through three years of running on the Wakulla High cross-country team and beyond, Parks was always on the starting line at Florida's Wakulla Springs State Park. But unlike the earlier efforts, on Saturday morning, 20 May 2017, Travis Parks won the eleventh annual Wakulla Springs 5K, edging out runner-up Mitchel Follos, 19:17 to 19:20. University of Georgia alumna Ann Centner nabbed the women's title, placing third overall in 19:53.

2017 Friends of Wakulla Springs 5K

Trevor Boeckmann was third in the men's standings and fourth overall in 20:15. Philip Sura was the first master runner and fourth male finisher, fifth overall in 20:33.


Jocelyn Chan was runner-up on the women's side, crossing the finish line fifteenth overall in 23:30. Nicole Kelly, a sixth-grader on the Deerlake Middle School cross-country team, was the third woman and 21st overall, running 24:42. Fran McLean was the top woman master and sixth female finisher, 30th overall in 26:57.


The Friends of Wakulla Springs 5K is run on trails in the Sanctuary of Wakulla Springs State Park, a tract that is seldom open to the public. One day each year, though, athletes are welcome to run through the Sanctuary, experiencing the sand and the mosquitoes in the jungle along the Wakulla River.


126 athletes finished the 2017 Wakulla Springs 5K. The race was chip-timed by Gulf Winds Track Club of Tallahassee, Florida.

Tallahassee's top 5K road times in 2017 (through April 29)

I think "upheaval" is the word that you'd use to describe what happened to the Tallahassee's 2017 road 5K rankings after the Palace Saloon 5K. The performance lists on 15 April 2017 looked nothing like they had before.


Two weeks later, the lists hardly changed at all after the Nene Fest 5K. Men's champ Jim Halley ran 17:57 at Nene Fest, but he had already run 17:38 at the Run For The Cookies back in February, putting him fourteenth on the men's list. Katie Sherron went 21:39 to win the women's title at Nene Fest, but she had posted 18:31 at the Palace Saloon 5K, so she was already the fourth fastest performer in the women's rankings.

Ani Veltcheva

Stan Linton still led the men at 15:16. Ani Veltcheva still led the women at 17:35. No one's position changed in the top 25.


There are still plenty of 5K races on USATF-certified courses on the Tallahassee roads before the end of the year, though, and any of them could produce a new top time or otherwise shake up the performance lists. Among the races to look at during the rest of 2017 are the Run 2-1-1 5K in Southwood on 3 June 2017, the Firecracker 5K in Cascades Park on 4 July 2017, the Sickle Cell 5K in Jake Gaither on 9 September 2017, Gulf Winds Track Club's Tallahassee Women's Distance Festival 5K on 23 September 2017, the Deerlake Run For Education 5K on 4 November 2017, the VetFest 5K on 11 November 2017, the Habitat For Humanity 5K on 18 November 2017, and Gulf Winds Track Club's Tallahassee Turkey Trot 5K on 23 November 2017. It's not over yet.

Tallahassee's top 10K road times in 2017 (through April 1)

As of 1 April 2017, only one 10K road race on a USATF-certified course had been run in Tallahassee, Florida during the calendar year--Gulf Winds Track Club's 42nd annual Springtime 10K. Consequently it was rather obvious what the best performances of 2017 were at that point. Even so, I thought it would a good idea to put out the first set of rankings for the year, giving athletes some times to shoot for in upcoming 10K races.


Here we go!

Chris Haynes
Chris Haynes

After a big win at the Springtime 10K, Chris Haynes leads the list with a 32:51. Haynes was second in the 2016 10K rankings on the strength of a 33:29 at the Tallahassee Turkey Trot. Charlie Johnson was ranked tenth in 2016 with a 35:30; he starts 2017 second at 33:40. Matt McCurdy ran 33:50 at the 2016 Tallahassee Turkey Trot to earn the third spot on last year's list; at the 2017 Springtime 10K McCurdy went 34:45 putting him third on this year's list. Mickey Moore is the fastest master runner on the current list, having run 36:37 at Springtime--eighth in the rankings. Last year Moore ended the year twentieth on the 10K list with a 37:41 he posted in that year's Springtime 10K.


Before the Springtime 10K, Ani Veltcheva had led the 2017 Tallahassee 5K women's rankings since 11 February 2017 with the 17:35 she posted at the Run For The Cookies. After the Springtime 10K, Ani Veltcheva also led the 2017 Tallahassee 10K women's rankings with the 37:21 she ran in that race. Katie Sherron, twelfth in the 2016 rankings at 45:22, is currently second in the 2017 rankings at 38:39. Sheryl Rosen's 39:28 at Springtime puts her third on the 2017 women's list. Rosen was third on the women's 10K list in 2016 and the women's leader in 2015. Carrie Seiberlich and Donnelly Howard are the first and second women masters in the current rankings at 41:57 and 41:58.

Ani Veltcheva

During the rest of the year, races meeting these criteria will be considered for the rankings:
  • The race has to be in Tallahassee (anywhere in Leon County is fine)
  • The race has to be run on a USATF certified course
  • The race has to have published results
  • I have to see the results
So although the Red Shoe Run 10K was run in Tallahassee, the course was uncertified and those performances won't be on the lists. Similarly, even though the Rose City Run 10K has a certified course, the race is outside of Tallahassee in Thomasville, Georgia, so you won't see those times here either. However, I'll be looking for results from races including the fourth annual Run 2-1-1 10K on 3 June 2017, the inaugural Saint Peter's Anglican Church 10K on 17 June 2017, and Gulf Winds Track Club's 42nd annual Tallahassee Turkey Trot 10K on 23 November 2017.


And while we wait for those races, here are the current lists:

Higdon and Rosen win Cairo's Marshell Wilcox 5K

Jackie Robinson Boys & Girls Club of Cairo, GeorgiaIn August 2014 the Jackie Robinson Boys & Girls Club of Cairo, Georgia staged their first annual 5K in memory of Marshell Wilcox, who had passed away the previous year. In 2016 the club moved the race to May, and Nathan Higdon finished second overall. On Saturday morning, 13 May 2017, the Marshell Wilcox Memorial 5K returned to the spring racing schedule and Nathan Higdon returned to the race. This time around fourteen-year-old Higdon won it all, running 19:26. Tallahassee lawyer Sheryl Rosen took the women's title, finishing second overall in 19:38.


Zachery Bernabe, a junior on the Cairo High cross-country team, was second in the men's standings and third overall in 19:56. Bernabe was Cairo's best 1600/3200 meter runner during the 2017 track season, running 5:26.89 and 11:53.19. Cairo High's top 800 meter runner during 2017, Nijal Sanders, was the third male and fourth overall in the Wilcox Memorial 5K at 21:21. Florida A&M University philosophy professor Mike LaBossiere was the fastest master runner in the race and the fifth male finisher, placing sixth overall in 22:56.


Kelley El-Urfali of Crawfordville, Florida was the first woman master and second female finisher, coming in twelfth overall. Keshia Cooper placed third in the women's standings and thirteenth overall in 28:06.
