Bulldog MascotYou may not know how many road races Dan Butzin has won in 2016, but it's a good number. If you are keeping track, add one more to the total--Butzin picked up another victory on Saturday morning, 25 June 2016, at the third annual Georgia Military College 5K in Valdosta, Georgia. The Valdosta distance runner ran a course record 18:38, winning the five kilometer race by more than a kilometer. Katie Presler of Valdosta was the first woman in the race, placing eighth overall in 26:02. 73 athletes finished the 3.1-mile event.

Calhoun and Harris are first in the Freedom 5K

South of Tallahassee, Florida in Wakulla Springs State Park, Wright Calhoun outran a field of 138 athletes to win the fourth annual Freedom 5K. Calhoun's time on the sandy 3.1-mile course was 17:48. Madison Harris won the women's title, placing sixth overall in 20:00.


Calhoun led the race almost from the very start, rolling up a lead of over 100 meters on Dan Baur, who finished runner-up in 18:12. Just months away from starting his first collegiate cross country season at Columbus State University, Calhoun had mostly positive things to say about the race.

Wright Calhoun

"I thought it was a blast," said Calhoun. "The course was gorgeous. I really love the trees. I did run into a spiderweb, though."


It was probably one of the area's many golden orb spiders, familiar to anyone who spends time in the Big Bend's forests during the warm months. The 137 runners trailing Calhoun can be grateful that he knocked down the web for them. Calhoun didn't do anything to settle the sand for his pursuers, though. After a stretch of dry weather, the sand roads that made up much of the course were especially soft and difficult to run on.


"I was so loose it was like beach running," said Myles Gibson. Gibson, from Donalsonville, Georgia, was the fastest master runner in the race, coming in third overall in 19:01.

Dan Baur

"That was brutal," concurred Brittney Skiles, a cross country and track coach at Truett McConnell University.


Skiles had led the women's field in the early going, before being caught by Madison Harris. "We ran together till about two miles, then she took off," said Skiles.


"Just past the two-mile mark," agreed Harris. "Coach had told me who she was, and I knew she was Margaret Wiedeman's coach, but that was all."

Madison Harris

Mostly, though, Harris knew that Skiles was someone she wanted be beat that day. In the last mile Harris opened up a gap of nearly a minute on her way to finishing first in the women's division. It was Harris' third win in the Freedom 5K, and even with the bad footing her 20:00 time was her fastest performance yet on the course.


"I knew it was going to be sandy," said Harris. "But not that sandy!"


Skiles was second in the women's standings, placing tenth overall in 20:56. Alli Hay, a rising senior on the Pataula Academy cross country team, was the third female finisher and eleventh overall in 21:11.

Brittney Skiles

Hosted by the Wakulla High Cross Country Boosters, proceeds of the fourth annual Freedom 5K went to support Wakulla High Cross Country team. "This is our major fundraiser of the year," said Wakulla High cross country coach Paul Hoover.


Gulf Winds Track Club of Tallahassee chip-timed the race.
