Leisey and Smith get wins at Get-A-Mammy 5K

Hahira athlete Kyle Leiser led a field of 87 athletes around the streets of Valdosta, Georgia, to win the fourth annual Get-A-Mammy 5K on Saturday morning, 27 September 2014. Finishing almost half a kilometer ahead of the next runner, Leisey's time for the 3.1-mile race was 19:47. Adam Gatzemeier of Valdosta finished runner-up in 21:50.


On the women's side, Valdosta's Elizabeth Smith didn't finish with as big a lead as Leisey, but she still won the women's title by a comfortable margin of over 100 meters, placing third overall in 22:04. Valdosta master runner Melanie Ellis was second in the women's standings, coming in fourth overall in 22:37.


Since 2010 the race has been an annual fundraiser for Get-A-Mammy, Inc., a non-profit whose programs include providing and administering funds for free mammograms to those who need financial assistance in obtaining a mammogram. 87 athletes finished the 2014 Get-A-Mammy 5K.

Kelly and Elam tops on the trail at Quail Trail

Quail Trail 5KSouth of Thomasville, Georgia, on Saturday morning, 27 September, Valdosta High cross-country coach won the sixth annual Quail Trail 5K, racing around the grounds of Pebble Hills Plantation in 17:40. Tallahassee's Jay Smith was the fastest master runner in the race, finishing runner-up in 18:54. Just behind Smith, Bainbridge, Georgia, master runner Greg Waddell placed third in 19:11. Valdosta master runner Nancy Elam was the first woman finisher, coming in 18th overall in 24:03. About a hundred meters back, Amy Zboralski was the women's runner-up, finishing 21st overall in 24:40. Destiny Roe of Valdosta's Viking Runners Club was third in the women's standings, placing 23rd overall in 24:59. Roe would race again that morning, returning to finish fourth in the middle school girls' 3K race.


Since 2009, the Quail Trail 5K has been the opening event in the Quail Trail Invitational, part of a program that includes high school and middle school races. Coach Kelly was at the Quail Trail with his Valdosta Middle School Team in 2012 when he won the race, and again in 2013 when he finished second to Lowndes High sophomore Chance Roe.


101 athletes finished the 2014 Quail Trail 5K.

Maclay harriers make themselves at home at Silver Lake

George Gwynn, Jake Mazziotta, Clay MilfordSilver Lake isn't anyone's home course. The closest high school is over fifteen kilometers away, and there hadn't been a cross-country meet at the Silver Lake Recreation Area since 2007. Nevertheless, six Big Bend schools sent their cross country runners to the park on Saturday morning, 27 September 2014 for the high school race at the Salute To Prefontaine 5K. And even though it was neutral ground, the Maclay athletes treated it like their home course, winning both boys' and girls' team titles.


Unlike a typical high school cross-country meet, both the boys and the girls ran together in a single race. The Maclay boys were soon in command, with Clay Milford (1st, 18:25), Jake Mazziotta (2nd, 18:29), and George Gwynn (3rd, 18:29) taking the top three places. With Marauders James McClure finishing ninth in 19:45 and George Escobar tenth in 19:48, Maclay had put all five of their scorers in the top ten for a sum of 25 points. Wakulla took second with 45 points and Aucilla was third with 73.

Haleigh MartinMaclay may have performed like it was the Marauders' home course, but the park at Silver Lake looks like most of the land in Wakulla County. Wakulla High sophomore Haleigh Martin made the most of the familiar terrain. Overtaking early leader Caroline Willis of Maclay, Martin built up a lead of over 100 meters on her way to a 21:19 win. With that and earlier victories at the Cougar Challenge and the Dolphin Dash, Martin ran her record to a perfect three wins in three outings this season. Willis was second in 21:50, the first of a deluge of Maclay blue-and-white uniforms to cross the line. Maclay took seven of the top ten places, with scorers Molly McCann placing third in 22:36, Kenzie Mazziotta fourth in 23:29, Lindsay James fifth in 23:47, and Katie Whitworth seventh in 24:03. After that Maclay had 21 points and the girls' team title. Wakulla was second with 36 points and Aucilla third with 65.

Lake and Atkinson salute Prefontaine with speed

Chris LakeGulf Winds Track Club staged their 39th annual "Salute to Prefontaine" 5K on Saturday morning, 27 September 2014, just west of Tallahassee at Silver Lake Recreation Area in the Apalachicola National Forest. The event isn't your typical memorial to Steve Prefontaine.


The distance runner Steve Prefontaine wasn't a native son of Eugene, Oregon, but the city couldn't have loved him more if he had been. After his untimely death in 1975, Prefontaine's friends and fans worked to construct "Pre's Trail." The trail opened in Fall of 1975, just months after Prefontaine died. It was the kind of path that he had seen while competing in Europe--smooth, wide, and surfaced with bark and other natural materials. Pre's Trail averages eight feet wide, spacious enough for cross-country meets and community races. Volunteers keep the vegetation trimmed back from the trail.


A year after Pre's Trail opened, the first Salute to Prefontaine 5K was run in Tallahassee. The course has changed over the years, but it has been always been on paths, jeep trails, and forest roads surfaced with loose sand and other natural materials, but mostly loose sand. The course may actually be a maximum of eight feet wide in some spots, but I'd have to think hard to be able to name those spots. Before the race, volunteers drag sticks and logs out of the woods and onto the course.


Cora AtkinsonIt's a hypothetical question as to which memorial Steve Prefontaine would consider more fitting. Maybe they're equally appropriate in that they're both vehicles by which people express their love for running. Which is a nice thought, but my preference would still be for the memorial where I'd be less likely to trip, fall down, and hurt myself.


More than 300 runners showed up in the Forest were less timid on the trails, though, and showed up for the 2014 Salute to Prefontaine, over 180 in an open 5K and the rest in a later high school 5K race. So many showed up that the line into the Silver Lake Recreation Area got backed up, and the 8:30 AM start had to be delayed by 15 minutes. But the race did start, and Chris Lake bolted to the front of the field. Vince Molosky tucked in behind Lake, managing to stay on his heels until right before the halfway point, when Lake started to open a gap. Meanwhile, Patrick Dawson of the Shaw's Running Team was closing in on Molosky. During the second half of the race Dawson moved into second, but couldn't break contact with Molosky. Nate Kaiser closed in, also challenging for second place.


Patrick DawsonChris Lake raced home to win in 17:43. Patrick Dawson held off a late charge from Vince Molosky to hang on to second, 17:55 to 17:56. Nate Kaiser was close behind them in fourth at 17:59. In a tight race for the top master spot, Michael Martinez edged out Philip Sura 20:24 to 20:26, the two master runners finishing seventh and eighth overall.


Renee Cox led the women's field almost from the start of the race, but Cora Atkinson always had Cox in her sights. A Life University cross-country runner, Atkinson closed on Cox during the second half of the race. With 200 meters to go, Atkinson was on Cox's shoulder, with Cox fighting to stay ahead. Atkinson flashed by, though, taking the women's title with a 22:30, finishing 29th overall. Cox was the women's runner-up, coming in 30th overall in 22:33. Anna Busby, the previous week's Women's Distance Festival 5K champion, was third in the women's standings, 35th overall in 22:59. Paula O'Neill was the fourth woman finisher and first woman master, 52nd overall in 24:36.
