Coach Post 10K is a day at the beach for Schlenker and McConnell

2015 Coach Post 10K / 5KIn a battle of master runners, Jeffrey Schlenker ran away from defending champion David Shearon to win the second annual Coach Post 10K on Saturday morning, 11 April 2015. Schlenker ran 38:11 for the 6.2 miles through St. Andrews State Park in Panama City Beach, Florida. Shearon covered the two-lap course in 38:53. The competition for the women's title was even closer, but master runner Rebecca McConnell prevailed over Roxanne Franin, 48:14 to 48:29. McConnell and Franin were eighth and ninth overall. 44 athletes finished the 10K

McAllister and Daily master the Draggin' in Torreya

Draggin' Tail RunnersIn a recent issue of Georgia's Great Places, a magazine published by the Friends of Georgia State Parks, an article about photography in state parks included some advice from Ranger Randell Meeks. One of his tips is:

Take your time. Hike slowly and pay attention to your surroundings. Oftentimes snakes, flowers, and insects are right right there but we pass by them without noticing.

In Florida's Torreya State Park on Saturday, 11 April 2015, 68 athletes had no use for Ranger Meeks' words. They weren't shutterbugs, though; they were the participants in the eighth annual Draggin' Tail Ultra Trail Challenge, featuring a 50K and a 25K race up and down the Apalachicola River bluffs. Charn McAllister won the 50K event, covering the rugged 31 miles in 4:54:04. Some of his competition might consider handing him a camera before the next race. In winning the race, McAllister unseated the Trail Challenge's seven-time defending champion and record holder, Vince Molosky. Until this year Molosky had not only never lost the 50K Trail Challenge, no one but Molosky had ever won it. This time around, though, Molosky was runner-up in 5:16:14. Andy Roberts was the fastest master runner in the 50K, placing third overall in 5:38:12.


Ashley Daily topped the women's standings, placing seventh overall in 6:15:07. Daily had also won the women's title at the 2013 Challenge, where she set the women's event record of 5:47:48. Sandra Garrett was the first woman master and second female finisher in the 50K, coming in 12th overall in 7:36:10. On an unseasonably warm and humid day, 18 ultrarunners finished the long race.

Savary and Wheatcraft take their turn with the worms

Of Charles Darwin's books, the most famous are The Origin of the Species and The Descent of Man. Less known is his last scientific book, The Formation of Vegetable Mould through the Action of Worms. In the pages of the latter Darwin wrote, “It has often been said that if the ground is beaten or otherwise made to tremble, worms believe that they are pursued by a mole and leave their burrows.”


That earthworms could be driven above ground by vibration is the basis for worm fiddling, or worm grunting as some call it. Worm grunters drive a stake into the ground, draw a metal rod across it like a fiddle bow to create vibrations, then harvest for fish bait the worms that pop out of the ground. Worm grunting has been practiced near Sopchoppy, Florida, for decades, so Vanderbilt University scientist Ken Catania went there in 2008 to see if there was anything to Darwin's theory--that worms' flight from vibration was an adaptation to avoid moles. Working with two of Sopchoppy's professional worm grunters, Catania was able to demonstrate that the reaction of worms to grunting was identical to their reaction to the movements of a hungry mole.


Even before Sopchoppy performed this service for science, the village had been holding an Worm Gruntin' Festival on the second Saturday of each April. Of course, a festival requires a 5K road race, so there was a Worm Gruntin' 5K. The race faded away after a few years, but it was revived in 2012. Stronger than ever, the Worm Gruntin' 5K returned to the streets of Sopchoppy on Saturday morning, 11 April 2015. North Florida Christian School junior Chase Savary won the 3.1-mile event in 17:45, the first of 153 finishers. Wakulla High frosh Dylan Peebles finished secon in 18:28, just ahead of another Wakulla High runner, senior Travis Parks. Parks was third in 18:39. William Carter edged Jeff Kuperberg for the top master spot in the 5K, Carter taking 11th in 21:29 while Kuperberg finished 12th in 21:34.


The 2015 Worm Gruntin' 5K women's crown went to Wakulla High frosh Hannah Wheatcraft. Wheatcraft, 15, placed 14th overall in 22:05. Connie Lewis, a Wakulla High junior, took second on the women's side, finishing 15th overall in 22:49. Juanita Chalmers, 32, was the third female finisher, coming in 18th overall in 24:12. Belinda Wharton came out ahead of Connie Clarke 25:09 to 25:10 in a close fight for the top woman master spot. Wharton and Clarke were seventh and eighth in the women's standings, coming in 24th and 25th overall.


In 2016 the second Saturday in April will be the 9th. Expect another Sopchoppy Worm Gruntin' Festival and another Worm Gruntin' 5K then.
