Myles Gibson and Ann Centner take the Tiger

Hungry TigerIn 2014, Myles Gibson placed third at the second annual Tasty Tiger Trot 5K. In 2015, the Donalsonville, Georgia master runner came in second at the third annual Tasty Tiger Trot. Inductive reasoning is never a sure thing, but was a case where it worked--on Saturday morning, 30 July 2016, Myles Gibson won the fourth annual Tasty Tiger Trot. Gibson covered the 3.1-mile course on the streets near Dothan, Alabama's Westgate Park in 19:09, finishing close to 90 meters ahead of the next runner. Former University of Georgia distance runner Ann Centner won the women's title, placing fifth overall in 20:23.


Evan Crawford and Jack Brockman took the next two places behind Gibson, Crawford second in 19:30 and Brockman third in 19:40. Crawford and Brockman are both headed into their sophomore year cross-country season at Enterprise High. Bob Walker was the top master runner in the race, placing ninth overall in 21:28.


April Hill was second in the women's standings and thirteenth overall in 22:33. Jackie Birge took third in the women's standings, placing nineteenth overall in 23:24. Missy Sexton was the first woman master and fourth female finisher, coming in 26th overall in 25:11. Sexton was the 2014 Tasty Tiger women's champ, and was also the top woman master in the 2013 race.


114 athletes finished the 2016 Tasty Tiger Trot 5K. The race is an annual fund raiser for the Dothan High cross-country team. After three years as a cross-country race on the Westgate Park Trail, the event moved to the roads in 2016.
