Johnson and White are the top dogs of the Bulldog Dash

3rd annual Bulldog Dash 5KOn Saturday morning, 29 April 2017, hundreds of runners spilled onto the streets of Thomasville, Georgia for the 40th annual Rose City Run 10K. Just seven days later, on 6 May 2017, the runners were back on Thomasville's roads, albeit in somewhat more modest numbers. This time it was for the third annual Bulldog Dash 5K.


Thomasville master runner Chad Johnson competed in both races, but he won the Bulldog Dash, crossing the finish line at McIntyre Park Middle School in 19:31. Daniel Oldham was runner-up in 19:47. Twelve-year-old Matthew Lewis took third in 20:09.


Rosalie White, an alumna (c/o 2013) of the Thomasville High cross-country team, was the women's champ, placing eighth overall in 21:36. Angela Cipriani was second in the women's standings and eleventh overall in 23:08. A Thomasville High senior, Cipriani had finished her final cross-country season for the Bulldogs six months earlier. Wendy Owens was the top woman master and third female finisher, fourteenth overall in 23:25.


55 athletes finished the third annual Bulldog Dash 5K.
