Henry Plowden and Ann Centner both ring the bell a second time in the Jingle Bell Jog 10K

Saturday, 8 December 2018, was a morning for defending champions in Albany, Georgia's 30th annual Jingle Bell Jog 10K. Henry Plowden won the 6.2-mile race for the second year in a row, running 37:44--over a minute faster than his winning time in 2017. Ann Centner of Blakely, Georgia successfully defended her title as the top woman in the 10K, placing second overall in 39:13.


Plowden was coming off a successful high school cross-country season; just five weeks earlier the Westover High junior had taken ninth in the GHSA-4A boys' race at the State Championships. The top master runner in the Jingle Bell Jog 10K was Carl Plowden, second in the men's standings and third overall in 45:12. Jaren Hill of Americus, Georgia was the third male finisher and fourth overall in 45:38.


Cordele, Georgia's Stacey McGarr was the first woman master in the 10K and second female finisher, eighth overall in 47:05. Danice Roberts of Leesburg, Georgia took third on the women's side, placing thirteenth overall in 49:16.

Joel Rich and Shana Ryberg Pearsons take the Tallahassee Ultra-Distance Classic 50 Mile

“You couldn’t ask for better weather,” declared Gary Griffin. “Cool but not cold, overcast, and no wind.”


Griffin wasn’t talking about weather for going to the beach, but optimum conditions for long-distance running. That Saturday morning, Dec. 8, he was in the middle of some very long-distance running, the fifty-kilometer race in Gulf Winds Track Club’s 38th annual Tallahassee Ultra-Distance Classic. Of the athletes running in Wakulla Springs State Park that morning, Griffin wasn’t the only one with good things to say about the conditions, but you had to give his comments some weight. It was his 22nd finish at the Ultra, and he had also directed the event for several years. This year, the 69-year-old master runner placed ninth in the 50K, completing the 31-mile run in 5:08:08.

Joel Rich

If performance is any indication, Joel Rich didn't have any problems with the conditions, either. The Gainesville, Florida master runner won the 50-mile, the longest race at the Classic. The course for the 50-mile race is just over eight laps around a ten-kilometer loop, and Rich slowed slightly during his final two laps, but still averaged under eight minutes for each of the 50 miles. He was also still widening his lead on the competition--when Rich finished the 50 miles, the next runner had only just passed the 46-mile mark.

Shana Ryberg Pearsons

Rich had some company for the first half of the race, running the first four laps with another Gainesville master runner, Patrick Gallagher. But Gallagher faded on the fifth lap, leaving Rich to finish the race on his own. While Rich went on to win the 50 miler, Gallagher dropped out after 50 kilometers.


Jack McDermott of Tallahassee, the 2007 winner of the 50-mile, took second in 7:24:24. Shana Ryberg Pearsons, a master runner from Aiken, South Carolina, was the first woman in the race, placing third overall in 7:32:59. 2015 TUDC 50-mile champ Mark Tombrink was fourth in 7:53:08, just ahead of the 7:53:20 posted by fifth-place finisher Ettore Aldrovandi--practically a photo finish in a race of that length.

Thomas Dever

There were only two runners on the course moving faster than Joel Rich, and both of them were in shorter races. Thomas Dever was one of those two. A 61-year-old master runner from Panama City Beach, Dever won the 50-kilometer race for the second year in a row, posting a winning time of 3:39.50. Darcy Brinkmann of Tallahassee had to scoot a little faster at the end of the 50K to break five hours, but she did--running 4:58:58, Brinkmann was the first woman in the race and fifth overall.

Darcy Brinkmann

Jay Silvanima and Nancy Stedman had taken over the Tallahassee Ultra-Distance Classic in 2014, but they decided that 2018 would be their last year as race directors. Their valedictory gift to the event was the addition of a marathon-length race. Elvis Maradzike took first in the 26.2-miler, running 3:14.23. Tallahassee master runner Laura Reina was the top woman in the race as well as the overall runner-up at 3:35:18.

Elvis Maradzike

It took more than ten hours for the last runner to cross the finish line. He was the fourteenth runner in the 50 miler, while another 54 athletes had finished the 50K. Twenty completed the marathon. Gulf Winds Track Club chip-timed the races.
