The Barnes 100 grew more than older in the past year. For one thing, it grew larger, attracting 119 finishers this year as opposed to less than 100 in the inaugural race. And for another thing, it grew faster, at least up front, as Daniel Broadhead crushed the competition and the course record. Broadhead, a rising sophomore on the cross-country team at Wayne County High School, ran 16:45 for the win. He crossed the finish line nearly half a kilometer ahead of the runner-up and defending champion, Valdosta's Masked Avenger, who fought off a challenge from Scott Gardner of Naylor, 18:27 to 18:28. Gardner was the top master runner in the field that morning; his time stands as the new masters' record for the Barnes 100.
Valdosta State cross-country runner Angelina Horne ran 20:31 to finish as the top woman after having finished second in the women's division at the 2009 Barnes 100. It was the second straight win on the Valdosta streets for Horne, who won the Valdosta Independence Day 5K earlier this month. Alice Smoot, less than 90 meters behind Horne, was the second woman in and the first master woman, finishing seventh overall in 20:53.
