Honeycutt and Utley take titles at rainy Run For Love 5K

Racing through pouring rain, Tifton's teen triathlon sensation, Hunter Honeycutt ran 16:29 to win a wet 21st annual Run For Love 5K Evening Run on Saturday, 7 August 2010. The race was held on the campus of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton, Georgia. Honeycutt crossed the line a comfortable 120 meters ahead of his closest challenger, Darton College distance runner Adam Ross. Ross finished in 16:54. The third runner in and top master in the race was Todd Smoot, the cross-country coach at Valdosta State University. Smoot's time was 18:37. In the women's division the defending champion, Katie Utley of Tifton, narrowly defeated Valdosta's Alice Smoot, 21:29 to 21:33. Alice Smoot was also the first woman master finisher in the race.


It was 16-year-old Hunter Honeycutt's first win at the Run For Love; he had previously placed 23rd in 2006 and 8th in 2007. Honeycutt's biggest successes have been in the triathlon and duathlon. On 25 April 2010 he placed fourth at the USA Triathlon Junior National Championship in the duathlon at Richmond, Virginia. Honeycutt's performance earned him an invitation to compete in the 2010 ITU Duathlon World Championships in Edinburgh, Scotland on September 4.


A steady rain delayed the start of the 2010 Run For Love, which was scheduled for 7:45pm. Around 8:00 the race director decided that although the rain wasn't going to relent, the sun was going to go down, and sent the runners on their way at 8:05. If people were scared off by the weather it wasn't reflected in the numbers; the 147 finishers in the 2010 race is comparable to the other recent editions of the Run For Love. The race is put on by the Sunbelt Running Club and raises money for the cross-country teams of Tift County High School.
