Avenger, Bielmyer run to Thanksgiving Day wins in Valdosta

Valdosta's Masked Avenger ran 17:48 to best a field of nearly 200 runners at the 2010 Valdosta Thanksgiving Day 5K on Thursday morning, November 25. It was the Avenger's third straight win and second that week after victories at the Blazer Corps 5K on November 13 and VSU Run To Thanksgiving 5K on November 20. About 150 meters behind the Avenger, Austin McDonald clocked 18:22 to finish as runner-up in the race for the second straight year. Placing fifth overall at 19:36, Bret Wagonhorst was the fastest master in the race, beating out Rusty Jones (9th, 20:31) for the honor. Dr. Gretchen Bielmyer (13th, 21:31) won the women's title, finishing just ahead of runner-up Brandi Faircloth (16th, 21:42) of Hahira. Nancy Elam of Valdosta finished 51st in 25:18 as the first woman master and 19th woman overall. Seven seconds back, Pavo's Tracy Davis (52nd, 25:25) was the second woman master.


Valdosta proved that you don't need a lot of bells and whistles to have a good running event. Not even a T-shirt was offered at the no-frills event, but 191 athletes ran and finished the Thanksving Day 5K. Sponsored by Get Active, the no-frills event charged only a seven-dollar entry fee (or five dollars with a new, unwrapped toy for Toys-For-Tots).
