Dobson and Unrath rule the roads in the 33rd annual Winston Howell 10K

It sometimes seems like the Winston Howell 10,000-meter Road Race has been around Hartford, Alabama as long as Winston Howell himself, but the run is actually only about half the age of the runner. Still, the race goes back to 1979, making the 12 March 2011 running of the event the 33rd annual 10K.


Master runner Matt Dobson of Jay, Florida won this time around, running 35:01. Dobson finished nearly 800 meters ahead of the defending champion, Tallahassee's Kevin Sweeny, a master runner who covered the course in 38:03. Melissa Unrath placed 8th overall in 44:44 as the first female and the first female master; the Fort Rucker, Alabama runner finished as the second woman and first woman master six weeks earlier at Dothan's Hog Wild 15K. 300 meters behind Unrath, Beth Sutkowy (9th, 46:08) was the women's runner-up.


The race was run on a USATF certifed course (AL96005JD) that started and finished near the National Guard Armory in Hartford, Alabama. The Hartford Civic Club sponsors the race, and all proceeds are benefit Hartford's Boys Scout Troop 32.
