Kent and Howell hit the trail at Brian Dowling 5K

Of all the many Dothan, Alabama races run on the Larry and Rona Dykes Trail in Westgate Park, the senior event is the Brian Dowling Memorial 5K, which has been held since at least, well, a few years ago, anyway. At the 2011 edition of the race on Saturday, April 23, Northview High's Sean Kent took time out from his track season to loop the park in a winning 18:50, finishing half a minute ahead of runner-up Brad Wood (19:21). Theron Carter, the defending champion, was third overall in 19:28. Howell was also the first master finisher, crossing the finish line over a minute ahead of the next master runner, Dale Thomas (4th, 20:34).


Less than two weeks after a 99:21 performance at the Gulf Coast Half Marathon, Megan Howell of Daleville was on the trail in Westgate winning the women's division in the Brian Dowling 5K. Howell ran 20:46, placing fifth overall. Behind Howell, Dana Cody (8th, 21:03) was the women's runner-up. Fort Rucker's Melissa Unrath, the 2011 Winston Howell 10K champion, ran 21:45 to place13th overall as the third woman and first woman master.


The Brian Dowling Memorial 5K Trail Run is an annual event of the Dothan Runners Club, which conducts the race as a benefit for the Wiregrass Humane Society.
