Burnett and Smoot tops at Valdosta's Get-A-Mammy 5K

Valdosta marathon runner David Burnett ran 3.1 miles in 18:14 to finish at the front of a field of nearly 150 runners in the Get-A-Mammy 5K near McKey Park in Valdosta, Georgia on Saturday morning, 1 October 2011. Not quite 50 meters behind Burnett was the runner-up and top master in the race, Wes Hand (2nd, 18:25) of Nashville, Georgia. The next three athletes across the finish line were the top three women in the race, led by Valdosta's Alice Smoot, who at 20:59 was also the fastest woman master in the race. Another Valdosta-based runner, Julinna Boehm (4th, 21:17) was the second female finisher. The next woman in, Amber Elam (5th, 21:53), also makes her home in Valdosta.


October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the Get-A-Mammy 5K benefits the non-profit Get-A-Mammy, inc., which provides and administer funds for free mammograms to those who need financial assistance in obtaining a mammogram--i.e., a "mammy."
