Tessier and Hanlon fox the field in the Red Fox Trot 5K

Cole Tessier, champion of the 2010 Bradley's Fun Day 5K, picked up his first win of 2011 at the Red Fox Trot 5K on Saturday, 29 January 2011. Tessier outdueled Jeff Armstrong 19:13 to 19:15 for the title. The top master was Chiles High School principal T. Alan Cox, fourth overall in 19:58. Placing seventh overall, Laura Ashley Hanlon ran 20:48 for the women's title, coming in just ahead of runner-up and first woman master, Thomasville's Mary Anne Grayson (9th, 20:55) of Thomasville.


Starting from Roberts Elementary School, nearly two hundred runners in the Red Fox Trot 5K
set out on an out-and-back course through Dublin Downs that sounded like a tour of horse tracks, following first Pimlico Drive and Santa Anita Drive. By the end of the first kilometer a group of four runners were in front of the field--Cole Tessier, Jeff Armstrong, and Lincoln High runners Chris O'Kelley and Sam Cook. Cook, wearing a toy pig on his head, was the first to drop off the pace, leaving Tessier, Armstrong, and O'Kelley (wearing a hot dog plushie on his head) as the lead group at the halfway turnaround. The three headed back towards Roberts Elementary, leaving the rest of runners farther behind. Hot-Dog-headed O'Kelley stayed with the group till the final kilometer, when he finally dropped off the pace, leaving the race to Tessier and Armstrong. Over the final stretch Tessier broke loose, crossing the line a victor by two seconds.


Mary Anne Grayson led the women to the one kilometer mark, but then Laura Ashley Hanlon moved to the front. Hanlon continued to lead, but could never quite get away from Grayson. Through the halfway point and on into the late stages of the race, Grayson continued to stalk Hanlon. But even if Hanlon's lead never got large, it still continued to be a lead, and crossing the line with a lead is a win. Defending women's champion, Wakulla High distance runner Cora Atkinson, was the third woman in, placing 18th overall in 22:58.


The Red Fox Trot 5K and one-mile fun run is staged by Roberts Elementary School. Proceeds from the race benefit the American Cancer Society's Relay For Life. This was the second edition of the event, the first was held on 17 October 2009. The second race had originally been slated for autumn 2010, but was rescheduled for 29 January 2011. The delay doesn't seem to have hurt attendance; 199 runners finished the second Fox Trot 5K, up from the 148 who finished the first.

Bulecza and Gerbers respond well to competition at FRU 5K

 title=On Florida State University's Tallahassee campus, Matt Bulecza got away from a field of nearly 60, running 17:47 to win the second annual FSU First Responders Unit 5K on Saturday morning, 29 January 2011. Bulecza's time was just off Raley Beggs' 2010 event record of 17:40. Bulecza was followed across the finish line by Robert DeSanti (2nd, 18:12) and Drew Fulcher (3rd, 19:59). Volodymyr Zharkov, the top master in the race, placed fourth overall in 20:17. In a dramatic race for the women's title, Kellie Gerbers nipped top woman master Nancy Stedman right at the finish line, winning 21:54 to 21:55.


Bulecza moved to front early, leading the race by the end of the first kilometer. He only widened the gap after that, ultimately finishing over 100 meters ahead of runner-up DeSanti and half-a-kilometer ahead of Fulcher. Zharkov likewise led the masters early, already ahead of Dr. Mike LaBossiere during the first kilometer. Over the next four kilometers Zharkov up from seventh to fourth, picking off one by one runners who had pursued Bulecza a bit too optimistically early in the race.


One kilometer into the women's race, Kellie Gerbers had a slight lead on Nancy Stedman. The next kilometer, though included the climb up Gallows Hill, from Call Street to College Avenue on Copeland Street. Nancy Stedman moved ahead and built up a lead. With half a kilometer left Stedman seemed to far ahead to catch, but then Gerbers began a charge for the finish. Gerbers made up the ground on Stedman and the two crossed the finish line nearly in a dead heat, with Gerbers getting the decision. Paula O'Neill picked up a few places during the race to finish as the third woman and second woman master, 18th overall in 23:05.


The 2010 race had been preceded by a night of rain, but in spite of the drier weather this year's second annual First Responders 5K had slightly fewer runners than the inaugural race. Hopefully, for the third annual race in 2012, the event organization will do a better job of getting the word out. More people need to see that hill on Copeland!

Avenger and Smoot fittest of the 5K field at ABAC

"It's too cold!" shouted a runner at the post-race awards ceremony for the ABAC Fitness 5K on 22 January 2011.


He should try running at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in August.


Nevertheless, there was what southwest Georgia considers a chill in the air as over 100 athletes navigated the 5K course around the campus of Tifton's Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College. Valdosta's Masked Avenger won the race going away, triumphing over runner-up Todd Smoot 18:51 to 19:06. Valdosta's Smoot was the fastest master in the race, finishing over a minute ahead of the next master runner, Brian Austin-Hickey (5th, 20:21) of Tallahassee.


Four athletes still fought for the women's title going into the final kilometer, Alice Smoot, Dr. Gretchen Bielmyer, Jane Spetoskey, and Hannah Moorman. Douglas' Moorman was the first to lose contact, but 500 meters out Smoot and Bielmyer still shared the lead, with Spetoskey in close pursuit. Over the last few hundred yards Valdosta's Smoot broke away, going on to win in 22:07. Finishing 13th overall, Smoot was also the top woman master in the race. Bielmyer of Valdosta hung on to the women's runner-up spot, placing 14th overall in 22:15. Leesburg's Spetoskey (15th, 22:29) and Moorman (17th, 22:41) were the third and fourth among the women.


The second annual ABAC Fitness 5K was hosted by the ABAC Fitness and Health Club. Like another Tifton road race, the Run For Love 5K, the Fitness 5K is held on the ABAC campus. However, the course is different. While the Run For Love 5K is entirely paved, the Fitness 5K took the runners on a modified out-and-back course that included blacktop, dirt, and cobble surfaces, as well as more than a few hills.
