Capital City's Brannen captures Canadian 1500 title in Calgary

Nate BrannenMore than a few local athletes were out competing for national championships last weekend, the weekend of Saturday, 25 June 2011. Current Florida State University athletes as well as alumni were in Eugene, Oregon at the USATF National Championships, most notably Walter Dix, who took titles in the 100 and 200. The Godby High School boys' track team was also in Eugene, looking for a Nike Track Nationals team title. Capital City Runners co-owner Nate Brannen is one local runner who will be returning to town with laurels. Brannen won the men's 1,500-meter championship at Athletics Canada's Track and Field Championships at Calgary's Foothills Athletic Park on Saturday.


Calgary 2011 2012A dozen runners survived Friday's semi-final round, earning the right to run for the title on Saturday. "Cautious" is the most charitable description of the early pace; Scott Nicol of the University of Calgary Athletic Club found himself the leader-by-default as the runners coasted around the track. Canadian Olympian Brannen ran just off the pole, immediately behind the leaders. Taylor Milne was right behind Brannen. Four weeks earlier Milne had set the Canadian record for 2000 meters, running 5:01.57.


Coming up on 700 meters, Peter Corrigan decided to do something about the leisurely pace and surged into the lead. Reacting to the move, Milne abandoned his spot behind Brannen to chase Corrigan. Brannen swung out from the pole to follow Milne. Brannen was still stalking Milne going into the last lap when Milne moved into the lead. Geoff Martinson followed the two around the track. 150 meters out, Brannen attacked. Milne fought back, but on the homestretch Brannen inched ahead, beating Milne 3:50.33 to 3:50.40. Martinson trailed in third at 3:50.74.


The Calgary meet was also the selection trials for the Canadian teams going to the IAAF World Championships in Daegu, Korea (27 August-4 September 2011), and the Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico (14-30 October 2011).

Hough and Reichenbach grab Sizzler wins on St George

Jack RedwingUnited States Air Force Academy cadet Brandon Hough raced to a 17:06 5K at the 13th annual St George Island Summer Sizzler on Saturday evening, 25 June 2011. Panama City's Hough amassed a margin of victory of more than 200 meters over runner-up Jack Redwing of Tallahassee, who covered the course in 17:51. Third place went to Tallahassee's Joel Piotrowski, who won his second straight master runner title in two weeks, having also earned that honor at Monticello's Melon Run the previous Saturday. Stanley Linton of Crawfordville improved his performance nearly a minute and a half from the previous year's Sizzler, running 18:01, but didn't improve on his 2010 finish position, placing an identical fourth.
Nicole Reichenbach

In contrast to the men's race, Nicole Reichenbach and Samantha Fortunas battled for the women's title all the way to the finish line, where Reichenbach narrowly prevailed 22:44 to 22:48. Another Tallahassee runner, Angela Wable, took the third women's spot in 23:01. The fourth woman and top woman master was Kristen Corderman of Niceville, Florida, who turned in a 23:09.


218 athletes finished the 5K race, reportedly a record field for the 13th annual event. The St George Island Summer Sizzler is a benefit for the Franklin County Humane Society.

Robbins and Smoot outrun their elders at Jogging For James

Stephen RobbinsAt Valdosta's "Jogging For James" 5K on Saturday, 25 June 2011, fourteen-year-old Stephen Robbins of Cairo and fifteen-year-old Mary Alice Smoot of Valdosta won the overall male and overall female championships, leaving runners of more advanced years to compete for lesser honors such as age-group wins and master runner titles. Those master spots went to Valdosta's Todd Smoot (3rd, 18:13) for the men and April Scruggs (13th, 23:23) for the women.


In deference to the south Georgia summer, the race started at 7:30am. The route was the same on which Robbins and Valdosta's Masked Avenger had tangled a few weeks earlier in the Valdosta Memorial Day 5K, where they had finished behind Chris Rice. Soon after the start of the June 25 5K, Todd Smoot was setting the pace, with the Masked Avenger at his shoulder. Juan and Jose Castanon of Hahira, Georgia followed closely. Stephen Robbins initially trailed the four front-runners by a few steps, but soon made a bid for the lead. Smoot took Robbins' challenge, leaving the Avenger and the Castanons behind. But Robbins broke away from Smoot and went on to a 17:55 win. The Avenger reeled in Smoot to take second, 18:11 to 18:13, while Castanon hung on to finish a distant fourth in 19:24.


In the distaff division, Mary Alice Smoot only led the beginning, the middle, and the end of the race, finishing the race with over a 300-meter lead. Smoot placed 10th overall in 21:55, crossing the line nearly a minute and a half before female runner-up and top woman master April Scruggs.


Proceeds of the race benefited the James Eunice Charity Fund, used to support scholarships and needs in the community.

Dobson and Bennett turn the heat on the competition at the Hot Trot

Challen Hyman and Matt DobsonA week later and a hundred miles west from the 2011 Monticello-Jefferson County Watermelon Festival and its Melon Run 5K, Chipley, Florida hosted the Panhandle Watermelon Festival and the 33rd annual Hot Trot 5K on June 25. The 2011 watermelon racing circuit continues.


Jay's Matt Dobson added another Hot Trot 5K title to his collection, winning the Chipley race in 16:37. Dobson was also the fastest master runner in the race. Kristina Bennett of Dothan, Alabama won top woman honors, finishing 26th overall in 22:52. The first woman master was Robin Walters (45th, 25:18) of Panama City, Florida.


Matt DobsonThe race started and finished in front of the Washington-Holmes Technical Center on the west side of Chipley. Almost as soon as the starter called "Go!" Dobson and Challen Hyman went to the front of the field. After a kilometer of racing Hyman and Dobson were still sharing the lead. Ten seconds behind them Lance Jordan, Hyman's cross-country teammate at Panama City Arnold High, was in third. Dobson broke away mid-race, ultimately gaining a margin of nearly 200 meters on Hyman. Hyman ran 17:18 to hang on to the runner-up spot; Jordan took third in 18:10.


Kristina BennettKristina Bennett was not the early leader in the women's competition, and she was no better than fourth when she started the second kilometer of the race. But Bennett moved up through field, and at the end of five kilometers, when it counts, she was in first with a final time of 22:52. The women's runner-up, Laura Pounds of Dothan, was over 100 meters back in 23:25. Rachel Seller (43rd, 25:02) was the third woman in, just ahead of fourth woman and top woman master Robin Walters (45th, 25:18).


In hopes of making the "Hot Trot" a little less hot, the race started at 7:30am CT, half an hour earlier than the starting time in recent years. If numbers are any indication, the runners found the earlier hour agreeable; the field was larger than usual with 132 athletes finishing the 5K. The race started in 1979 as a 10K held in conjunction with Chipley's annual Panhandle Watermelon Festival.
