The two athletes shared another starting line on Saturday evening, 11 August 2012 at the 14th annual St. George Island Sizzler 5K. It was a new date for the race; apparently the old June date hadn't been sizzling enough. Soon after the start of the race Linton and Molosky left the rest of the field far behind, eventually getting more than half a kilometer ahead of the next runner. In the end, though, it was Molosky who ran away from Linton, defeating the Wakulla High graduate 16:25 to 16:36. Third place went to the first master in the Sizzler, Garrett Orlowski of Kettering, Ohio. Orlowski's completed the 3.1-mile run on the island in 18:41.
Another athlete from the midwest--12-year-old Polina Bondarenko of River Forest, Illinois--was the first female finisher, coming in 21st overall in 21:58. For the second year in a row Tallahassee's Sam Fortunas was the second-place female. This time around she was 25th overall in 22:13. Nancy Stedman of Tallahassee, the women's champion at the 2010 Sizzler, was the third female finisher and the first female master in 2012, placing 29th overall in 22:29.
280 athletes finished the 14th annual race, a benefit for the Franklin County Humane Society.
