Matt Triick and Ashlee Golden tops at ABAC Fitness 5K

Once a regular on the roads of south Georgia, Matt Triick has since moved to Perry, Georgia. But on 26 January 2013 Triick ventured down from middle Georgia to Tifton, where he faced many of the athletes from his old stomping grounds in the fourth annual ABAC Fitness 5K. And a stomping is what Triick dealt to the south Georgia field, winning the 3.1-mile race around Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in 18:05. Ryan Kelly of Lake Park was runner-up in 18:22, while Lowndes High cross-country runner Tyler Thurman took third in 19:57.  For the second time in a row and the third time in four years, Tifton's Bret Wagenhorst was the fastest master runner in the field. This time around, Wagenhorst took top master honors by placing fourth overall in 20:03.


In the female competition, twelve-year-old Ashlee Golden upheld the honor of the region as well that of her hometown of Tifton by winning the women's division with a 22:46, finishing 19th overall. Audrey Williams, and undergraduate at Valdosta State University, was the second female finisher, placing 25th overall in 23:48. Valdosta's Martha Mazurkiewicz (27th, 24:38) was third in the women's division, adding another women's master title to the many she has already collected.


92 athletes finished the 2013 ABAC Fitness 5K.

Sean Kent shatters Hog Wild 15K record

Sean KentIn the 1976 Olympic marathon in Montreal, Frank Shorter ran 2:10:45, almost a minute and a half faster than the great Abebe Bikila's 1964 Olympic marathon record of 2:12:12. The performance didn't earn Shorter either the record or a gold medal, though, because Waldemar Cierpinski had already finished the race nearly a minute earlier, running 2:09:55.


These things happen in athletics.


Likewise, in the 2013 Hog Wild 15K in Dothan, Alabama, Donalsonville master runner Myles Gibson ran 58:26, just under Cedric Gillette's 2012 course record of 58:41. But Gibson didn't get either a win or a new record, because almost two minutes earlier Sean Kent had crossed the finish line in 56:34.


StartBack in November, a little over two months before the 26 January 2013 Hog Wild 15K, Sean Kent had run his last high school cross-country race, placing 30th at the Alabama State Meet for Dothan Northview High. Kent may be done with high school cross country, but at Hog Wild the Northview senior served notice that his distance-running career is far from over. Shortly after 2:00 PM, when more than 300 athletes on Museum Avenue started the 31st annual Hog Wild, Kent was leading the race in a big way. Some of the runners were doing a 5K rather than the 15K--surely anyone going that much faster than the rest of the field was in the shorter event? But at the turnaround for the 5K runners, Kent kept going. Kent reached the five kilometer mark of the race a minute ahead of Myles Gibson, who was holding down second place. On the flat stretches of the course as well as on the ferocious hills of Montezuma Avenue, Kent continued to pull away. Back on Museum Avenue Kent turned on a final sprint toward the finish line in front of the Depot on Main, dashing across in a new course record of 56:34. Myles Gibson finished runner-up in 58:26, the second-best Hog Wild time ever. Darrick Coriz, a member of the National Guard Marathon Team, placed third in 61:07.


Jeanne DavisEnterprise, Alabama's Jeanne Davis led the women's field at 5K, over a minute ahead of Kayla Fox of Dothan. Davis lengthened that lead to a 70:50 to 73:29 win over Fox. It was a much narrower margin in the master women's competition, with Dothan Carolyn Houston prevailing over Jill Wofsey of Alford, Florida 77:09 to 77:22.


135 runners finished the 2013 Hog Wild 15K.

Mike Musiowski placed second in 18:31, while Gilette was third in 18:42. Dothan's Lindsay Sport outran Ashlee Romani 22:45 to 23:11 for the women's 5K title.

Harris and Harris victorious at first Purple Heart 5K

Purple Heart 5KOn Saturday morning, 26 January 2013, race director Eric Dueno was delivering some final instructions to the field before the start of the inaugual Purple Heart 5K. "And now, Dr. Gomez will describe the course."


"The course is marked," said Juan Gomez. "I'm not sure how much good that will do, though."


It wasn't a statement that inspired confidence!


Caleb HarrisBut once the runners were led to the starting line, there was little problem in following the Purple Heart 5K course. The route on grass and trails around the perimeter of the Bainbridge College campus was well marked. Wrong turns were blocked off with ribbon or traffic cones. And if all else failed, you could just follow Caleb Harris. The Hutto Middle School sixth-grader spent nearly the entire race out front, winning the first-year event in 19:15.


The race started on the grass strip along College Road, from which the athletes headed north, starting a clockwise circuit of the campus. A group of three runners moved into the lead, with Caleb Harris setting the pace for Perry Waddell and Chip Nix. Back on the trails, though, Harris opened a gap, breaking contact by the end of the third kilometer. Over the final kilometer on the college's perimeter road, Harris only widened the margin, going on to win by over 200 meters. Behind Harris' 19:15, Perry Waddell was second in 20:09. John Bickley moved up to finish third in 21:06, and Joel Bass passed Chip Nix in the closing stages of the race to take fourth, 21:54 to 22:08.


Julie HarrisLike her son Caleb in the overall race, Bainbridge master runner Julie Harris led the women's field from the outset.
