Kelly and Green lead the charge at Valdosta's Memorial Day 5K

Memorial DayRyan Kelly ran 18:05 to finish first in a field of 87 athletes at Valdosta, Georgia's fifth annual Memorial Day 5K on 27 May 2013. It was just two days after Kelly's win in the Thank A Farmworker 5K, and his fourth road win since 11 May 2013. Behind Kelly, St John School distance runner Matthew Baun finished runner-up in 19:12. Lowndes High runner Chance Roe edged out Liam Bickerstaff for third, 19:47 to 19:51. Tom Phillips was the fastest master runner in the Memorial Day race, finishing fifth overall in 20:45.


Debbie Green of Valdosta, Georgia was the first female finisher as well as the first female master runner, coming in 18th overall in 23:21. In contrast to Kelly's big lead in the male competition, though, the next three women finished within half a minute of Green--'Dosta Dash 10K champion Melissa Roe (19th, 23:37), Valdosta master runner Angel Godwin (20th, 23:44), and Road Kill 5K winner Eryn Wilkey (21st, 23:51).


Unlike the previous year when tropical system Beryl was threatening the region, runners were greeted with clear skies and temperatures in the 70s. Improved weather no doubt helped lead to improved participation, as 87 runners finished this year's edition of the race.

Three years in the Memorial Day 5K winner's circle for Linton

Stanley LintonAt the seventh annual Bainbridge Memorial Day 5K Night Race on Monday, 27 May 2013, FSU NROTC midshipman Stanley Linton ran 15:46 to win the race for the third straight time. Behind him in the runner-up spot, Myles Gibson of Donalsonville, Georgia repeated as the top master, running 18:13. Tallahassee's Emily Jensenius took the women's title, edging out Bainbridge master runner Julie Harris 25:41 to 25:52.


2013 Bainbridge Memorial Day 5K Night RaceWhen two-time defending champion Stanley Linton arrived at the starting line of the 2013 Bainbridge Memorial Day 5K, there was one key difference from his championship runs in 2011 and 2012. This time around, Linton had already raced earlier in the day, outrunning a field of over 1100 runners to win Eglin Air Force Base's 28th annual Memorial Day Gate-to-Gate 4.4-Mile Run. Just twelve hours later he was back on the streets in Bainbridge, going for a double as well as a three-peat.


Dre Banks and Myles GibsonSoon after the start of the Bainbridge 5K, Linton was on track for both goals. Just a few hundred meters into the race he had a commanding lead. By the mile mark Linton had widened the gap to 200 meters. Behind him, Myles Gibson and Bainbridge High School distance runner Dre Banks battled for second place. Linton raced unchallenged to the finish line, crossing in 15:46. Gibson outfought Banks for second, 18:13 to 18:23.


Emily JenseniusThe women's competition echoed the close race in 2012 between Tiffany Roddenberry and Paula O'Neill for the Memorial Day 5K women's title. Coming around the final corner on the course Emily Jensenius was leading the women's field, but Julie Harris was just four seconds behind. Racing down the homestretch, Jensenius expanded her lead to take the first female spot 25:41 to 25:52, placing 24th overall. Harris, 25th overall, was both the women's runner up and the first woman master.


Erick Juarez62 athletes finished the seventh annual race, a fundraiser for Bainbridge High School cross country. The course lacks the guarantee of accuracy of USATF certification, but seems to be close to five kilometers. It's the same course that was used in the 2012 race, and a variation of the courses that were used in 2007-2011. The same streets will no doubt see runners again on 26 May 2014 in the eighth annual Bainbridge Memorial Day 5K Night Race.

Droze, Cox fastest air fighters at Fight For Air 5K

2013 Fight For Air 5K winnersIn order to defend his 2012 Fight For Air 5K title, Gary Droze had to follow the race from its old home in Centerville Conservation Community to a new course in Tallahassee's Southwood community. The change didn't hurt the Maclay School coach's performance at all; on 25 May 2013 Droze won the third annual Fight For Air 5K in 17:06, setting a new record for the event. Renee Cox raced to the women's title, finishing fifth overall in 19:37. Droze and Cox had shared the winner's circle just a week earlier at their previous race, the 2013 Steve Ellis Memorial 5K.


Gary Droze (1st, 17:06) presses the pace early, half a kilometer into the 3rd annual Fight For Air 5K.The 3.1-mile race started and finished from Southwood's town center, from where nearly 300 runners set out just after 8:15 AM. Gary Droze was soon in the lead with Tony Guillen right behind. Guillen had won the first Fight For Air 5K in 2011. The two master runners ran together early, but before the first mile was over, though, Droze had broken contact with Guillen. The rest of the race belonged to Droze; he beat Guillen back to the Town Center and the finish line by over a minute, 17:06 to 18:10. Two more master runners, Duane Evans and Michael LaBossiere, took the next two places in 19:16 and 19:36.


Renee CoxFifth place, though, belonged to the first woman finisher, Renee Cox. Half a kilometer into the race Cox was  leading the rest of the women's field. Almost twenty seconds back, Vicki Droze, Juanita Chalmers, Brittney Barnes, and Nancy Stedman were in a group trailing Cox. Cox continued to pull away, arriving at the Town Center finish line in fifth place with a 19:36 personal best. Vicki Droze raced to the women's runner up position, placing tenth in 20:35. Juanita Chalmers was the next woman in, finishing 14th in 21:22. Brittney Barnes and Nancy Stedman fought all the way to the final straightaway, where Barnes darted ahead to take the fourth woman's spot, 22:41 to 22:44. Barnes was 20th overall and Stedman 21st; Stedman was also the first master woman to finish.
