Leisey and Smith get wins at Get-A-Mammy 5K

Hahira athlete Kyle Leiser led a field of 87 athletes around the streets of Valdosta, Georgia, to win the fourth annual Get-A-Mammy 5K on Saturday morning, 27 September 2014. Finishing almost half a kilometer ahead of the next runner, Leisey's time for the 3.1-mile race was 19:47. Adam Gatzemeier of Valdosta finished runner-up in 21:50.


On the women's side, Valdosta's Elizabeth Smith didn't finish with as big a lead as Leisey, but she still won the women's title by a comfortable margin of over 100 meters, placing third overall in 22:04. Valdosta master runner Melanie Ellis was second in the women's standings, coming in fourth overall in 22:37.


Since 2010 the race has been an annual fundraiser for Get-A-Mammy, Inc., a non-profit whose programs include providing and administering funds for free mammograms to those who need financial assistance in obtaining a mammogram. 87 athletes finished the 2014 Get-A-Mammy 5K.
