No creeping or crawling for Hammond and Gibbs at the Fire Ant 5K

Flat FlameFinishing more than half a kilometer ahead of the next runner, Jared Hammond won Turner County's annual Fire Ant Festival 5K on Saturday morning, 29 March 2014, in Ashburn, Georgia. The Bonaire, Georgia, athlete ran the 3.1-mile race in 18:38. Albany, Georgia, master runner Bruce Austin was runner-up in 21:02. Ashburn schoolboy Mauricio Cervantes took third in 22:28, and Juan Carlos Tryo was fourth in 22:33.


Cordele's Amelia Gibbs won the women's title, coming in fifth overall in 23:21. Allison Cauthen of Bonaire, Georgia, finished second in the women's standing for the second year in a row; this year she was seventh overall in 24:33. The 2013 Fire Ant 5K women's champ, Adrienne Worley of Cordele, was 2014's third woman finisher, placing 11th overall in 25:45. Tifton's Gina Purvis was the first woman master. The fourth woman finisher, Purvis was 14th overall in 26:45.


Somehow this year's Fire Ant 5K was the fifth Saturday in March rather than the traditional fourth Saturday. I would depend on the 2015 race returning to the fourth Saturday, though. After all in 2015 there won't be a fifth Saturday in March. So look for Georgia's next race celebrating crawling, biting pests on 28 March 2015.

Sullivan and Gutierrez win at a soaked Springtime

Kevin SullivanOn March 20, Kevin Sullivan turned 40, joining the ranks of master runners. Just nine days later he owned the Springtime 10K record for masters, winning the 39th annual race in 32:03. It was Sullivan's second straight Springtime victory. Just over a minute and a half behind Sullivan, three-time Springtime champion Chris Lake took second in 33:37. Seeley Gutierrez captured the women's title, placing 13th overall in 38:09. The top woman master was Carrie Seiberlich, third woman and 36th overall in 41:16.


More than 700 athletes finished the 6.2-mile race, but more than a few stayed away when they woke up to rain and rumbling thunder the Saturday of the race. The last lightning flashed before dawn, though, and as racetime approached the rain slowed to an intermittent drizzle. The Springtime 10K started as scheduled from in front of the Leon County Courthouse at 8:10 AM.


Gulf Winds Track Club's 2014 Springtime Road RaceVince Molosky led the field early, reaching the mile mark out front in 5:04. That was a faster pace than he was going to run that morning, though. Just after the mile Molosky was overtaken by a group of four runners; Kevin Sullivan, Eric Larson, Stephen Cox, and Chris Lake. As the leaders turned onto Lafayette Street and started their climb into the Myers Park hills, Sullivan made a break.


"I was dead even with Kevin for a mile and a quarter," recalled Cox. "Then the rest of the race happened."


Chris LakeBy the two-mile mark Kevin Sullivan had opened a twelve-second gap. Chris Lake moved ahead of Chris Larson and Stephen Cox, but he was still losing ground to Sullivan. A little more than halfway through the race Lake had a solid grip on second, and Larson had passed Cox to stake a claim on third. Sullivan was so far ahead, though, that even Lake was only occasionally catching a glimpse of him on the road ahead.


In the end, that was the order they crossed the finish line. Kevin Sullivan of Capital City Runners first in 32:03, followed by Chris Lake in 33:37, Eric Larson third in 34:16, and Stephen Cox fourth in 34:20.
Seeley Gutierrez

Seeley Gutierrez led the Springtime 10K women's field from start to finish. Katie Sherron, however, had to run down master runner Carrie Seiberlich for the runner-up spot in the women's standings. Seiberlich was the second woman through two miles, and it was only on the third mile that Sherron was able to catch her. Gutierrez never had to look back, taking the women's title in 38:09. Sherron was the second woman finisher, 26th overall in 40:09. At 41:16, Seiberlich took third on the women's side.

There's no excuse not to run fast at Springtime

Stanley Linton and Kevin SullivanIt’s nearly impossible for a distance runner in Tallahassee to ignore that this Saturday, March 29, is the capital city’s annual Springtime 10K road race. At 8:10 that morning, nearly 2,000 athletes will set out on Monroe Street from in front of the Leon County Courthouse. Many will be doing the full 6.2 miles, but others will be running the Springtime 5K.


Edging out the Tallahassee Turkey Trot 10K by a couple of hundred runners, Springtime is the city’s largest 10K run. It probably wasn’t the first 10K in Tallahassee, but it’s the oldest one still around; this will be the race’s 39th year. Year after year Springtime is also Tallahassee’s fastest 10K, to the consternation of those who claim that it’s the toughest.


Stefanie SlekisWhen it comes to evidence for the toughest argument, the primary exhibit is always the hills. About a mile into the Springtime 10K, the course takes the runners down Franklin Boulevard and past Cascades Park. This is about as low as you can get in downtown Tallahassee without a snorkel. About a mile later the course has reached some of the highest ground in town, the heights around the Capital City Country Club. After that climb there’s still plenty of up-and-down to look forward to through Myers Park before the course finally dips down to the finish line on Suwannee Street, back by Cascades Park.


Chris LakeIn order to argue that the hills make the Springtime 10K particularly difficult, though, you have to ignore the fact that there is actually more downhill than uphill on the course. The courthouse, where the race starts, is on top of the same hill as the Capitol. The finish line of the Springtime 10K is more than 100 feet below the starting line. The drop is big enough that USA Track and Field wouldn’t recognize any performance on the Springtime 10K course as a national or world record. But Springtime is in good company in this regard. The Boston Marathon is also not record-eligible for the same reason.


Even if it’s not possible to set a world record in the Boston Marathon, it’s the only place you can set a Boston Marathon record, which might carry more prestige anyway. Likewise, Springtime is the only race where you can set the Springtime 10K record. The current Springtime record, Larry Greene’s 30:03, was set 30 years ago. It’s still the fastest 10K ever run on the Tallahassee roads. Last year’s fastest road 10K time in Tallahassee was Kevin Sullivan’s winning time at the 2013 Springtime 10K, 31:42. Eight of the ten fastest 10K times in town last year were run at Springtime. It’s a similar story on the women’s side. Stefanie Slekis’s 36:05 was the fastest 10K performance by a woman on the streets of Tallahassee in 2013; she ran it at Springtime. That was true for seven of the top ten women’s times last year.


If the course is tough, the runners seem to be tougher. I don’t know what the winning time will be at Springtime this year, but I know it won’t be slow.
