Blazing! Potts and Taylor winners at Hot Trot

Once again the Hot Trot 5K in Chipley, Florida, lived up to its name. On the morning of the 36th annual race, 28 June 2014, it was about 80 °F with 80% relative humidity and hardly a cloud in sight. But Chipola College student Hunter Potts shrugged off the steamy conditions and won the race in 16:20. Victoria Taylor of Dothan, Alabama, a runner on the Chipola College cross-country team, won the women's title in 23:31.


Hunter Potts bolted away from the field as soon as the race started in front of Washington-Holmes Technical Center. A kilometer into the race Potts already had a 75-meter lead and was still moving away. Three runners led the pursuit of Potts at that point, including Myles Gibson of Donalsonville, Georgia. During the second kilometer Gibson dropped the other two athletes. He went on to place second overall, finishing as the first master runner in the race.


The Hot Trot 5K was the opening event of the 58th annual Panhandle Watermelon Festival.

Kelly and Jarnigan cash in at Dollars For Scholars

Bulldog MascotThree years ago I mentioned the proliferation of road races hosted by elementary schools in Valdosta, Georgia. Middle schools and high schools are also in that game, and several Valdosta State University organizations as well. Georgia Military College at Valdosta joined in on Saturday morning, 28 June 2014, hosting their inaugural Dollars For Scholars 5K.


Ryan Kelly of Lake Park, Georgia, won the first-year race in 18:50, finishing over 400 meters ahead of the next runner. Valdosta master runner Rick Mazurkiewicz placed second overall in 20:36. Casey Ellis took third in 20:48, and DeShon Taylor was fourth in 21:23.


Valdosta State University cross-country runner Danielle Jarnigan was the top woman in the race, placing eighth overall in 22:25. Alice Smoot of Valdosta was second in the women's standings and the first woman master, finishing ninth overall in 22:40.


60 athletes finished the race, which started and finished on the Georgia Military College Valdosta campus. Georgia Military College is a two-year school where students can earn an associates degree. Race proceeds from the Dollars For Scholars 5K went to the GMC Scholarship Fund. Timing and finish line services were provided by A Course/Line, LLC, of Valdosta.

Lin and Harris post Freedom 5K wins

Madison Harris and Reikan LinWith less than 500 meters left to run, Reikan Lin swung around Lane Williams to take the lead, then raced home to win the second annual Freedom Run 5K at Wakulla Springs on Saturday morning, 29 June 2014. Lin ran 19:23 to Lane's 19:28. Less than a minute later, Seminole-to-be Madison Harris crossed the finish line in 20:12, winning the women's title for a second year straight.


The run started at 8:30 AM on the paved roads in Wakulla Springs State Park, but before the runners had gone 400 meters they were across highway 61 and headed toward Cherokee Sink on a one-lane dirt road, a green tunnel through the forest. Lane Williams was out front on the way to the sink. At the halfway point of the race, near the sink itself, the runners reversed course to return to Wakulla Springs. Williams was nearly 100 meters ahead at the start of the return trip, with Reikan Lin in second and Tallahassee master runner Joel Piotrowski trailing in third. Williams was as far ahead as he would ever get, though. On the way back, Lin and Piotrowski started to close the gap. The race was on.


Lane Williams"In the woods he [Williams] looked back," Lin recalled about the race back from the sink. "He saw me and picked up the pace."


Williams was still in front coming out of the forest, but Lin was right behind him as they re-crossed highway 61. Back on pavement with less than half a kilometer to go, Lin passed Williams and started to open a gap. With the finish line approaching, Williams accelerated one more time, but Lin had gotten too far ahead. It was Lin for the win, 19:23 to 19:28. Piotrowski was the top master in the race, finishing third overall in 19:42.


Lane Williams and Reikan LinIt may have been a valedictory race for Lin, who is leaving the Tallahassee area to pursue graduate studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Lin may be giving up running in Florida, but he isn't giving up running. "I'm already starting to check out the running scene up there," he said.


Madison Harris, on the other hand, should be in the Tallahassee area for at least a few more years. When Harris won the first Freedom Run 5K in 2013, she had hardly ever run a 5K before. By the time she had finished running cross country for Wakulla High that fall, though, she had run quite a few 5K races. One of those was the state championship, where she placed ninth. Early in 2014, right before track season, Harris signed a National Letter of Intent to compete for Florida State University starting in fall 2014. That means that Harris will be in the area, but it also meant that Seminole Coach Karen Harvey had something to say about Harris' race at Wakulla.


Madison Harris"She wanted me to run it as a workout," explained Harris. "I was supposed to run 6:30 pace."


Coach Harvey should hope that all her athletes follow instruction so closely. To the nearest second, 6:30 per mile pace for a 5K is 20:12, the exact time that Harris ran. Harris followed Renee Cox at the front of the women's field for the first half of the race, then passed Cox on the way back from Cherokee Sink. After that the race belonged to Harris. Cox was the women's runner-up, finishing sixth overall in 21:07. Kayla Webbe edged out Cora Atkinson for third in the women's standings, both runners clocked in 22:32. Paula O'Neill was the first woman master, coming in 16th overall in 23:40.


82 athletes finished the race. The event was hosted by the Wakulla High Cross-Country Boosters as a fundraiser for the school's cross-country program.
