Godin and Hayden prosper on the longer trail at “Tails & Trails”

Eric Godin, Mary Jane HaydenSince the very first Tails And Trails in 2002 the event has included a 5K. The race had a different name and was in a different month than now, but there was a 5K. In 2006 the race director added a 10K to the program. This year, at the 14th annual Tails And Trails, a half-marathon joined the other races. It wasn't the only 13.1-mile race in Tallahassee. It wasn't even the first trail half-marathon in town. But it was the first Tails And Trails Half Marathon. And it ended with the long climb up from Lake Lafayette to the Tallahassee Animal Services Center that the Tails And Trails races are notorious for.


Eric Godin was the first to finish that climb in the inaugural half marathon, winning the Saturday morning race in 1:25:43. Godin finished over 600 meters ahead of the next finisher, Jonathan Manry of Capital City Runners. Manry's time was 1:28:21. Andy Roberts was the fastest master runner in the long race, placing sixth overall in 1:40:08.


Mary Jane Hayden won the women's title, coming in 13th overall in 1:49:34. April Bentley was the top woman master, finishing fourth in the women's standings and 21st overall in 1:56:07.


92 athletes finished the first Tails And Trails half-marathon.

Matt Cashin, Brittney Barnes
Unlike the brand-new half-marathon, the Tails And Trails 10K has some history behind it. Part of that history is that Leon High distance runner Matt Cashin won the race in 2014. Cashin repeated that performance in 2015. The sophomore won the 10K again, this time by more than 300 meters in 37:22. FAMU professor Geb Kiros was the top master in the 6.2-mile race, finishing second overall in 38:41. Placing 24th and 25th overall, Brittney Barnes edged Jillian Heddaeus for the women's crown, 46:04 to 46:15. Coming in 45th overall in 59:35, Katie Clark was the top woman master and eighth female finisher.


278 athletes finished the 10K at the 2015 Tails And Trails.
