Lamers and Mulick run fast for their Furry Friends

Furry Friend 5KThe Humane Society of Bay County, Florida, has scheduled their annual Furry Friend 5K earlier each year. The race started off as a Memorial Day weekend race in 2011, but moved to late April the next year. A mid-April event followed, and then an early April date. The fifth annual Furry Friend 5K was earlier still, 28 March 2015. There may be a method to this scheduling madness, though, because 162 athletes finished the 2015 race, more than in any of the four preceding years.


The fastest of those 162 was Casey Lamers. Lamers had finished runner-up in the 2014 Furry Friend 5K, but this year the race was his, as he covered the 3.1-miles through Panama City Beach's Frank Brown Park in 18:16. Not quite 100 meters back, Justin Williams was second in 18:37. Zack Bragdon finished third in 19:50. The top master in the race was David Griffin, who placed seventh overall in 22:33.


Danielle Mulick of Lynn Haven, Florida, took the women's title, finishing tenth overall in 23:14. Mowat Middle School cross-country runner Catherine MacLean was second in the women's standings, placing eleventh in 23:34. Right behind MacLean in twelfth overall at 23:45, Surfside Middle School distance runner Reagan Erbe was third in the women's division. Kristin Lamers was the first female master runner and fifth woman finisher, 21st overall in 26:07.

Gomez and Cauthen and the ants of Ashburn

Flat FlameIn South Georgia, the town of Ashburn holds a Fire Ant Festival 5K in March. Nearby Camilla, Georgia, hosts the Gnat Days Festival 5K each May. The region is just one event short of a nuisance insect triple crown series of races. That's something to keep in mind if you were considering celebrating Locust Days in July, or holding a Deer Fly Festival. I doubt that Enterprise, Alabama, is willing to loan its Boll Weevil Festival, but you could always ask.


The series would have to open with the Fire Ant Festival 5K, though, which is alway held on the fourth Saturday in March, except when it's run on the fifth Saturday in March. In 2015 March only had four Saturdays, so the race was on 28 March 2015. Omega, Georgia, master runner Lorenzo Gomez won the 3.1-mile run in 19:35. In the 2014 race, Leesburg master runner Bruce Austin had taken the runner-up spot and Ashburn's own Mauricio Cervantes had taken third. This year their places were reversed. Cervantes, 15, grabbed second in 20:53, nearly a minute and a half faster than he had run the year before. Austin ran 21:01 to take third.


Bonaire, Georgia, athlete Allison Cauthen had placed second in the women's standings in 2013 and again in 2014. In 2015 she ran her fastest Fire Ant Festival 5K time yet, a 23:27, and it was good enough to earn her the women's title. Carrollton, Georgia, master runner Leslie Miles was the second woman finisher, Miles placed tenth overall in 24:16. Janet Urbanski, 45, of Warner Robins, Georgia, took third in the women's standings, finishing eleventh overall in 24:39. The 2013 Fire Ant Festival 5K women's champion, Adrienne Worley, was fourth in the women's division this year, coming in 13th overall in 24:52.


52 athletes finished the 2015 Fire Ant Festival 5K. Results and timing were provided by RANREB Timing Services of Cordele, Georgia. Expect the next Fire Ant Festival 5K in Ashburn on Saturday morning, 26 March 2016. The ants aren't invited, but they always show up anyway.

Cox and Rosen conquer Springtime

Stephen CoxForty years. In five different decades and two different centuries, Gulf Winds Track Club's annual Springtime Road Race has been run forty times, changing courses, names, and even distances across the years. The very first of those forty runs was a four mile race. Ever since then, though, the featured distance was ten kilometers, as it was at the most recent Springtime on Saturday morning, 28 March 2015. Maclay School assistant cross-country coach Stephen Cox won that latest Springtime 10K, covering the 6.2 miles in 32:59. Sheryl Rosen, a Tallahassee lawyer, won the women's title, placing seventh overall in 37:30.


The 986 athletes who finished the Springtime 10K plus another 709 who completed the Springtime 5K started their run from in front of the Leon County Courthouse, heading north on Monroe Street. After a steep dash downhill on East Call Street, Chris Lake was leading the field as the runners chugged toward the mile mark on Franklin Boulevard. Lake was a three-time Springtime 10K champion, having won the race in 2010, 2011, and 2012. Stephen Cox only trailed Lake by a few seconds though, while Nate Kaiser and Jack Redwing dueled for third place a little farther back.

Chris Lake
Kaiser and Redwing faded from the picture as the runners climbed up into the hills of the Myers Park neighborhood, but Cox was starting to close on Lake. Before the race was halfway over Cox had pulled even with Lake; both runners reached 5K in 16:33. During the fourth mile Cox moved into the lead, opening a gap on Lake. It was never a huge margin, but Cox was out front to stay. He reached the finish line on Suwannee Street in 32:59, winning the race. A few seconds later, Lake crossed the line second in 33:10. After falling well behind Nate Kaiser in the middle of the race, Jack Redwing caught Kaiser just before the finish to take third, 34:07 to 34:20. Triathlete Charlie Johnson placed fifth in 34:20. Maclay School cross-country coach Gary Droze was the fastest master runner in the race, coming in sixth overall in 35:53.


"So how many of these have you won?" I asked Sheryl Rosen, the women's champion.


Sheryl Rosen"This sounds terrible, but I really don't know," apologized Rosen.


As it turns out, Rosen had won the Springtime 10K once before in 2010. Her confusion is understandable, though, because Rosen wins a lot of races. Rosen has won the women's division in every race she's entered in 2015 with the sole exception of the Gate River Run 15K in Jacksonville, Florida--the USATF national championship at that distance. In the Springtime 10K, Rosen led the women's field nearly from wire to wire, winning by over 200 meters in 37:30. Lauren Poulos was the women's runner-up, finishing 12th overall in 38:19. Katie Sherron was third in the women's standings, coming in 18th overall in 39:40. Stephanie Liles-Weyant was the fourth female finisher and first woman master, 26th overall in 40:32.

A glowing performance for Rosatti and Pezent in Adel

blue and green glow sticksIt's not that you don't expect to see prep athletes racing on a Friday evening in the spring, but you do expect to see them competing on the track. Nevertheless, Cook High junior Nick Rosatti was racing on the streets of Adel, Georgia, on Friday evening, 27 March 2015, where he won the inaugural Glow For Alpha Rho 5K. Rosatti finished the first-year race nearly half a kilometer ahead of the next athlete, posting 18:58 for the 3.1-mile run. Cook Middle School cross-country runner Cody Pezent, 14, was also absent from the track that evening, taking second in 20:47. Norman Park, Georgia, schoolboy Case Gregory took third in 22:29.


Adel's Angela Pezent was the first woman in the race as well as the fastest master runner, placing eighth overall in 26:45. The top male master runner in the race was Brad Holt of Adel; Holt was ninth overall in 27:31.


87 athletes finished the Glow For Alpha Row 5K, with another 27 completing an 800-meter fun run. The race was hosted by the Alpha Rho Chapter of Alpha Delta Kappa. Proceeds went to a scholarship fund for a 2015 graduate of Cook High School in Adel. Timing and finish line services were provided by A Course/Line, LLC, of Valdosta, Georgia.

Calhoun and Pennymon take Americus' Shamrock Jog & Jam 5K

In 2015, Daylight Saving Time in the United States started on March 8, making sunset an hour later on the clock and giving the nation an extra hour of sunlight in the evening. Two weeks later, Americus, Georgia, took advantage of that extra hour by holding the fifth annual Shamrock Jog & Jam 5K at 7:30 on Saturday evening, 21 March 2015.


For the third year in a row, Wright Calhoun won the 3.1-mile race. This time around the Southland Academy junior posted a winning time of 17:06, just one second off the event record that he had set the previous year. Albany, Georgia, athlete Arnoldo DeJesus finished second in 18:52. Another Albany runner, Kurt Anthony, took the top master spot in the race, placing third overall in 20:33.


Americus master runner Charlene Pennymon edged Keri Bunting for the women's title, 22:54 to 22:56.  Pennymon and Bunting were eleventh and twelfth overall. Southland Academy cross-country runner Ryleigh Bell, 13, was third in the women's standings, placing thirteenth overall in 23:05.


162 athletes finished the 2015 Shamrock Jog & Jam 5K. Proceeds from the event benefit the Scott Law Foundation, which provides direct financial assistance to cancer patients in Sumter County, Georgia, and the surrounding counties.

There hasn't been a Tybee Marathon since 2008, seven years ago. It's always possible that the race will return from the dead, but the existence of the Savannah Rock and Roll Marathon makes in less likely that there will be another marathon in the Savannah, Georgia, area. The descendant of the Tybee Marathon, The Critz Tybee Run Fest, is a fine event, but it isn't a marathon.


So lest we forget, here are the winners of the Tybee Marathon and its ancestors, the Savannah Marathon and the March Of Dimes Marathon.

The race started as the March of Dimes Marathon in 1978 at Hunter Army Airfield.

The race became the Savannah Marathon in 1979.

Only a half marathon was held from 1988 to 1990.

Dr. Cedric Stratton moved the marathon to Tybee Island in 1994, where it became the Tybee Marathon.

Savannah Marathon courses have included GA84036WN, GA93001WN, GA01011WC, GA94004WC,
GA99001WC, GA01011WC, GA04005WC, and GA05002WC

Savannah Marathon
I've taken the liberty of labeling this as winners of the Savannah Marathon, because that's how I first came to know the race. I ran the race four times from 1979 to 1982, during the period when the Savannah Striders staged the race on the two-loop course around Hunter Army Air Field. It was still the Savannah Marathon in 1991 when I drove down from Walterboro, South Carolina, to run the half marathon through the Savannah suburbs. Opinions may differ, but in my mind it will always be the Savannah Marathon.
