Everyone ends up chasing Fox and Reid at the Pilgrim Chase

PilgrimsOne thing that runners in Dothan, Alabama, have to be thankful for is the Larry and Ronna Dykes Trail in Westgate Park. The three-and-a-half mile loop is a perfect venue for races, cross-country meets, or a good workout. And each November on the Saturday morning after Thanksgiving, Dothan athletes can show how thankful they are for the trail by competing in the Pilgrim Chase 5K Trail Race in Westgate Park.


Dothan's Austin Fox won the 28 November 2015 edition of the race, finishing almost 400 meters ahead of the next runner. Fox, who also won the Pilgrim Chase in 2013, covered the 3.1-mile course in 17:28. Rob Oates of Brandon, Mississippi finished runner-up in 19:00. Cottondale High junior-year cross country runner Michael Black was third in 19:34.


Right behind Black was the women's winner, Ginna Reid. A schoolteacher in Buncombe County, North Carolina, Reid was fourth overall in 19:36, nearly 900 meters ahead of the next woman in the race.


Cottondale High frosh cross country runner Blayton See outkicked Dale Thomas of Taylor, Alabama, for fifth, 20:00 to 20:01. Thomas was the top master runner in the race.


Lindsey Fox of Nashville, Tennessee, slipped by Margaret Winkler 23:52 to 23:54 to take second in the women's standings, placing thirteenth overall. Winkler, from Blakely, Georgia, was fourteenth overall and the top woman master.


78 athletes finished the 2015 Pilgrim Chase 5K Trail Race. Wiregrass running returns to Westgate Park on Saturday morning, 26 December 2015, at the Last Gasp 5K Trail Race.

Whitehead and Cauthen reap victory at the Harvest Run

Leesburg, Georgia, Harvest RunThe Thanksgiving holiday in the United States is at least in part a harvest festival, so it was entirely appropriate to hold Leesburg, Georgia's second annual Harvest Run on Thanksgiving morning--Thursday, 26 November 2015. Darton State professor Patrick Whitehead won the Harvest Run 10K in 36:11, finishing the 6.2-mile race more than 600 meters ahead of the next runner. Allison Cauthen was the women's champ, placing tenth overall in 47:58. Westover Middle School eighth-grade cross country runner Henry Plowden won the 5K in 18:46. Another eighth grader, Southland Academy's Ryleigh Bell, took the women's title, finishing seventh overall in 22:09.


Behind Whitehead in the 10K, Dan Moffitt took second in 38:37. Dennis Moore was the fastest master runner, placing third overall in 41:12. On the women's side, Jennifer Romano was the top master runner and second female finisher, coming in twelfth overall in 48:14. Jody Hays was third in the women's standings, fifteenth overall in 50:41.


In the 5K, Southland Academy alum Alex Arnold was second to Plowden, running 19:32. Jordan Jones was third in the shorter race at 20:41. Ken Parker was the top master, coming in sixth overall in 21:26. The women's runner-up in the 5K was Ansley Cain, a junior on the Lee County High cross country team. Cain was fourteenth overall in 24:04. Westover High junior Janie Plowden was third in the women's standings, sixteenth overall in 24:25. The top woman master and fourth female finisher was Guna Gunawan, 22nd overall in 25:04.

Evan Beauchamp makes it three in a row at the Swine Time 5K

Michael Martinez, Evan BeauchampTallahassee master runner Michael Martinez is accustomed to scouting the field of local road races in the minutes before the event. He reported his findings to me just before the Swine Time 5K on Saturday morning, 28 November 2015, in Climax, Georgia.


"The Bainbridge High folks say that they've got a sub-16:00 guy who never ran cross country until this year," said Martinez. "He was an 800-meter runner."


He amended his report later. "It just got interesting. Myles Gibson is here."


The Bainbridge High runner, Poncherella Leonard, wasn't present at Swine Time, but Donalsonville, Georgia, master runner Myles Gibson certainly was. And so was two-time Swine Time winner Evan Beauchamp of the Atlanta Track Club Elite Team. It was Beauchamp who beat Martinez to the finish line, 17:50 to 17:53, to win his third straight Swine Time 5K title. Columbus State University distance runner Amber Braswell was the women's champ, placing seventh overall in 20:24. 97 athletes finished the 3.1-mile race.


Myles Gibson, Michael MartinezThe athletes were called to the starting line for instructions at 8:15, but their out-and-back journey over the course didn't start till 8:30. Evan Beauchamp, the defending champion, took the lead soon after the runners set out from the Swine Time Fairgrounds. Myles Gibson and Michael Martinez shared the second position back and forth till the second mile, when Martinez took it for himself. Meanwhile, Beauchamp had built up a 70-meter lead.


Twelve seconds behind Beauchamp with a mile to go, Martinez started to narrow the gap. Beauchamp was too far ahead, though, and made it home with the win in 17:50. Martinez was second in 17:53. Gibson took third in 18:24, while Bainbridge master runner Greg Waddell was fourth in 1933. Bleckley County High senior cross country runner Clay Blanton finished fifth in 19:41.


"It was fun," said Beauchamp. "Sorta."


"I'm coming off a pretty bad injury," said Beauchamp, referring to a torn tendon. "I was in a boot for four months and I've been running again for two months. I'm just happy to be running again."


Amber BraswellThe men's race had been close, but Amber Braswell didn't have to look over her shoulder in the women's competition. The Columbus State Cougar finished well over 400 meters ahead of her nearest competitor, winning the women's title in 20:24. Chelsey Beauchamp was the women's runner-up for the second year in a row, improving on her 2014 time by nearly two minutes to finish eleventh overall in 22:47. Mallie McRae was the third female finisher, fifteenth overall in 23:40. Donica Williams was fourth in the women's standings, 21st overall in 25:18. Anda Lucia Ariail was the top woman master and fifth female finisher, 22nd overall in 25:25.


"This is my second Swine Time Run," said Braswell. "I first ran it a few years back."


Braswell and three-time champion Evan Beauchamp aren't the only ones to return to Swine Time year after year. If you glance back at the results of past Swine Time races, you'll see many of the same names turning up repeatedly. The record, though, has to be held by Bainbridge Post-Searchlight sports editor Joe Crine. Crine may not have run the race even once, but he has been at every Swine Time since the festival was established in 1975. There's something about Climax and its porkers that keeps bringing people back to this corner of Southwest Georgia, at least for one Saturday each November--the Saturday of Swine Time.

5,645 enjoy Turkey Trot; Kaiser and Sherron enjoy it quickly

Nate Kaiser, Daniel BaurWhen a race is held annually for 40 years, like Gulf Winds Track Club's Tallahassee Turkey Trot, you start to see some of the same competitors show up year after year. Nate Kaiser, for instance, was running his seventh Turkey Trot on Thursday morning, 26 November 2015. The difference this time out was that Kaiser not only ran the 15K race faster than in all his previous Turkey Trot outings, but he also won the race for the first time. Kaiser had never placed lower than fifth, but this year he took the top spot in the 9.3-mile event, running 52:41.


But the Tallahassee Turkey Trot didn't grow into an event attracting nearly 6,000 participants without also picking up a few new runners. Katie Sherron, for instance, had never raced the Turkey Trot 15K before 2015. On Thanksgiving morning she toured the 9.3-mile course through Southwood in 57:41, finishing as the first woman and placing eighth overall.


Katie Sherron, Katie GormanTurkey Trot neophytes and Turkey Trot veterans, all started at 8:30 AM on Esplanade Way, the 15K runners as well as the entries in the 10K and 5K races. Trevor Sununu led the 15K field at the mile mark, but by the end of the second mile Nate Kaiser had taken over. Jose Diaz overtook the fading Sununu just before the fourth mile, moving into second, but Kaiser's lead proved insurmountable. A minute ahead halfway through the 15K, Kaiser finished the race two minutes ahead of the next runner in a winning 52:41. Diaz was second in 54:42. FSU assistant cross country coach Kevin Chin Shue worked his way up through the field to finish third in 56:07. Placing fourth overall, Jay Wallace edged Tony Guillen for the top master spot in the 15K, 57:23 to 57:25.


Katie Sherron was even more dominant in the women's competition. When Sherron crossed the line in 57:41, the second-place woman still had over a mile left to run. Sherron did have the leaders in the women's 10K to run with until the courses for the two races separated near the five-mile mark. After that, she ran faster than her counterparts in the 10K, ending up with a faster average pace than the women in the shorter race. Brittney Barnes was second in the women's standings in the 15K, placing 23rd overall in 64:39. Jillian Heddaeus was the third female finisher, 30th overall in 66:51. Stephanie Liles-Weyant was the first woman master and sixth woman overall, placing 40th in 70:15.

Daniel HamiltonIn the Tallahassee Turkey Trot 10K, Daniel Hamilton was never far ahead of Daniel Baur. Nevertheless, Hamilton was always ahead of Baur, and won the 6.2-mile race in 35:01. Baur settled for second in 35:24. Third place was a duel for the top master runner spot, with Gary Droze prevailing over Bryan Koon 35:40 to 3:18.


Throughout the 10K, Katie Gorman pulled steadily away from the rest of the women's field to win the women's title in 38:38, placing tenth overall in 38:40. Chiles High and West Florida alumna Kelley Bahn was second in the women's standings, coming in 17th overall in 40:08. Adriana Piekarewicz was the third woman finisher, 18th overall in 40:44.

Tallahassee Turkey Trot 5K leadersHalf a mile into the Tallahassee Turkey Trot 5K, Jake Littlehales, Joseph Garcia, Trevor Touchton, and Dewayne Riley were still trying to run with Ricardo Estremera. Before the mile mark all four had given that up as a bad idea. Estremera went on to win by nearly a minute in 14:53, the fastest Turkey Trot time since Matt Mizereck went 14:46 in 2010. Littlehales outkicked Touchton for second, 15:41 to 15:45, while Garcia was third in 16:01 and Riley fifth in 16:43. Michael Martinez was the fastest master runner in the 5K, placing eighth overall in 17:47.


Florida State assistant cross country coach Emma Reed was still going away from the rest of the women's field when she crossed the finish line in 18:33, taking the women's 5K title. Behind Reed, two high school runners were racing for the second women's spot--Johnson City, Tennessee, Science Hill High senior Lydia Lee and Tallahassee Maclay junior Caroline Willis. Lee put some ground on Willis in the final half mile of the race to take the women's runner-up spot in 19:18, placing 21st overall. Third in the women's standings, Willis was 23rd overall in 19:25.

Kelly repeats and Elam wins at the Valdosta Thanksgiving Day 5K

Ryan KellyThursday morning, 26 November 2015, marked the seventh year in a row that runners were in the streets of Valdosta, Georgia, on Thanksgiving morning, competing in the Valdosta Thanksgiving 5K. Valdosta High cross country coach Ryan Kelly was the fastest of those runners, winning the 3.1-mile race in 18:22 and successfully defending his 2014 Thanksgiving title. Valdosta's Amber Elam was the women's champion, finishing 20th overall in 22:13.


Two high school cross country runners battled for second, with Valdosta High sophomore Quin McGlamery beating out Science Hill High frosh Thomas Seeley 18:30 to 18:41. Just nineteen days earlier, McGlamery had been part of his team's 24th-place showing in Georgia's class 6A State Meet, while Seeley scored on Science Hill's fourth-place squad in the Tennessee class 3A State Meet. High school athletes grabbed seven of the top ten places in the race, but the top master runner in the Thanksgiving 5K took one of the three remaining spots--Valdosta's Rick Mazurkiewicz was ninth overall in 19:34. It was Mazurkiewicz's second year in a row as the fastest master runner in the race.


Fort White High sophomore Sheridan Plasencia was second in the women's standings, finishing 24th overall in 22:58. Plasencia came from just over the state line in Fort White, Florida, but the third female finisher traveled all the way from Tulsa, Oklahoma, to race--fourteen-year-old Sally Hubner placed 26th overall in 23:18. Martha Mazurkiewicz narrowly edged out Debbie Green for top woman master honors, 23:45 to 23:48. Mazurkiewicz was 33rd overall and sixth in the women's standings; Green was 34th overall and the seventh woman.


No one came close to John Seppala's 2009 record of 16:39 or Erin Miller's 2014 women's record of 18:28, but there was a record number of finishers in the race. 203 athletes finished the 2015 Valdosta Thanksgiving 5K, the first time since the race's inception that more than 200 crossed the finish line.
