De Jesus and McNally open 2016 with Resolution Run wins in Albany

Albany, Georgia's Riverfront Park on 1 January 2016The Flint River was in flood stage in Albany, Georgia, on 1 January 2016. Most of Riverfront Park was underwater, as was the Flint River Greenway Trail and a few city streets. But neither a little floodwater nor some seasonally cool weather could prevent 61 athletes from running the Resolution 5K that Friday morning. They were apparently determined to start the new year right.


Arnoldo De Jesus won the race by more than 250 meters, running the 3.1 miles in 19:03. Dennis Moore was the top master runner and overall runner-up with a 20:05. Lee County Middle School cross country runner Ben Phillips was third in 20:58, and Colquitt County Middle School harrier Case Gregory took fourth in 21:15.


Albany master runner Karen McNally was the top woman in the Resolution Run, placing ninth overall in 24:26. Ildico Babica was second in the women's standings, tenth overall in 24:52. Lee County Middle School cross country runner Emily Phillips was the third female finisher, twelfth overall in 24:54.
