Roberts and Baldwin run like the wind at Breeze By The Bay

The Breeze By The Bay 10K changed quite a bit in it it's third year. The course of the race changed, moving to the Port Saint Joe Trail. The date of the race changed, going from April to 12 March 2016. If anyone was troubled by those changes, though, it wasn't 14-year-old Jackson Roberts. Roberts won the third annual event, covering the 6.2 miles in 44:48. Karl Stuber was the fastest master runner in the race, placing second overall in 45:26. Leah Baldwin took the women's title with a 48:41, coming in fifth overall. Veronique La Salle was the top woman master, seventh overall in 52:04.
