Green and Green pour on some flour power at Bun Run

Bun RunOn Saturday morning, 23 July 2016, 63 athletes left the Gornto Road YMCA in Valdosta, Georgia, ran a 3.1-mile circuit of Wood Valley, and returned. The first one back was Jackson Green, winning Valdosta First Presbyterian Church's seventh annual Break Bread Bun Run 5K. Green, a runner on the Valdosta State University cross country team, finished the course in 18:58. It was Jackson Green's first Bun Run, but it was the fifth in the last five years for Valdosta master runner Debbie Green. It was also her fastest Bun Run yet, as she went 23:10 to win the women's title and place ninth overall.


It was a close race up front with Jackson Green edging Ryan Kelly 18:58 to 19:04 for the win. Kelly, the Valdosta High cross country coach, had won the Bun Run twice previously, in 2013 and 2014. A little further back, Valdosta's Dan Butzin was third in 19:13. Valdosta athlete David Jones was fourth in 19:33 and Nick Rosatti of Hahira took fifth in 19:39. John Bolmer of Nashville, Georgia was the first master runner in the race and eighth overall in 22:58.


Behind women's champ Debbie Green, master runner Elisabeth Diamond of Bell, Florida was the women's runner-up, finishing tenth overall in 24:08. Kelly Davis of Valdosta was third in the women's standings and thirteenth overall in 24:56.
