Sandra Griffin finishes first in the Fall Four

Quitman, Georgia Four Seasons Four Miler SeriesThe race in Quitman, Georgia on Saturday morning, 19 November 2016, was Sandra Griffin's first Four Seasons Four Mile. Being a newcomer was no handicap, though, as Griffin won the Fall Four Mile in 29:05--the fastest time yet by a woman in the Four Seasons series. Quitman master runner David Monds was the overall male winner in 29:18, his third men's title at a Four Seasons race. 25 athletes finished the four mile course.


It was the fourth Four Seasons race for David Monds, who has run every race in the series. That was also the case for Thomasville, Georgia's Gareth Pyle. Pyle was third overall in the Fall Four Mile, at 29:39 the second male finisher. Boston, Georgia master runner Wendy Owens was the women's runner-up and fourth overall in 31:38. The next two places went to two more master runners, with Warren Williford of Grove Town, Georgia fifth in 33:57 and Scott Routsong of Valdosta, Georgia sixth in 34:03. Lauren Will of Tallahassee, Florida took the third women's spot, placing seventh overall in 36:09. Will was the women's champ at the preceding race in the series, the Summer Four Mile.


A Course/Line, LLC, of Valdosta, Georgia timed the race and provided finish line services. The Four Seasons Four Mile series is scheduled to be back in 2017, starting with the Winter Four Mile on Saturday morning, 25 February 2017.
