Gibson and O'Neill were the rapids at this River Run

KiwanisIn 2016 the Bainbridge, Georgia Kiwanis River Run 10K got a new date. The race had been scheduled for January, but the Flint River, from which the race takes its name, was in flood stage and the course was under water. So the event moved to February. Although the river behaved itself in 2017, the race remained in February. And although there was a new course for the thirteenth annual 10K, the winner was the same as in 2016. Donalsonville, Georgia master runner Myles Gibson won the Kiwanis River Run 10K for the second year in a row on Saturday morning, 25 February 2017, running 39:04. Tallahassee, Florida master runner Paula O'Neill took the women's title, placing third overall in 48:10.


It was the third Kiwanis River Run 10K title for Gibson, who also won the event in 2013. In the 2017 race no one else had gone more than eight kilometers before Gibson finished the ten-kilometer run. Mark Tombrink took the runner-up spot in 47:59. Behind O'Neill, Michael Marchman edged Dale Nash for fourth, 49:29 to 49:35.


Run concurrently, the Kiwanis River Run 5K also got a new course for 2017. Tanner Norman, a junior on the Early County High cross-country team, inaugurated the new 3.1-mile course with a winning 18:42. Trevor Cleveland, a junior on the Lee County High cross-country team, was second in 19:15. Ramsay Miller outkicked Lance Wilson for third place in the 5K, 22:50 to 22:51. Also a junior on the Lee County High cross-country team, Miller was the first woman in the race.


41 athletes finished the 2017 Bainbridge Kiwanis River Run 10K. Another 35 completed the 5K.
