Rabun and Hungerford run better at the Live Better Pink Run

October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. In Thomasville, Georgia Archbold Medical Center jumped the gun a little by holding their second annual Live Better Pink Run on Saturday morning, 30 September 2017. However, any month is appropriate for running and cancer heeds no calendar, so 351 athletes showed up to finish the 5K run. The fastest was Drew Rabun of Savannah, Georgia who won the 3.1-mile race in 19:47. Cammie Hungerford of Thomasville was the first woman in the race, placing eleventh overall in in 23:02


Jack Saussy edged Wyatt Whitfield for second place, 21:16 to 21:17. Both runners are on the cross-country team at Brookwood School, where Saussy is an eighth-grader and Whitfield is a senior. Christoper Darsey was the first master runner in the race, placing seventh overall in 22:20.


Donica Williams was second in the women's standings and fifteenth overall in 23:51. Margaret Wetherbee was the firs woman master and third female finisher, sixteenth overall in 24:00. Wetherbee was the women's champion of the race in 2016.


Gulf Winds Track Club of Tallahassee, Florida chip-timed the 2017 Live Better Pink Run.
