Justin Garrard flies to the Palace in 15:15, Ani Veltcheva in 18:05

Back on 7 April 2018, Justin Garrard and Chris Haynes matched up in Tallahassee, Florida's premier 10K, the Springtime Road Race. Haynes prevailed that day, running 32:31 to Garrard's runner-up time of 33:23. Two weeks later, on Saturday morning, 21 April 2018, Haynes and Garrard met again in Tallahassee's premier 5K, the 44th annual Palace Saloon Road Race. This time Garrard got the win over Haynes, 15:15 to 15:21.

"We just decided to switch places," joked Garrard.


Gainesville, Florida's Ani Veltcheva wasn't switching, trading, or sharing the Palace Saloon 5K women's title with anyone. Thirteen-year-old Veltcheva was the first woman in the race for the third year in a row, placing thirteenth overall in 18:05.

Garrard and Haynes were the fastest of more than 800 athletes who gathered at Messer Field for the annual run down Jackson Bluff Road to the Palace Saloon. After a performance of the national anthem by the Tallahassee Boys Choir, the race got underway right at 8:00 AM. Haynes took the lead early.


"After the first 400 meters I saw the pace was lagging and I just went," said Haynes.

Lead group early in the second kilometer

Garrard tucked in right behind Haynes. Andrew Smith and Michael Niezgoda were also in the lead group, but Niezgoda fell back after the first kilometer of the five kilometer race. Smith lasted through two kilometers.


"It was a two-man race after that," said Garrard.


"I couldn't get away from him," said Haynes. "I tried."

Chris Haynes

There is one significant climb during the race, peaking about 800 meters from the finish. Garrard made his stand on that uphill.


"I moved ahead at the hill, on the uphill," said Garrard. "I'm a good climber. At Springtime I would gain on Chris on the uphills, and he would move back ahead on the downhills. I knew I had to get away from him before the downhill."

Andrew Smith

Garrard did. From the finish line at the Palace Saloon, the first runner the spectators saw coming over the ridge was Garrard. As the athletes raced down the hill, Garrard maintained his lead over Haynes, perhaps even pulling away. At the bottom of the slope, Garrard dashed over the Budweiser Creek bridge and across the finish line, winning the race in 15:15. A few seconds later, Haynes finished second in 15:21.


"I've been second three years in a row," said Haynes. "The times keep getting faster, though."

Caleb Carmichael

Andrew Smith took third in 15:52. Caleb Carmichael, the University of West Florida cross-country coach, was fourth in 16:33. Charlie Johnson was fifth in 16:51. Tony Guillen was the first master runner in the race, placing twelfth overall in 18:03.


"It was my first time doing this race," said Garrard. "It was a fun time."

Ani Veltcheva

Like Garrard, Ani Veltcheva had been a winner in her first Palace Saloon 5K, running 18:13 to take the 2016 title. Veltcheva successfully defended that title in 2017 with a 17:58. In the 2018 race she led the women's field from start to finish, running 18:05.


"I haven't run a 5K for a long time," said Veltcheva. "I don't remember the last 5K I ran. I've been busy with track season. I've got to defend my title at the middle school state meet in May."

Katie Sherron

Veltcheva actually has two events where she'll be trying to repeat as state champion, the 1500 and the 3000. An eighth-grader, this will be Veltcheva's final season of middle school track. She'll soon be graduating Abraham Lincoln Middle School and moving on to Gainesville High, where she'll be running cross-country in the fall. Veltcheva is also a competitive swimmer.


"I swim at least five days a week," said Veltcheva. "I run every day, too, of course."

Ann Centner

Two kilometers into the race, Katie Sherron and Ann Centner were running together, 25 seconds behind Veltcheva. Sherron broke away from Centner after that, and on the way to the finish line she managed to cut Veltcheva's lead in half.


"I thought maybe she was coming back at two miles, but it was just wishful thinking," said Sherron.

Sheryl Rosen

Still, Sherron did keep the youngster in sight. The FSU economics professor finished as the women's runner-up and eighteenth overall in 18:17. Centner was the third woman and 24th overall in 18:28. Sheryl Rosen, the 2013 Palace Saloon 5K women's champ, was fourth in the women's standings and 28th overall in 18:45. 2015 women's winner Lauren Poulos was the fifth woman and 43rd overall in 19:30. Corinne Porcher was the top woman master and the tenth female finisher, 79th overall in 21:29.

A repeat win for Shearon and a record run for Nelson at the Coach Post 10K

Coach Post 10K & 5KEach April, the Coach Post Run takes places near Panama City Beach, Florida in Saint Andrews State Park. Obviously, the race isn't named after David Shearon. Nevertheless, the master runner from Panama City Beach manages to frequently put his name on it. Most recently, on Saturday morning, 14 April 2018, Shearon ran 40:13 in the fifth annual Coach Post 10K, winning the race for the third time in five years. Panama City, Florida master runner Jennifer Nelson won the women's title, setting a new course record for women of 43:02 and placing fourth overall.


Ivan De La Cruz, a sophomore on the Mosley High cross-country team, placed second in the 10K, running 40:38. It was a better than two-minute improvement on the 42:44 that he had run in the 2017 race, where De La Cruz also placed second. Just two days before this latest effort, De La Cruz had ended his high school track season with a 5:07.31/11:33.46 double in the 1600/3200 at the District 2 meet. Nicolas Waddell, a Mowat Middle School sixth-grader who has been spotted racing cross-country in a Rutherford High uniform, placed third in 42:43.


Port Saint Joe, Florida master runner Dana Black was second in the women's standings and fifth overall in 45:59. Another master runner, Amy Helms of Panama City Beach, was the third woman and tenth overall in 50:18.


69 athletes finished the 2018 Coach Post 10K.

Jones is a frosh-year runner on the Mosley High cross-country team. Like 10K runner-up De La Cruz, Jones finished up his high school track season at the District 2 meet two days before the Coach Post Run. Jones also doubled at that meet, running 5:04.52 in the 1600 and 2:09.06 in the 800. Andrew Bahati of Lynn Haven, Florida took second in the 5K, running 22:39.
