Rhodes and Hernandez lead the pack at the Wolf Dash

In 2013 Chiles High School first hosted a 5K run at their Bradfordville, Florida campus to benefit the March of Dimes. March of Dimes races were held more or less annually after that, sometimes less than twelve months apart, sometimes more. Then, on Saturday morning, 3 February 2018, the Chiles High School Foundation staged a sixth March of Dimes 5K.


They called it the first annual Wolf Dash.


Well, it was the first of the races called the Wolf Dash.


First annual or sixth annual, Perry, Florida master runner Michael Rhodes edged Kurt Dietrich of Tallahassee, Florida for the win, 18:30 to 18:34. Owen Franklin, a seventh-grader on the Montford Middle School cross-country team, was third in 21:34.


Georgina Hernandez was the first woman in the race, placing twelfth overall in 26:05. Stacy Poage was the first woman master and second female finisher, fourteenth overall in 26:36. Renee Pharis edged nine-year-old Maddy Morris for the third spot in the women's standings, 28:11 to 28:14. Pharis and Morris finished nineteenth and twentieth overall.


57 athletes finished the 2018 Wolf Dash. Another 30 finished a one-mile fun run.
