Myles Gibson plays beat the Devil in Dothan

Westgate ParkIn Dothan, Alabama an old race got a new name. After seventeen years as the Life Is A Beach 5K, the Dothan Runners rebranded their event as the Run Like The Devil 5K. The Dothan runners also moved the race date from August to September. It was still the same course, though, the 3.1-mile route on the Dykes Trail at Westgate Park. Many of the runners were also the same--Myles Gibson, for example. The Donalsonville, Georgia master runner won the race as the Life Is A Beach 5K in 2003, 2007, 2014, and 2015. Unfazed by the name change, Gibson returned to win again on Saturday morning, 15 September 2018, running 20:42. Master runner Kristi Holland, back after finishing second in the women's standings at the 2017 Life Is A Beach 5K, was the first overall female runner in the Run Like The Devil 5K, placing eighth overall in 26:26.


Dale Thomas finished second overall for the second year in a row, this time running 21:33. Master runner Jay Wrenn was third overall in 23:22.


Mariah Self was the second woman finisher and twelfth overall in 28:54. Katie Barrentine took third in the women's standings and sixteenth overall in 31:23.


32 athletes finished the 2018 Run Like The Devil 5K Trail Race.
