BERRYMAN 50-MILE & MARATHON TRAIL RUNS (posted May 20th)

Congratulations to Chris Boyle, Gary Braman and John Shelby, who on Saturday became the Lake area's newest ultramarathon finishers.   The trio completed the 50-mile race at the St. Louis Ultrarunners Group's Berryman 50-Mile & Marathon Trail Run in the Mark Twain National Forest near Steelville .

Their names don't appear in the results since they were running in a semi-official, volunteer capacity as course sweepers, making sure that the last runners were OK and accounted for.  The final 50-mile finisher crossed the line in 14:38:33, or shortly after 9:00 p.m. Saturday night.

Gary reports that the weather wasn't bad until a downpour hit with just two miles to go.

Click to view the complete results for the 50-mile and marathon.   There were 30 and 84 finishers of the two sold-out races, respectively.

JOPLIN MEMORIAL MARATHON, HALF MARATHON & 5K (posted May 20th)

This year's Joplin Memorial Marathon, Half Marathon & 5K commemorated the sixth anniversary of the devastating tornado that ripped through the heart of the city, killing 161 people.  Just over 1,600 runners participated in the event, including three from the Lake area. 

Jim McDermott ran and finished the marathon in 4:28:58, placing second (of seven) in the men's 60-64 age group. This was Jim's sixth consecutive appearance at the race.

Melissa Martinez of Crocker was the tenth overall female in the marathon--and won the women's 45-49 age group-- finishing in 4:05:56.

In the half marathon, Pete Leyva finished in 1:52:04 and took fifth place (of 26) in the 55-59 age group.

Complete results can be found here.

A famiiar name in the half marathon results was that of Gerald Holtmeyer of Bonnots Mill, who's always finished near the front at Bridge & Dam.  He was the 8th overall finisher and men's 55-59 age group winner at Joplin, crossing the line in 1:30:17.

Participation was down substantially this year, in all race distances.  There were 1,620 finishers in total this year, down 37% from 2016.

FARGO MARATHON (posted May 20th)

    

He must have had to stimulate some long-dormant memory cells in his head to do so, but Todd Raney proved that he still knows how to stop running after 3.1 miles.

On Friday night, Todd ran the 5K Hero Run in Fargo, North Dakota, finishing in 22:54 and placing sixth (of 111) in the men's 45-49 age group.

The 5K Hero Run is just one of a week-long series of sporting events in Fargo that culminated with the Fargo Marathon on Saturday.  Todd ran that, too, finishing in  3:47:32.  That placed him 48th (of 113) in the 45-49 age group, and makes North Dakota the 36th state in which he's finished a marathon in under four hours.

Complete results can be found here


Todd Raney brings home two medals this weekend.

TA-TA TROT 5K RUN/WALK (posted May 14th)

A little over 100 runners and walkers came out for the sixth annual Ta-Ta Trot 5K in Eldon on Saturday.  This year's race, which is a fund-raiser for the Avon 39 Walk to End Breast Cancer, was held in honor of Sandy Horton, a Tuscumbia resident who passed away in January following a battle with breast cancer.  


Those who came out to run or walk enjoyed
an absolutely perfect spring morning.

For the second time this year, as well as for only the second time in Lake-area history, a father-daughter duo took the overall men's and women's victories.  Nigher Alfaro won in 18:48, and Maria Alfaro in 25:22.  Both finished 25 seconds faster than their victories on this course at the St. Patrick's Day 5K in March.  It was also a 5K personal record for Nigher (and possibly for Maria, as well). 

This race had never had a repeat male or female overall winner until Nigher broke that string this year.  He won the race in 2013.


Overall Ta-Ta Trot winners were Maria Alfaro and
her dad, Nigher Alfaro. 

Many more photos from the race can be viewed here.

RUNNING WITH THE COWS HALF MARATHON & 5K (posted May 13th)



For the second year in a row, April Leonard opted for the Running with the Cows Half Marathon's virtual race. Smartphone and shoe woes, and her cows not greeting her at the finish line, made for a forgettable race for April, but she finished, and that's all that really matters.

There were 1,160 finishers of the half marathon, down 16% from last year and the third decline in three years.  Click for the half marathon and 5K results.

JAY DIX CHALLENGE TO CURE 5K/10K (posted May 13th)

Congratulations to Jim McDermott for taking 12th overall (of 115 finishers) and second (of nine) in the men's 60-64 age group at the Jay Dix Challenge to Cure 10K in Columbia on Saturday. Jim finished in 47:34--the fastest 10K run by a Lake-area male so far in 2017, breaking Dan Robertson's mark by 40 seconds.

This was Jim's third appearance at this race, following a long four-year absence. He finished the 2012 race in 39:58 and the 2011 race in 49:02.

Complete 2017 results can be found here.

This was the 15th year for this race, named in honor of Dr. Jay Dix, who passed away from cancer in 2002.  The race was started by his fellow members of the Columbia Multisport Club.  (It was a bit shocking to see in the race results the age groups that some of the runners who were there at the beginning are now competing in. Time sure flies.)

ELDON POLICE OFFICERS ASSOCIATION'S DOUGHNUT 5K RUN/WALK (posted April 22nd)

A newly-formed nonprofit organization, the Eldon Police Officers Association (Facebook page), will be holding their first annual Doughnut 5K Run/Walk (Facebook page) on Saturday, June 24th.   Proceeds from the event will benefit Camdenton-based Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) and the Association's "Shop with a Cop" program to help provide Christmas gifts for children of families in need.

The race will start at 7:30 a.m. at the City of Eldon's Public Safety Building on S. Oak Street (map).  Race-day registration will be available from 6:45 to 7:15 a.m.

The entry fee is $15 if you register by the pre-registration deadline of June 15th.  After that date, the entry fee rises to $25.  Only those who pre-register by June 15th will be guaranteed a t-shirt in their size on race day.

Click to download a flyer and registration form for more information. The registration form can be mailed in or dropped off at the Eldon Police Department.

So how will the doughnut run work?   Before the race, you'll be given a doughnut, and your goal is to reach the finish the race with a whole doughnut.  What's hard about that, you ask?  Well, along the course, off-duty police officers and volunteers will be attempting to steal your doughnut.  Why keep it away from them?  Because you're only going to get a medal if you finish with a whole doughnut.  (First-place runners in each age group will also receive plaques.)
