The 22nd year of the Race Beneath the Sun brought energetic participants to Fairhaven Park on Saturday, June 8th. The sun was a little shy that day, but the temperature was pleasant and we escaped the rain.
There were 17 enthusiastic kids in the ½ mile run ranging from age 2 to 9 years old. It is always such fun to see their young and happy faces taking part in this event. Kudos to all the supportive parents as well.
There were 118 finishers in the 5 mile run. David Larpenteur smoked the course and finished as overall winner and first male in a time of 28:06. It was a tight race for the lead women with Shelby Traeger coming in first in a time of 35:16.
We’d like to thank all the volunteers that helped out. They truly make this club a success. We’d also like to thank Fairhaven Runners, Great Harvest Bread, Belcher/Swanson Law Firm and Mallard Ice Cream for their generous donations.
