Riley, from Raceland Ky., had an overall time of 18:48. Third place overall went to 16 year old Jax Downs from Raceland KY., with a time of 19:16. The overall female winner, for the second year in a row, was 18 year old Kara Coldiron from Lynn Ky. with a time of 20:29. Overall female 2nd place went to Amanda McMillian from Huntington WV., with a time of 22:16. Overall 3rd place female was 13 year old Camryn Miller from Ironton OH., with a time of 22:28.
A special thanks to Richard Balmer, who has ran every Super Quik 5k at 84 years old this year! After the race all the age group awards were given out by Tim Maxwell. Afterwards everyone enjoyed ice cream, fruit and cold drinks. The talk of the event were the phenomenal goodie bags and moisture wicking shirts given out to all registrants. The goal of the race is to support our local high school seniors with scholarship help towards their chosen college degree. Fun was had by all and we hope to see you at next year’s race!
A big thank you to all the employee volunteers that came out! Without you we could not make the race happen!
