Stranded on I68: WVOutside has a little difficulty getting a reporter to the Claymont Ramble 5K

Adverse weather in the Cumberland area ( a snow storm on Saturday morning) kept WVOutside from making it to the Claymont Ramble 5K. However, race director Rick Kerby (Email) sent us these notes on the morning's run.

Turnout may have been low due to the cold, rainy conditions - in fact, the only time it rained all day was during the race - but we're still looking forward to next year.

The course is a hit among participants as it winds through the historic Claymont mansion grounds and into the adjacent woods. The course is part pavement and part trail which makes it more interesting than running on all hard surface. After the race, runners lucky enough to have their names pulled out of a hat got to pick from an assortment of random prizes including a 4-pack of toilet paper, a kite, and a hand-held back scrubber.

Local high school freshman phenom Bobby Lockhart won the 5K. Ted Poulos made the trip from the Washington, DC area to run in the rain and add another race to his log book - Ted annually runs in well over a hundred races, usually doubling or tripling up on weekends. Vic Ware traveled all the way from Charleston, WV to run so he could accomplish his goal of running a race in every West Virginia county - In fact, I think our county of Jefferson was one of only two he had left towards that goal. On the woman's side, Sandy Adams placed first in 22:35. Sandy, who competes in the 45-49 age group is getting ready to compete once again in the Boston Marathon in April.

This race was the 8th and last in the 1998-99 SVRC Winter Series and the top five male and female finishers in the point standings will receive awards at the annual Shenandoah Valley Runners Club banquet on March 21.
