Having way too much fun in the sun
The third Annual Samuel Mumley Memorial Classic races took place in St. Clairsville this past Saturday with over 300 runners and walkers converging to compete. The two races, the 5K and the 15K for those needing a tougher challenge, ran throughout the city and surrounding areas. Both races started at the top of a nice downhill where eventually they would finish the course after completing their loop through the streets.

In the 5K race Ed Tullius of Moundsville captured first overall in a time of 16:52. He said that the downhill finish was great because of the toughness the course provided. He also went on to talk about how good the competition was and how he was able to beat out the second place finisher Chris Perun (17:02). Perun took first place over Tullius on Thursday night at the Betty Zain run in Martins Ferry.

Off to the races for 5K or 15K
In the women's division Valerie Price was able to run away from the competition finishing in 20:39 a full minute ahead of second place finisher Angie Kemp (21:39).

In the walking division John Yoker maintained a 9:24 pace to finish first overall in a time of 29:08. Paula Curtin was first for the ladies, and fourth overall, with a time of 31:45.

In the 15K race Ben Bollock was able to maintain his lead throughout the race to finish in a time of 50:28. Coming in second place was Ricky Moore (52:34) the winner of last weeks Debbie Green Memorial Run. He said that he and Bollock were running evenly until the 5th mile when his body wasn't feeling completely right so he slowed his pace slightly.

A grimace or a smile?
In the women's division Julie Eisnaugle of Gahanna, Ohio captured first place over Amy Blateri of Dublin, Ohio. Eisnaugle and Blateri both agreed that the competition was very tough and that the course was pretty demanding with lots of hills. Eisnaugle crossed in a time of 1:10.06 compared to Blateri's time of 1:10.43.

A special thank you goes out to the St. Clairsville Sunrise Rotarians and all the volunteers who were able to put on such a great event and to Runner's High for doing a fine job with the results.
