GEORGETOWN — On a cold spring morning that saw snow flakes slowly drifting down from the sky, dozens of runners and walkers from all over the county made the trek to the Brown County Fairgrounds for the Run into 4-H 5K, held by the Brown County 4-H.
There were several divisions for runners of all ages and genders, but the overall winner was Ralph Jennings, who crossed the line with a time of 25:26 to win the male 50 runner division as well as the race as a whole.
Shortly behind Jennings came Caitlyn Wills, who posted a mark of 26:04 and won the female 13 and under division.
Luke Woodruff finished shortly after Wills, placing third overall, followed by Amy Copas. Woodruff’s effort earned him the title in the 12-year-old male runner division while Copas won the 25-year-old female division.
Charley Hoce placed fifth overall and second in the 50-year-old male runner division behind Jennings. Bob Lodwick crossed the line in third place in that same division and sixth overall.
Becca Fannin finished seventh overall for the race and her time of 30:20 was good for second place in the 25-year-old female runner division as well.
Heather Bayer placed eighth in the event, but won the 19-year-old femail runner division. Jaime Ogdon placed ninth, five seconds behind Bayer, good for third in the 25-year-old female runner division.
Larry Hollingsworth rounded out the top 10 with a time of 31:26, placing him fourth in the 50-year-old male runner division.
Walkers received awards as well. Julie Woodruff was the fastest overall walker, earning her a certificate to run in next year’s race. Sue Bayer was the second overall walker, first in the 35-year-old female division, while Mary Woolard finished second in that division, right behind Bayer.
Other awards were handed out as well. Colton Cox won the first-place award in the Kids’ Fun Dash. The “Fun Dash” was an event for children under eight years old and did not require registration.
Rick Haney’s dog Aggie won the “first dog” award for being the first dog to cross the finish line. Haney and Aggie finished the race in 11th place overall, first in the 35-year-old male runner division.
The Brown County chapter of the 4-H looks to empower youth to reach their full potential, working and learning in partnership with caring adults. For more information or to learn about potential future events, be sure to check out the group on Facebook.
