# 877 apparently didn't get her or his tag pulled.  Tag # 996 was blank.

Thanks to all who ran and to the donors who made it possible for 6 young runners to run without charge.

We didn’t have enough bib numbers so six runners, Andrew Harrison, Laniel Muskett, Tina Valdez, Jim and Lee Ramirez and Heidi Garner ram without bibs but had identifying single-digit numbers written on their hands. This year’s winner of the Rio scholarship, Cody McCullah, pulled tags in the finish chute. A special thanks to Cody’s mother, who flawlessly recorded the number of each finisher, including our special six. Gary Franchi helped me get that process straight and helped in the finish cute as well. Except for initially missing second place female in the 30-39 age division, Tina Valdez, the improvised process worked well. Tina was a good sport about my error. Also, Mike Cernoia’s dad Larry ran the printing timer wonderfully well.

There were 53 official finishers in the run and walk, about average for the history of the run if you don’t count 2006 with it’s shockingly tiny 16 total finishers. The highest was 2001 with 65.

Sixteen year-old Michael Cernoia from Pueblo West ran the 3rd fastest time in the 11 year history of the 5k, 18:50. Equally impressive was the 9th place finish of 9 year-old Kevin Hughes, especially considering the wind which must have gusted over 30 mph, forcing me inside my car to work on results.
