The overall winner was Shane O'Neill of Huntsville, AL, with a time of 16:53. The overall female winner was 12 year old Rachel Stowe of Town Creek, AL, with a time of 23:18. The masters winner was Wayne Johnson of Tuscumbia, AL, with a time of 20:10. The female masters winner was Pam Berry of Hartselle, AL, with a time of 25:29.
It's both remarkable and unusual for a 12 year old to win a race! Her time of 23:18 would have been competitive at many races. That is an impressive performance, and there could be a very bright future in competitive running for Rachel.

It's good to see Mark's name back in race results. He is coming back from injury. He's been running around Athens in the afternoons and evenings. It's good to see that recovery is coming along for him.
