Cookie Dash 5k

The 27th running of the Cookie Dash 5k (formerly called the Re-Creation Run) was Saturday, April 17, 2010. This is a well established race that always has a good turnout. This year was no exception. The race filled up and closed its registration earlier this week.

This is not a fast course by any definition. It has two cone turn-arounds and one cul-de-sac turn around. That's a lot of turning in a 5k! Also, this race is rolling and has a significant uphill start. It's a rare 5k course that has many runners running the 1st mile as their slowest.

The overall winner was Brandon York of Huntsville in 15:47. The female overall winner was Limestone County's own Whitney Hollingsworth of Elkmont in 21:43. The masters winner was David Purinton in 17:36. The female masters winner was Roberta Hauck of Madison in 22:02. The overall results, age group results, and awards are available at the HTC website.

  1. Bud Bowen, Elkmont, 20:57
  2. Whitney Hollingsworth, Elkmont, 21:43 (Overall winner!)
