Killen Founders Day 5k

The Killen Founders Day 5k was Saturday, August 28, 2010 in Killen, AL.  This annual event usually draws a fast crowd.  Several North Alabama Cross Country teams use this race as a fitness test going into the beginning of the Cross Country season, so there are usually lots of younger finishers.  I've never attended this event, but the times indicate that it must have been a bit cooler there yesterday morning and that the course must be really fast!

The overall winner was Josh Whitehead of Madison in 15:28.  Since David Riddle has moved away, Josh has replaced him as the top North Alabama runner. I expect that he'll continue to improve.  The female winner was 13 year old Brandi Fennel of Florence in 23:33.  The masters winner was Lance Winders of Mansfield, TN, in 18:00.  The female masters winner was Sherea Burns of Florence in 25:04.

Overall Results and Age Group Results are available at the Shoals TRAC website.
