All ages have fun at Kirkwood run
September 5, 2012
Kirkwood held its 32nd annual 5K and 10K Adventure Trail Run on Saturday and all ages came out to show off some speed. The morning opened with a 1-mile and a half-mile fun run for kids.
The kids run was followed by the 5k, which was dominated by the younger runners taking the first five places. Patrick Duffy, 17, was first in 21:51, while Lindsey Adams, 14, was second overall in 22:35. Tony Moore, 40, was master’s winner in 23:49. The women’s master’s winner was Stephanie Welch, 43, in 25:37. The youngest competitor was 6-year-old Luca Hines in 30:05. The oldest was 70-year-old Robey Willis in 43:12.
Run At a Higher Level was the theme of the 10K, climbing from 7,800 feet to 8,500 feet in elevation. Ross McMahan, 42, was first in 44:45. He also ran a new course record in the master’s division, breaking his record of 45:07 set in 2010. Krista Meyers, 29, was the first woman in 58:11. Kim Taitano, 46, won the women’s master’s title in 1:07:48.
The races were presented by the Tahoe Mountain Milers Running Club, and proceeds went to the Kirkwood Volunteer Fire Department.
