Several Creek Road Runners came out to support the fight against ALS in memory of CRR Scott Mackler on Sunday. Six took home accolades.
Battling it out were CRR Ryan German and CRR Bill Rose, who each turned in a 19:55 on the clock. Rose won the 50-59 age group, while German placed 3rd among the 30-39s. German finished a whisker (six-tenths of a second) ahead of Rose; they took 6th and 7th overall, respectively, out of 266 finishers.
CRR Bob Opila captured a rare age-group victory, winning the 60-69s in 25:34. Opila was followed in that same age group by CRR Paul Amer, who took 2nd in 27:54. Good race selection, you guys!
Husband and wife CRR Rich Braun and CRR Mary Braun each took second place in the 50-59 age group with 25:08 and 28:16, respectively.
