CRR Diane Kukich won the 60-69s in what was, for her anyway, a fairly comfortable 25:21 as the 38th runner to cross the line.

Not to be outdone, CRR Dan Weile (40-49) took an age-group 2nd place, finishing 10th overall in 21:40. And, of special note, CRR George Watson, represented UD’s College of Arts and Sciences well in his annual 5K appearance in 36:08.
