The annual Thanksgiving Day Run for MS races in Wilmington produced several notable mentions among the Creek Road Runners.
Two Creek Road Runners doubled up by taking age-group prizes in both the 10K and 5K.
CRR Bruce Weber continued to dominate the 60s age group locally by winning the 60-69s in both races, running a 40:35* in the 10K and a 20:46 in the 5K. He placed 13th overall out of 268 runners in the 10K and 31st out of 1,040 participants in the 5K.
CRR Doug Repetti, running his third and fourth races in less than a week, won the 70+ age group in the 10K in 56:56* and placed 2nd in the same age group in the 5K with a 27:58.
CRR Ann Jornlin, while not placing in the top three among women in the 70+ 5K division, did race walk to a 4th in 49:42 while pushing her grandson in a baby stroller. Her husband, Frank, and daughter, Carly, each won their respective age groups, though. Her son, Kevin, and son-in-law ran the race as well.
Another family of note created some buzz. CRR Martha Narvaez, her husband, Kevin, and three sons all ran. Her 13-year-old son, Lincoln, finished a remarkable 15th overall in the 10K in 41:09*, finishing 4th among his teen peers. Good running genes in this family too.
