The traditional Thanksgiving Day PNC Bank 10K and 5K races in Wilmington, Del., brought out the best among several Creek Road Runners.
Leading the way in the 5K was CRR Clark Ridge (no photo available), who placed 9th overall out of 1,785 finishers and won the 35-39 age group in a lightning fast 17:24. Coming in 20th overall was CRR Bruce Weber, who won the 50-54s in a super 18:41, just north of 6 minutes per mile.
For the second time in less than a week, the two Dougs (Repetti and Ridge) won their respective age groups. CRR Doug Repetti (60-64) won in 22:56, and CRR Doug Ridge, father of Clark and CRR Claron Ridge (who also ran), posted a 24:34 on the day.
On the distaff side, it’s part of their family holiday tradition to run this race, and each year CRR Ann Jornlin seems to be on the podium. This year was no exception, as Ann took second in the 60-64s in 25:03.
In the 10K, CRR Tripp Shenton captured third place among the 55-59s in 50:17.
