Fairbanks running star Kevin Brinegar picked a beautiful sunny Saturday to send a clear message to local runners that he intends to continue his domination of northern North American running events into the new millennium. Brinegar cruised to an easy 3 plus minute victory in the 28th Annual Snow run, demolishing a field of elite runners, in what outwardly appeared to be an effortless run. Brinegar stated he is utilizing his new running style, whereby he runs just as hard as he always has but does less of it in the same spot.
:
Paragraph One

Paragraph Two
The most exciting race within the race featured a start to finish, head to head, back and forth, duel between Jim Decur and Michelle Mitchell; with Decur edging out Mitchell for 4th place in an desperate, gut-wrenching, all-out, no quarter given sprint to the finish. Immediately therafter, Decur was given assistance and eventually revived, and Mitchell ran another 8 miles for a cool-down.
