The 11:00 AM start




Another week, another 45 minutes of sunlight. Spring is officially here. We've crossed the threshold of 12 hours, sunrise to sunset, and are on our way up to 21+ hours ....... but, there's no sign of breakup yet. And the icy stretches of pavement along Gold Hill Road proved that to the 22 runners who tackled the 10 K course. Another 9 runners opted for the 5 K course, out to the Alaska Railroad crossing and back.

The tricky 10 K course conditions didn't slow Roger Dix down much as he continued his streak of first place finishes, with a time of 32:41; Greg Drum was second with 33:54 and Scott McCrea (taking valuable time away from his new job as Running Briefs Editor) edged out Kevin Brinegar for third with a time of 35:36. Michelle Mitchell also continues to dominate the winter races, with another first place finish at 39:05; Jane Lanford in second with 43:38 and Janet L. Roberts in third at 53:41. Tim Huber and Kathleen Edic won the 5 K race, with times of 19:37 and 21:42 respectively.
