Pruett paces Tok Trotters in Baghdad

Melinda Pruett, former Tokite, paced a contingent of six Tok Trotters in the first ever Baghdad division of the Tok Trot. Melinda, now in the U.S. Army, led five other trotters at Camp Victory in Baghdad, Iraq.

Meanwhile, back in Tok, 40 runners and approximately 60 walkers and bikers completed the 25th annual Tok Trot under clear skies and brisk temperatures. For the first time in several years two runners, both from Fairbanks (UAF), ran very fast times for the Trot. Weston Forsblad won in the time of 36:06 and fellow training partner, Chris Eversman was just four seconds behind.

For the tenth straight year, Jane Lansford won the women's division in a time of 43:43. Jane can be called "Mrs. Consistency" as all ten winning times are within two minutes of each other.

Runners from outside of Alaska who also ran the Trot in their own town: Pat Kling, Terry Pruett and Ingrid Forsmark (Oregon), Paul Milanowski, Jr. (Tennessee), Bob Lynes, and Mick and Ruth Ann Hoar (Washington), David Briar (Nevada) and Win Stiefel (Russia).

Inspirational runner awards this year go to 78 year old Jack Townshend (66:34),from Fairbanks, seven year old Chloe Helmer (74:32), from Tok, and the entire Baghdad Bunch.
