Mighty Medford 5K Results, 2018
January 14, 2018
On a brutally cold morning, 33 runners (though only 32 signed up and returned their finish card) braved the frigid conditions for the first 5k of the WRRC year. The Connelly family took the first and second spots with the younger Ethan bringing home the victory. Chris Van Sant brought home the title of first masters male while Erica McCann was the first female finisher and Tonna Arbaugh the first masters female finisher. The oldest finisher was the well-known Mr. Jim Bullock at 75 years young. The youngest finisher was 12 year old Nathan Michel, whose age matched the temperature around the start of the race! In taking over this race from Jill Krebs, I thought it was important to continue her tradition of prizes, however, which was pints of ice cream; which needed no extra precautions to keep it frozen on this day! A special thanks to the volunteers- Frank Shaeffer, Noah Griffin, and Maddie Arbaugh.
