2013 Runner's Choice 20k
Overall Finish List
January 12, 2013
Columbia Track Club
Team Earnest made its race director debut this year. The position was open at the CTC annual meeting in November and we jumped at the opportunity. Then we realized we'd be directing a race... that is long....in January… when it's cold…. We were fortunate, though, and the weather Gods decided to cooperate for our first year and the temps were in the low 40s at the start and the roads were free of snow and ice (which wouldn't be the case just 12 hours later when Columbia got hit with a small winter storm). Tim Langen was the first person across the finish line for the 10K in 37:04 and Laura Hillard was the first female in 41:56. They both won a nice Camelbak water bottle donated by Tryathletics with a little cash inside (a $5 bill). Josh Grotzinger was the first finisher in the 20K in 1:13 and Nancy Taube was the first female in 1:30:28. Both won a nice insulated Camelbak water bottle donated by Tryathletics with a $5 bill inside. We had 43 finishers in the 10K and 20 finishers in the 20K. A special thanks to Tony Taube, Jenny Clark and Paula Rawlings for helping us out at the finish line. And a special thanks to Joe Duncan, Tim Albers, Jason Hanft and Nancy Rezabek for keeping our runners safe on the course. Thanks to Tryathletics for donating the water bottles for our winners. Thank you to everyone that came out and ran.
--Kimberly and Brad Earnest, race directors
