2017 Nut Race 5k
Overall Finish List
February 18, 2017
Columbia Track Club
Fifty-five men, women, and children braved 53 F. temperatures, sunny skies, and 5 mph wind to race 3 miles around the University of Missouri Reactor loop. The record low was -10F in 1930 and most of the Nut Races over the years have been brutally cold, hence the name. In fact, we used to give a coconut to the most scantily dressed runner, but had to stop doing that due to a few potentially lethal cases of frostbite. In fact, one guy acquired what amounted to a second degree burn over most of the front of his naked torso.

Alas, global warming made its presence known at this year’s race and we might actually be forced to change the name, if not the concept of the race, should next year bring similar weather. Surely, nuts are yummier than sunblock, but we are not in control here.

Many thanks are offered to Anne Hessler, Tom Allen, and Nancy Taube for timing and recording results. The runners are listed in order of finish with time and 1st, 2nd, or 3rd place within age groups 12 & under, 13-15, 16-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, and 70+, males (M) and females (F). Times are minute:second,tenth (rounded up).

The overall female winner was Katie Hauser and Male winner was Ryan Hauser in 19:03.1 and 16:46.8 respectively.
