“Yeah!” said the eager runners.
There was a 5K fun run/walk, a one mile run/walk or the challenging run to The Gym for a CrossFit workout. All competitors dashed from the chamber and crossed the finish line at Plaza Diane where free pancakes, sausage, eggs and juice were waiting for the athletes and anyone else who showed up.
All athletes young and old tackled the runs and CrossFit challenge with steely resolve despite a healthy helping of perspiration.
The men’s 5K first, second and third place winners were Harley Cushmen, Hunter Graves and John Wetzel, respectively.
The women’s 5K first, second and third places winners were Tawnya Nissen, Whitney Clark and Trista Ostrom, respectively.
CrossFit first, second and third place winners were Jacob Davis, Amy Kincheloe and Tiffany Thromberg, respectively.
The two young CrossFit winners were Stetson Davis, first and Cole Davis, second.
All runners received a free T-shirt. The CrossFit winner won a three month membership to The Gym and a CrossFit T-shirt. Top three runners in all races, ages 7 to 50, received The Gym water bottles and T-shirts.
“They rocked it,” Campbell said.
