ARR Open Mile

Although ozone levels were reportedly high, it was a clear and beautiful evening at Shadow Mountain High School for the 2017 ARR Open Mile on Tuesday, April 18.

The Grand Prix heat kicked off the event, with 16 runners all entered in this year’s Grand Prix points series. Timmy Soukup took the top spot with a 5:31.6, followed by Jim Gibson in 2nd at 5:43.6 and Katherine Nierva in  3rd at 5:44.9, the rest followed (see results).

Next were two full heats for the Open Mile – Hayden Cullins in 1st at 5:13.8, followed in 2nd by Michael Larios at 5:20.2, and Jason Hill in 3rd at 5:32.1, with the rest running a quality mile (see results).

The “Predict a Mile” was next. Erin Welsh took the top spot, with only a 2-second difference; Fred Levinus took 2nd with a 4-second difference, and Bill Scheel was in 3rd with a 5-second difference (see results).

The closing event was the 4×400 Mile Relay teams, run in near-darkness. Team 1 took the night at a blazing fast 4:31, thanks to runners Hayden Cullins, Timmy Soukup, Katherine Nierva and Jason Hill. Team 2 was second with a 6:01 featuring Brigette Schiess, Paula Murray, Janet Foote and Mike Williamson (see results).

Runners pushed through at least one more heat than was sensible, and there was plenty of pizza to go around. We had such a good time, we might not wait until next year to do it again. Stay tuned.

"I’ve always enjoyed the variety of races ARR sponsors and the laid back atmosphere at all events. Whether running or volunteering, ARR provides a great venue to get out enjoy running in Arizona."



Robert Lee

"I volunteer because I was a race director on a military post of a half marathon for 10 years. (Commodore Run) A race that had to go on. I could get no volunteers. I did everything. Rented the mailbox, paid for course certification, bananas and Gatorade out of my own pocket, even race timing. I loaded the trucks up and laid out the course by myself. I dedicated 40 great years to our sport back in the Hoosier state, as a runner, race director, club president and running journalist.

I appreciated, painfully, the value of a volunteer."
