Thanksgiving Day Classic 10-mile/5K/1-mile
There’s nothing like a race to help make room for extra pie, and the ARR Thanksgiving Classic was the perfect place to do it. With something for the whole family, the 10-mile, 5K and 1-mile fun runs were well attended again this year.
With a much warmer morning than last year (who remembers the ice-cold headwind of 2016?), we enjoyed a sunny morning with plenty of competition. The 10-miler kicked off right at 8 am, followed by the 1-mile fun run, then the popular 5K which was the highest attended. The race shirts were popular, and make a great addition to every runner’s winter-weather gear.
Top male finishers for the 10-mile race were Alvin Begay, Austin Lavin, and Aron Orar. Top female finishers were Katie Mcgee, Erin Lostracco, and Kayla Freeman. Top male finishers for the 5K were Brandon Kocmoud, Tyler Hodges, and Andrew Ciarfalia. Top female finishers were Jordan Linder, Dovi Planu, and Angela Poweziak (see all results). All the winners took home pies, along with the top three finishers for both races in every age group.
Big thanks go out to all of our volunteer groups – we enjoyed a top-notch event to kick off the holiday season. Don’t forget to take a break from the season’s madness and join us at the Festivus Run on December 17.
