Record 208 take part in Strawberry Fest 5K and kid's 1-mile run
A record number of runners and walkers took part in this year's Strawberry Fest 5K and kid's 1-mile run at Kingston Park on Saturday, June 15. In all, 208 participants - 161 runners, 18 walkers and 29 kids - took part in the seventh-annual event. That number was up from the 175 who took part last year, setting the previous record.
In the race, new champions were crowned for a third-straight year.
Adam Peltprice was the top male finisher and Annalisa Low was the fastest female finisher in the race, held on a warm and sunny morning at Kingston Park.
Peltprice finished the 3.1-mile race in an impressive time of 18 minutes, topping second-place finisher Scott Burazin, who had a time of 18 minutes, 35 seconds, and last year's champion Jonathan McDonough, who ran the race in 18:47.
Low was the first female to cross the finish line, with a time of 21:31, beating out Liana Land, who had a time of 22:45 and Karisa Land, who ran the race in 23:01. Low took second in last year's race. Last year, McDonough was the top male finisher with a time of 19:13 and Renee Oxford was the top female finisher with a time of 21.35. Oxford didn't run in this year's 5K.
