|2014 Tower Rock Run
The morning was damp and the air was crisp but the spirits were high for the 10th anniversary running of Tower Rock Run. With a record registration of 163, the day was sure to be an exciting event and there were no disappointments.
In the 10K event, the over all winner was 17 year old Karli Piaia of Rock Springs, Wyoming with a sizzling time of 37:05:08. Second place went to 52 year old Brenda Gray, also of Rock Springs, Wyoming with a spectacular time of 39:19:42. The top male runner in the 10K was 35 year old Tom Parker of Vernal, Utah with a great time of 40:07:18.
In the 5K event, the overall winner was 19 year old Jesse Gray of Rock Springs, Wyoming with a very very fast 15:34:62. Yes, Jesse is the son of the 2nd place winner in the 10K, Brenda Gray. Second place went to 17 year old Jackson Porter with a very nice 18:43:56
followed very closely by Brennan McCleary with a time of 18:45:63. Top female accolades go to 14 year old Hannah Behunin of Fort Bridger, Wyoming with a time of 19:47:97.
While the one mile is rarely acknowledged, with 18 participants and the ages of the 1st and 2nd place winners it is worthy of mention. Seven year old Ayden McCleary of South Jordan, Utah won the top honor with a time of 10:24:03. Second place was taken by Ayden's seven year old cousin Jared McCleary of West Valley City, Utah with a time of 11:48:08. We have some future 5K and 10K champions in the making with these two young men.
Many thanks to the sponsors and volunteers of this year's race. It wouldn't be possible for this event to be successful without the support of many. Be sure to support our sponsors by frequenting their businesses and be sure to thank them too so they will want to continue to support us in the future. We appreciate the Seniors of Manila for sponsoring the Pasta Bash on Friday night. It was a great warm up for our Saturday morning run. We appreciate the Forest Service, Sheriffs Department, Search and Rescue and EMT Ambulance for their presence and assistance during the race.
Tower Rock Run 2015 will be held on August 8, 2015. We hope to see you all there and that you will spread the word and maybe bring a friend or two along with you!
