Over 300 In HealthBridge RoadRunners Huntley 5K
The 45 year-old Bland's 17:28.58 bested the 18:06.04 time of second-place finisher Lateef Oaunjobi of Woodstock, 20 years his junior. Just behind Oaunjobi was 14 year-old Algonquin runner Seth Conroy. He clocked an 18:36:74 time for the race. Crystal Lake runner Erin Wagner snagged first place among women runners but 14 year-old Algonquin runner Kate Michell was close behind in the number two spot for females, 20th overall. Over 300 runners signed up for Sunday's 5k.
Sunday's race results created a possible problem in the family of Dr. William Cox, an independent sports medicine specialist at Centegra. Daughter Kaitlyn, 12, beat brother, Matthew, 16, by more than 20 places in Sunday's race. "There'd already been some taunting before the race," said Cox.
