WEEKEND EVENTS FOR MAY 30-31

We have two 5Ks making their debut in the Lake area this weekend, starting about an hour apart on Saturday morning.  The eRace Multiple Sclerosis 5K starts at 8:00 a.m. (registration will be open from 7:15 to 7:30 a.m.) at the Eldon Aquatic Center next to the Air Park. 

At 9:00 a.m., the inaugural Lake Race 5K begins at Beavers at the Dam, located near the west end of Bagnell Dam.  Registration will be open from 7:00 to 8:30 a.m. 

More information about both of these races can be found by scrolling to "Upcoming Events" further down this column.

For what's looking more and more like a curse, the weather forecast for Saturday morning--when nearly all of the races in the state are scheduled to be held--isn't looking very good.  Let's keep our fingers crossed.

MED CITY MARATHON (posted May 24th)

Todd Raney scratched Minnesota (MinneSOta for you Jesse Ventura fans) off his 50-state marathon list on Sunday after finishing the Med City Marathon in Rochester in 4:30:14.  That finish time placed Todd 40th (of 50) in the men's 40-49 age group. This was state number 24 for Todd.

Another finisher of the marathon was Kansas City resident Greg Burress.   Greg finished in 3:59:34, placing 26th in the 40-49 age group.  Greg (Facebook page) is a Marathon Maniac who has been on a racing tear this year, almost making Todd look like a slacker.

The marathon was only marginally affected by the rainy weather system that stretched from Minnesota all the way to south Texas. There was only light rain or mist during the race, and temperatures hovered around 60°.

Full results can be found here.
