FIRECRACKER 5K -- YOKOTA AIR BASE (posted July 3rd)

Jayna Gray, the Lake area's most prolific racer so far in 2015, will likely win the distinction of having raced farther from home than any other Lake-area runner this year. On July 2nd, Jayna ran the Firecracker 5K color run with 250 other participants on the U.S. Air Force's Yokota Air Base in Japan while on a visit to see her sister Jeena, brother-in-law (who's stationed on the base), and nephews.

The air base is 6,343 miles from the Lake of the Ozarks. April Leonard looked like a shoe-in to win the most-distant-race distinction this year for running the Berlin Marathon on September 27th, but Berlin is a mere 4,765 miles from the Lake.

WEEKEND EVENTS FOR JULY 4-5

Independence Day is a popular day for races, and has more races than any holiday other than the undisputed leader--Thanksgiving Day.  You'll find at least one race in just about every city of size in the state.   (Springfield, for some unknown reason, is an exception.)

In the Lake area, Eldon's Independence Day 5K starts at 7:30 a.m. (registration opens at 7:00 a.m.) on Saturday at the Aquatic Center/Air Park.  This is always a fun event owing to the participants' holiday mood.  In addition, it usually attracts quite a few (and often fast) vacationing runners from outside the Lake area.  For example, last year's male and female winners, Greg Linhart (who also won in 2013) and Danielle Mohrmann, were from Kansas City and St. Louis, respectively.  (Scroll further down this column to "Upcoming Events" to find more information about the event.)

SUMMER ROUNDUP TRIATHLON (posted June 28th)

Congratulations to Jim McDermott for winning the men's 60-64 age group (over two other competitors) in the Olympic-distance race at the Summer Roundup Triathlon in Jasper, Missouri on Sunday (June 28th).  Jim completed the 1500-meter swim, 40K bike and 10K run in 2:45:25.  Here are his splits:

Swim:        42:16  (2:49 per 100 meters)
T-1:             2:29
Bike:       1:07:54  (22.0 miles per hour)
T-2:             0:48
Run:          51:56  (8:23 per mile)
Finish:    2:45:25

His 22.0 mph average on the bike was really impressive, and looks to be a personal record.  Only about 10 of the 83 competitors in the Olympic-distance race were faster--and most of those were barely faster.  

Full results can be found here.

THE MACKLIND MILE (posted June 27th)

Our fastest local female runner, Lizzy Handschy, competed against the fastest runners in the state on Saturday at The Macklind Mile in St. Louis. The one-mile course on Macklind Avenue is (almost) as straight as an arrow, and features a 73-foot elevation drop from start to finish.

Lizzy competed in the Elite race, which was limited to ten male and ten female runners.  She finished in a blistering 5:21 but, amazingly, that still placed her dead last among the Elite field.  To show the level of competiton in that race, the men's winner finished in 4:06, and the women's winner in 4:40.

Full results can be found here.

FRESH IDEAS QUARTERMAX & OCTOMAX TRIATHLONS (posted June 27th)

Congratulations to Amy Harrell for finishing the QuarterMax Triathlon at Innsbrook, Missouri on Saturday (June 27th).   Amy finished the 0.6-mile swim, 28-mile bike and 10K run in 3:39:23 (knocking nearly 18 minutes off of last year's 3:57:18), and placed sixth (of seven) in the women's 25-29 age group.  Here are Amy's splits:

Swim:        22:35  (2:21 per 100 yards)
T-1:             4:47
Bike:       1:48:55  (13.8 mph)
T-2:             3:53
Run:       1:19:16  (12:48/mile)
Finish:    3:39:23

Full race results can be found here.

There was a combined total of 411 finishers of the QuarterMax & OctoMax Triathlons and duathlon.   That was down from 518 last year, when the HalfMax Triathlon was also offered.  (HalfMax has been moved to September this year.)

CHARLEVOIX MARATHON (posted June 27th)

State number 26 is in the bag for Todd Raney.  Todd finished the Charlevoix Marathon in Charlevoix, Michigan on Saturday (June 27th) in 4:10:54, placing 25th (of 38) in the 45-49 age group.  After a string of rough disappointing finishes over the last couple months, Todd regained his groove and made this his fourth-fastest finish for the twelve marathons completed so far this year.

Complete race results can be found here.

Todd has a two-month break before his next marathon, the ET Full Moon Marathon at Area 51 in Nevada. That race won't bring him closer to his 50-state goal, however, since he checked off Nevada in December 2012 by finishing Rock 'n' Roll Las Vegas--his very first marathon.

RISE 'N' SHINE FOR KYLEIGH HALF MARATHON & 5K (updated July 3rd)

The Rise 'n' Shine 5K is undergoing big changes this year with the addition of a half marathon, a new starting location, and a new purpose. 

The Rise 'n' Shine for Kyleigh Half Marathon & 5K is scheduled for Saturday, September 19th.  It will start at 9:00 a.m. at the Tri-County YMCA in Osage Beach, located on Airport Rd., just across the street from the Grand Glaize Airport.

The entry fees are $55 and $25 for the half marathon and 5K, respectively, for those who pre-register by September 1st.  After that date, the fees rise to $70 and $35. Race-day registration will be available, starting at 7:45 a.m.

The race is being held in memory of Kyleigh Phillips, who passed away on July 2nd after a long battle with neuroblastoma, a rare form of cancer that only strikes infants and young children.  Kyleigh was four years old at the time of her passing.
