South Valley Park 10K 2006
June 10, 2006
Some people thought it was adventure racing because they dodged rattlesnakes. That goes with the territory this time of year in Colorado. Runners started in South Valley and skipped over a ridge to Ken Caryl Metropolitan District. Thanks to Scott McFarlane runners stayed on dirt trails the whole time. He rode his bike out the night before and inserted the Columbine trail on the course instead of running along the side of an asphalt road.
A special thanks to Rob Fisher who had to make sure three groups were included on the insurance. Dependable volunteers at the finish line Joe Baird and Tom Alison gave the runners their times. Joe Sanchez rose early to help set up the course and again Scott M. rode his mountain bike to place water etc. My sisters, Cindy Olds and Kathy Baron were running around and riding bikes before 7:00am to help out. Ken Green was the man at the water table on the other side of the ridge. Diane Caterbury encouraged finishers. Jerry Murch took care of the water in the parking lot. At the top of the hill Connie Ahrnsbrak registered people and put them in the drawing. Jay Trujillo's nephew, Jimmy Perez ran errands. Julie Kimpel brought a van full of kids. Kids placed as follows: Two first place winners, Ivanna ?, and Katrina Kimpel, followed by Jimmy Perez, Courtney Kimpel, Kayla Kimpel, and Cody Kimpel.
Altogether it was a small competitive group. The results speak for themselves. The overalls are quite impressive. Check out the finishers in their 60's and 70's. Let's do it again next year.
