Two Ohio Challenge Series races took place this morning, GOR at Walsh University and ADM at IBH Addiction Recovery Center in Akron.
Top Finisher at GOR (Women Only Event) was Hannah Ison in a time of 20:55.1. At ADM the men were led by Mark Dudek in a time of 19:46.2 and the women were led by Hope Murphy in a time of 24:11.2. Congratulations to nearly 1500 participants who took part in these two events!
I have missed a number of the last few local events as I have been traveling from Great Falls Montana, across western Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and just last weekend in Northern California at the Avenue of the Giants Marathon & Half Marathon assisting some of our other Enmotive Timers. It has been fun to visit other areas and other events, but races regardless of the location and runners regardless of where they are from are all pretty much just like those in Ohio!

Kyle Raynard topped the men in a time of 18:29.2 while Allie Reich led the women in a time of 22:53.8. Thanks to all who participated and supported the event in honor of 1st. Lt. Ashley White.
