Hundreds of runners, hundreds of miles fill a three-day weekend

Hundreds of runners, hundreds of miles fill a three-day weekend

Before the weekend gets too far into the rear-view mirror, road and trail – farm? – racing returned in high gear as summer fired its final blast in the Triad.

An unsual three-day weekend of events, among others, included the Moonlight Madness 5K in Winston-Salem, the PTI Run on the Runway 5K and 10K, the Doggettville 12-hour ultra and the Growler Gallop 5K and 10K.

Those four sites featured more than a combined 1,000 finishers. And among the performances worth noting:

High Point's Wil Zahorodny not only won the Moonlight Madness 5K on Friday night and the Growler Gallop 10K on Sunday afternoon, but he did the latter after finishing third earlier in that morning in the Canes 5K in Raleigh (16:33).

Jamestown's Brandon Hudgins averaged 5:21 per mile in winning the Growler Gallop 5K.

Greensboro's Kristen Bowles scored a fifth-place finish in the Moonlight Madness 5K on Friday night then, about 12 hours later, took fourth in the PTI Run on the Runway 5K to start her Saturday morning.

Greensboro's Sean Cowgill ran 63 miles and Thomasville's Chasity Ramsey logged 51 to win the Doggettville 12 titles, with Cowgill holding off ...

•  ... Colfax's Scott Goodwin, who ran 60. Goodwin's wife, Shannon, and her sister, Brooke Sumner, ran 44 miles each together.
