Autumn Onion 5K  

Fallen Leaves Race #2

A little white in the grass and snow blowing in the air didn't seem to hamper the 56 runners who completed the Fallen Leaves 5K on Nov 14. The overall winner Jonnie Dunn from Charlotte ran 17:01 and first female, Stacey Spillane from Shelburne, was 5th overall in 19:04. 56 runners competed in Montpelier Saturday, while the large group of high school runners, who raced here last weekend, competed in New Englands in Thetford.

At first it seemed like we might have more volunteers than runners today, but we got a few to volunteer and run to keep it reasonable. Thank you to those who helped out: Ann, Brynn, and Brian Bushey, Chris Andresen, Pam Buck, Dave and Pam Erickson, John Martin, Gerry Carlson, Marsha Bancroft, Jamie Shanley, Greg Wight. Thank you to Eric Ryea for providing the huge batch of cookies which helped warm the runners post race.
