Twilight Series #4: FSK 6K Run, 2016

7 July 2016
Francis Scott Key High School
Union Bridge, MD

DuLaney, Arbaugh outlast competition, conditions

The heat and humidity were heavy, but were no match for 115 runners and the promise of post-race Popsicles. There are no flat sections on this out-and-back 6K starting and finishing at Francis Scott Key High School in Union Bridge. The return trip, in particular, provides a lot of uphill work.

The top men were off to a fast start. Eager to chase a course record, Arthur Leathers grew a significant lead over Brendan DuLaney and Karsten Brown. Unfortunately, he mistook the return-trip 2M mark as the turnaround instead of continuing to the 3K mark. He had already returned past Brendan and Karsten before they could figure out what had happened and call him back to complete the course. He ended up running 5.56K in 19:28. Arthur does have two more opportunities to win series events and clinch an overall series win. Brendan kept his focus and strength for the win as Karsten could never reel him in. Karsten held off Colin Russell, who completed the podium. Fourth and fifth were grabbed by young Chris Scalzi and veteran Tom Yinger, respectively.

Masters runner Tonna Arbaugh had a breakthrough race for the women. Not only did she finish ahead of frequent masters winner Tina McCubbin, she finished ahead of all the women for a win. Tonna went out hard, building a comfortable lead by the turnaround. About halfway back on the return trip, the difficult course and conditions had slowed her a little, but not enough for second-place Kaylee Ryan to catch up. Maggie Leathers was not much further back to complete the women's podium. Emily Russell and Valerie White added good scores in the overall standings as fourth and fifth, respectively.

Age-group winners not mentioned so far were Charlie Ferguson and Casey Jillson (15 & under), Steve Kerzel and Maria Carr (50-59), Malcolm Senior and Nancy Wills (60-69), Jim Bullock and Jeanette Novak (70-79), and Yvonne Aasen (80 & over). Of special note is Krystle Gabele, visiting from Fort Worth, Texas, and winning 30-39 at her alma mater. She's certain to run with us anytime she's visiting her parents in Taneytown.

Our volunteers who signed us up, kept us on course, hydrated, etc. were Bree Burker, Heather Burker, Paige Burker, Liuda Galinaitis, Tim Gosnell, Joe Loveland, Paul Macciocca, Chris Reese, Tom Russell (RD), Louise Scalzi, Frank Schaeffer, Christina Scheele, Wendy Steele and Peter Thompson.
