Story by Tom Rownd - Wheeling, WV — On a perfect
autumn morning for road racing, Valley Grove’s Sean Flanagan won
the eighth annual Auggie’s 5K Run & Walk in a time of 17:10.
Bellaire’s Dennis Delbert (18:00) held-off a charge by veteran cross-country
coach David Castle (18:04) to secure second place.
In the walking division, Wheeling’s Tony Purpura, who last year placed third to Jerry Goodwin, upset the reigning champion by thirty seconds with a scintillating time of 29:23. David Workman crossed the finish line on Viking Drive at Warwood Middle School in 31:23 for third place.
Martin’s Ferry’s Dana Bendel easily won the female division of the walk in 32:31, and Josey Goodwin (36:17) beat Michelle Milbert by a mere second to win third place honors.
Notably, Richard Hall placed fifth overall while winning the 60 to 69 age division of the run; and Gordon Downie placed forty-fourth overall at age 72 in a time of 24:29, winning his age division by a whopping four and a half minutes.
More than 160 runners and walkers participated in the race, which was sponsored by the Ohio Valley Runners’ & Walkers’ Club and which benefits the programming of the Ohio County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
