Thank you for a successful first ever Mountaindale Sun Fun 5K Run/Walk


Thank you Don, Rylla, Ronny and all of the many volunteers who helped prepare and host the first ever  Mountaindale Sun Fun 5K Run/Walk.  And thank you to the men and women who ran or walked in the event despite it being announced barely two weeks before and despite the light rain on the day of the run/walk.   The 5K average run time was 39 minutes and 48 seconds.  Not bad for a 400 feet elevation gain over a half mile (as the crow flies).  The event also included a 1 Mile walk over relatively level ground and the average time for that was 22 minutes and 58 seconds.  I think most of the participants spent the rest of the day in the hot tub because of the rain and stayed for a couscous and chicken dinner with a spicy lentil soup and belly dancing by a 12 member troupe.  Stay tuned, this event will be moved to August 5 next year.  Thank you again everyone.  Henry
