Inverhuron Run celebrates 25 years

From Kincardine News
Wednesday September 16, 2009
Fun, fellowship and fitness was the goal of this year's 25th annual Inverhuron Run.
A total of 99 runners participated in the Sept. 6 event, which welcomed beautiful, sunny weather.
Route 1 was 2.11 miles with 62 runners.
The winner was Ian Stewart of Inverhuron/Burlington, with a time of 14:15.
Coming in a close second was Kristen Green of Inverhuron/Saline, Michigan, at 14:28.
She was once again the fastest female at the ripe old age of 14 years old and she ran the race with a broken right arm.
Route 2 saw 37 runners with Dana Nickles of Sarnia, coming in first place with a time of 37:34.
The fastest female was Janet Thorsteinson of Inverhuron/Whitby at 46:27, in seventh place overall.
Donna Irvine and Alicia Noakes of the Inverhuron and District Ratepayers Association (IDRA) served a big cake to commemorate the 25th running.
Jean Ferguson, age 75, of Inverhuron/Walkerton was once again the "recording artist".
For each of the 25 runs between years 1985-2009, she has recorded the race times on the results board as we call them out over the PA system.
Steve Hasbury, of Armow, provided the PA system.
Stacey Jewett was the "Pace Bunny", riding on a bike ahead of the pack and leading the runners through the common section of the two routes - along the shoreline trail from the beach parking lot to Holmes Bay.
Staff from the Park (Shannon, Megan, and Elaine) assisted with planning and traffic.
Several volunteers among them -
The Kole Family,
Ryan Stewart,
Betty Lamont, Don McLaughlin,
David Howes
served as spotters to keep everyone on the correct race route.
As they have done for several years, Tony Lancia and Patsy Jewett pulled the sticker off of each participant's racing bib, and posted them in correct sequence on the results board - a very rushed and demanding job!
