2009 Spring Classic Run

The 2009 Spring Classic Run began and finished in the north  part of Cape's West Park Mall parking area with Mid-America Rehab acting as a major sponsor for the race.  The morning started off rainy and in the low 40's temperature-wise.  Fortunately, the rain stopped just before lining up for the start of this 3.30 mile route.  This year's race included a nasty uphill run up Blattner Drive during the 2nd mile.  People going out a little fast in the first mile often "pay the price" and even the most seasoned, trained runners find this part of the course challenging.  The race concludes with a run around the perimeter of the mall and finishes near Mid-America Rehab.

Cape Roadrunners provided the timing for this race.  Post-race amenities included all-you-could-eat pulled-pork burgers.  They were tasty.

Overall female/male winners were Lora Coots in 25:16 and Kevin Hammes with an 18:59 finish time.
