City of Roses Half Marathon & 5K

Cape Girardeau, MO -- September 19, 2010
(Results @ SplitMaster Timing and Cape Road Runners: and )
(Race photos available from Goddard Photography: )

Nice turnout for 30th anniversary.  Chad Sierman and Shawn Brumfield run off from the field with Chad winning the overall in 1:18:30.  Aspiring pro ultimate frisbee athlete Mark Hahn takes the male masters division with a solid and well-executed effort.  Annie Bellantone from South Bend, IN wins the female overall in 1:29:59.  58 year old Kim Cheonae first in female masters.  High school runners did a first-class job working the course.  Their coaches should be proud.  My first half marathon.  Hope to take lessons learned and do it better next time out.

The 215 runners take off at the 30th Annual City of Roses Half Marathon.

Half Marathon Overall Winner Chad Sierman.

L to R - Rob Dodson, Don Brown, Kevin Bramlett, Bruce Nie,
