Dannelly 10k draws record turnout

-A A +A

Dunson and Hylander lead a field that has more than doubled in size in the past five years.

By The Gazette

 The New River Trail-Dr. Ed Dannelly III 10k continues to grow in popularity with a record number of participants turning out for the event on May 5.

A race that drew 93 total participants just five years ago, 120 runners competed in the 10k alone, with another 75 taking part in the 5k walk. The 195 total shattered last year’s record of 172.

Participants in the 10k ranged in age from 8-year-old Kolby Durocher to 70-year-old Joel Hicks, one of eight competitors aged 60 or older. Another 11 ages 15 and younger completed the 6.2-mile run. The older set did quite well for themselves, with 11 of the top 40 runners being 50 and over, including 10th-place finisher Finn Pincus (55) and 13th-place Doc Weiss (62).

David Dunson of Chapel Hill, N.C., was the male overall winner, finishing the course in 37 minutes, 16 seconds. Josh Fridley was second overall in 37:52 and 15-year-old Grayson County runner Tyler Pauley placed third in 38:38.

Rebecca Hylander, a 30-year-old Fries resident, was the overall female winner and was eighth in the entire field, posting a time of 42:27. She was trailed in the female standings by a pair of 14-year-olds – Ashley Jordan, a Galax Middle School eighth-grader who finished second in 45:48, and Megan Boyles, whose time of 48:30 was good for third.

Jordan was one of three runners to set new age group records, joining Hicks in the 70-over group and Donna Akers of Narrows, whose 1:01:33 was a new record for the female 60-69 age group.

Both Dunson and Hylander were first-time winners in the event, sponsored by the Galax Parks and Recreation Department.

Glen Bailey (40:08), Larry Meadors (40:41), Matthew Calton (42:02), Chandler Quesenberry (42:21), Brian Miller (42:35), Pincus and Aaron Sage (44:02) rounded out the top 10 male runners.

Following the female top three were Jennifer Laws (49:27) Dawn Weeks (50:45), Lynette Smith (50:49), Teresa Shepard (52:55), Brooke Meserole (53:45), Liz Wiston-Dean (54:42) and Jennifer Wintringham (55:09).

Laken Rutherford, Ed Weaver, Jeremy Chappell, Roxann Gravely and Robin Dillon were the first five finishers in the 5k walk.
