35th McConnell’s 5K & 10K

It was a fitting tribute to long time McConnell’s race director Kevin Young that the 35th McConnell’s was another successful event. After 35 years Kevin is stepping down as director and next year, while there will be a McConnell’s, Kevin will probably be kicking back and enjoying the event rather than running around coordinating everything.
In today’s races the 5K saw Todd Straka from Boulder, CO finish first in 16:27 with Michelle Ip from Moorpark the top woman at 20:36. For the 10K, which was a Grand Prix race, Ramiro Guillen won with a time of 32:46. Jill Himlan was the first 10K woman at 37:34.
Per tradition the star attraction at McConnell’s was the delicious ice cream. A bowl or two of McConnell’s ice cream was the perfect ending for many after a good run or walk.
Special thanks to Kevin for all these years of staging one of the more enjoyable events of the season. Also thanks to all the fine volunteers.
