Chardonnay 10-Miler & 5K 2014

One of the oldest races in Santa Barbara, the “Chardonnay” was staged this morning out of Leadbetter Beach. A slight breeze, but otherwise nearly ideal conditions greeted the runners/walkers on the beautiful waterfront course. Ricky Ho continued his dominance in taking the overall 10-Miler place at 57:50. Lucy Marlow from London, England took top honors for the women in 1:06:25. The London contingent also provided the 5K overall winner, Stuart Leslie, at 18:55 while Kerry Buzzell from Hermosa Beach was the top 5K woman in 21:59.
Thanks to race director Jose Gonzalez for an excellent race and fun post-race wine tasting. Also thanks to the many fine volunteers for making this happen.
