Runners toe line for Lakefest 5K

South Boston News / July 25, 2018
Over 160 runners toed the line Saturday morning at the eastern end of the old route 58 bridge in Clarksville for the Lakefest 5k Fun Run presented by the Mecklenburg County YMCA and Sentara Halifax Regional Hospital.

With overcast skies, breezy conditions and temperatures in the low 70s the runners enjoyed some of the finest running weather this race has seen in years. Ideal conditions brought out some fast times as young local runner Frank Csorba finished the 5 kilometer distance (3.1 miles) in a blistering 17:30.1 seconds. Csorba will run cross country for Bluestone High School this fall.

Second place overall went to Felipe Rodreguez in 18:58.6 seconds and hot on his heels was Chesapeake cross country runner Jordan Grinkewitz in 19:14.6.

On the women’s side, Kayla Royster took the victory completing the course in 21:49.5, good enough for eighth place overall. Devon Maltese was the second place woman at 23:00.9. The third place woman and 15 place overall runner was Laura Howes crossing the line in 23:34.3.

The untimed one-mile kids fun run took place after the 5k. Tripp Riddle, 10, won for the boys. For the girls, 7 year old Kora Bryan took the win while sporting latest in running fashion, the running tutu.
