SALISBURY — Robert Miller won the fourth St. Patrick’s Day 5K on Saturday, beating out about 160 other runners in perfect racing weather.
Miller ran the course in 16 minutes and 55 seconds, followed by Josh Readling in 18:02 and RJ Scott at 18:41.
Melissa Orr topped the women 21:44, edging out Acquawon Stallworth in 22:44 and Ester Marsh in 23:07.
“That climb up Monroe is tough,” Miller said. “It is really fast after that, though. It was just a great morning for a race.”
Sponsors included Rowan Regional Medical Center, F&M Bank, JF Hurley YMCA and the city of Salisbury. Proceeds have been designated for the restoration of a 1941 American LaFrance ladder truck formerly used by the Salisbury Fire Department.
“We had great support from the community and from the JF Hurley YMCA,” race director Terry Smith said. “The firefighters and the auxiliary look forward to this day each year. Next year, we hope to have the ladder truck here for everyone to see. It might not be finished, but we expect the work to at least be under way. It will be a showpiece for all of Salisbury to be proud of.”
Jim Crotts of Clemmons added, “This race has the feeling of a small town race. I know that the organizers here in Salisbury care that I came. It is fun to race here as much as I can.”
