Close races at Bare Bones 5K that benefits Relay for Life

Close races highlighted both the men’s and women’s races Saturday morning in the 13th Annual Bare Bones 5K at Knox Middle School.
Garrett Ingold took the overall title in 17 minutes and 37 seconds. He was followed by Robert Youtz in 17:48 and Anthony Nero in 18:05.
Gilcelia Torres was the fastest woman in 21 minutes and 14 seconds. Second was Sharon Davis at 21:36 and Lara Stevens in 22 minutes flat.
Drew Rabon won the fun run by covering the half-mile in 4 minutes and 24 seconds.
The name Bare Bones came about when a high level title sponsor pulled out of one of Salisbury’s major races at the last minute, forcing cancellation with such a short notice that it would have been impossible to get the word out.
The Salisbury Rowan Runners decided to take over the race and make it a low-cost thank you to the area running community. The race has sponsorship from the running club’s regular partners only, and it is staffed by club members and Relay for Life volunteers. All proceeds go to Relay for Life.
Used running shoes were collected for Rowan Helping Ministries.
Overall and age group awards were recycled from leftover trophies and medals from the past year.
Sponsors for the event include Novant Health, Cheerwine, Knox Middle School and the city of Salisbury.
A complete listing of results is available at www.salisburyrowanrunners.org
The East/Erwin Band Parents Association Music Run 5K and Fun Run are scheduled for Saturday, May 31, at East Rowan High School. The 5K starts at 9 a.m. and the half mile fun run will follow at about 9:50 a.m.
Age group awards will be presented in 10 age groups, with special awards going to overall and masters winners.
The fun run is for kids, 12 and under.
All participants will get a short-sleeve dri-fit shirt. Refreshments will follow the event.
Sponsors include Novant Health, Food Lion, The Hotdog Shack, Dimensions Dance Arts, October House Bakery and Mark Byrd of State Farm Insurance.
Online registration is available all week at www.sportoften and a printable brochure is available at www.salisburyrowanrunners.org
Call Kim Howard with any questions at 704-279-3339.
