This is the start of the Jack Donohue Memorial 5K (Jack's 5K) in South Buffalo. 250 runners move out onto the fast USATF certified course. The route starts and ends in Cazenovia Park and includes a lap on the Jack Donohue track at the half way point.
The overall winner was Dan Grande in 16:14. Dan is starting to make winning a habit. Earlier in the year he had already won the Kyle Reid 5K, the Eden 5K and here he wins the Jack's 5K. (2 week's after Jack's 5K, he would win the Highland Hose 5K too!)
The womens overall winner is Katie Wirth. Katie covered the 5k in 18:35 - more than a minute ahead of runner-up Elizabeth Schultz (19:54).

The only runner sporting a Milton Friedman racing top, Stephen shows good running "economy" enroute to his 20:52 clocking - good for 2nd place in the mens 50-54 age group.
If you think Karen looks as if she could run even faster - you're right! Only two weeks after the Jack's 5K Karen shaved almost 3 minutes off her time at the Mississippi Mudds 5K!
