This year’s Coal Country Run drew a large crowd to Woodlawn Regional Park on Saturday.
The run started at the park’s Rotary Hall. Participants could walk or run a distance of five or 10 kilometres, and there was also a mini mile for children.
A total of 143 people participated, including 15 for the mini mile.
It raised $5,200 for the Fresh Air Fitness outdoor exercise area on the park’s east end.
In the five-kilometre event, Rolfe Pletzmueller had the best time among the men at 23 minutes and 36 seconds, while Chantel Longman was the fastest female at 27:48.
In the 10 kilometres, Mark Newtwon was the fastest male at 46:54, while Leigh Rosengren was the fastest woman at 48:21.
As for the mini mile, Bree Poelen was the fastest girl, while Idiana Froese was the fastest boy.
In conjunction with the event, there was a small expo with eight vendors. They also had a free yoga session to stretch and warm up before the race, and free massages after the run/walk.
Brunch was served and awards were handed out after the event.
