Manistee Jingle Bell Jog 5K 2016 Results

The 2016 Manistee Jingle Bell Jog 5K was the best ever!  Almost 150 runners and walkers hit the streets of Manistee in the 9th annual race.

The overall winner of the race was Ginger Breadman, finishing with a time of 17:41.  Breadman (also known as John Lipa) finished ahead of Elliot Kamaloski, who was 2nd in 19:06.  Noelle Fink was the first woman in 21:52, just 2 seconds ahead of Olivia Holtgren.  

Top walkers were Ed Zimmerman (39:30) and Amy Madsen (42:16).

The race was held as a fundraiser for the Manistee cross-country program.  Between entry fees, donations, and sponsorships organized by Lisa Fragomeli, known as the "Jingle Bell General" of the race, over $4000 was raised for the Manistee XC teams.  Thanks for all of your support!
