H.A.M. it Up 5k results - 2013

Over 50 runners took to the streets to run the 4th annual 2013 H.A.M. it Up 5K on Saturday, May 18, 2013.  The event, which helps to kick off Healthy, Active, Manistee Week, was sponsored by the Manistee Recreation Association and Zeller & Johnson Chiropractic.  Dozens of girls from across the county joined in on the festivities, as the annual Girls on the Run 5K was held on the same course just moments after the HAM runners took off.

Jay Shillinger of Ludington was the first male finisher in 20:09, just ahead of Jim Keirlor (20:23), while Marit Ecker of Manistee was the first female (20:45) to cross the line in 3rd overall.

The race was held at Manistee High School, with race proceeds donated to the Manistee Track Fund.
