2015 Firecracker 5K was a blast!

On a gorgeous morning, the 2015 Manistee Firecracker 5K had well over 300 runners and walkers finish the 5K run/walk and 1K fun run!  The annual event, which raises funds and awareness for the community track fund, was held July 4th at Manistee High School.  Don Richmond (former CMU runner) won in 16:24, nearly a minute faster than runner-up John Lipa (top male master).  For the ladies, Ms. Track & Field Michigan and Gatorade 2015 Track Athlete of the Year Annie Fuller took first in 20:30.  Top female masters Kim Poma finished at 22:25.  Overall winners got trophies and gift certificates to Snyder's Shoes.  Age group winners took home plaques, while runner-ups got medals.  All fun runners got a finish medal!  Runners enjoyed food, courtesy of Family Fare, after the race.

Thanks to all the athletes that competed and thank you all volunteers that made this a successful event!  Michiana Timing once again had instant results thanks to their chip-timing system.
