Manistee Jingle Bell Jog 2017 Results!

Perfect weather for a great race!  Sunny and 40's - and did we see a few shirtless runners today?

Over 150 runners and walkers completed the 2017 Jingle Bell Jog 5K on December 2nd.  Top male runner was Brett Schlaff (18:42), breaking a 7-year winning streak held by John Lipa (aka Buddy Elf, aka Chris K Ringle, aka Ginger Breadman, aka Clark Griswold.)  Lipa took 2nd this year in 19:10.  Noelle Fink defending her women's title, finishing in 21:18, finishing ahead of Sheena Northrup (21:30) and Denny Calling (21:50.)  Kris Willick (42:45) and Jim Berish (49:06) were the top walkers.

Thanks to our fantastic sponsors, led by the contributions of our "Jingle Bell General" Lisa Fragomeli, over $2000 was raised for the Manistee Cross-Country teams.  This money will go to pay for new warm-ups and help cover the cost for trips to large invitationals.
