At 8:25am 367 runners made their way to the starting line and at 8:30 the starter’s gun sounded. The 1300 block was filled with runners who helped raise $80,000 supporting the many transformative programs here at City of Refuge.
19 minutes 5 seconds after the gun sounded Dominic Nguyen stepped across the finish line earning first prize out of all 367 runners. At a remarkable 21 minutes and 7 seconds the overall female winner, Maggie O’Leary stepped across the finish line.
Whether it was little six-year old Ryan Ashley or 76-year-old James Macie, each runner ran a fantastic race and we are very grateful for all our participants. We could not have pulled this race off without our volunteers who showed up at 5:45am to make sure things were ready to go. It was an amazing day and we hope to see you all out there for the Refuge Run again next year!
