1st Annual Just For Kicks 10k & 5k ~ Rodeo Edition Trail Run

1st Annual Just For Kicks 10k & 5k Trail Run was 3 weeks ago.  I’m just now getting time to post on it, my apologies for the delay.

This run was held during our local county fair and rodeo in Panaca, Nv.  It was a regular 5k/10k run but the finish awards had a twist, rodeo style twist.

I want to thank the few participants I had, several drove all the way from California to run it.

Lillian O’Rourke from Carisbad Ca with a time of 19:26…Wowzers!
I started the race, blinked, and she was done.  Amazing job young lady.
Her partners in running crime, also from Cali, came in behind her within 2 minutes.  2nd overall was Sydney Resser with a time of 21:38 and 3rd overall was Madelyn Poole with a very close time of 21:53.  4th overall, another young gun, Kiera Erickson from Cedar Hills UT, with a time of 22:19.  Well done to these young ladies!  They all have bright futures in running.  Huge honor to have them at one of my races.

WINNER OF THE 2D RUN-ARREL RACE was our one and only local who I love dearly, Marie Bleak from Pioche Nv with a smokin time of 24:07….less than 2 minutes behind the 15 year old young gun.  I would say that is awesome Marie.  Well done Friend.

WINNER OF THE 3D RUN-ARREL RACE was again a beautiful local also from Pioche, Jaycee Bernal with a time of 29:31.  And on her tail was another Utah gal who plays basketball for Dixie State, Hannah Robins with a 29:35.  This next runner not only killed in time ..buuuut gave us the drama theatrics saying at the start “I’m old or I never run”…blah blah blah, well this Alamo gal, Chassy Old Lady Scott ran it in 29:52.  Just a few minutes behind all these young whipper snappers . See I told you, you would be fine.
Gracie Carter from Mesquite brought it home with a 45:55, she did awesome for coming as support and ended up running.

And to my one and only 10ker, Paula Dehner from Mesquite won the 10k and ran it well with a 1:08:37.

Congratulations to all my participants at this race.  The conversations were awesome and hope to see you all again at a Rocky Road Adventures race.  Most of all I look forward to doing it again next year!

A Special Recognization

In March of 2018, I decided to create a business and start this adventure down the race directing, trail running road.  Rocky Road Adventures is closing in on its one year anniversary as a business.  The first race was in August of 2018, Lincoln County Adventure Relay, that RRA decided to take over from previous individuals putting it on for many years. Following LCAR was Rocky Road Adventures 1st annual Battle Born Trail Run in recognizance of Nevada Day and 1st annual Little BIG Dog Trail Run, a challenged run with your pup.  

This blog is recognizing the participant that ran in all 3 of those races above and finished 1st place overall in all 3.  This local resident and bad-ass competitor not only won all 3 races but has been a wonderful supporter of my new business adventure.

A huge shout out to SARAH SOMERS of Pioche, Nv.

Thank you Sarah and Hope to see at more of RRA Events!
