Hannah, Bond win Sherry's Run

LEBANON -- A beautiful day for running produced solid times in Saturdays 8th annual Sherrys Run 5K. Some 3,612 participated in the run/walk with a total of 112 teams. There were 504 entrants running with a computerized timing chip.

Former Lebanon High and Belmont University cross country standout Clay Hannah, 23, took home top honors with a time of 16:54.

Finishing second with a time of 17:30 was Friendship Christian cross country coach Greg Armstrong, 37.

Lebanons Ginny Bond, 29, was the overall female winner with a time of 21:31. Second place went to Elli Hill, 30, of Mt. Juliet with a time of 21:52.

Kerry Dickerson, 46, of Lebanon topped the Male Masters Division (over 40) with a time of 18:04. Nashvilles Amy Breedlove, 42, was the Female Masters medalist with a time of 22:07.

Overall, we had a great day, said race director Scott Jasper. The weather was a big factor. The temperature was in the high 60s, much better than that blistering day we had last year.

The biggest thing is working with our barriers and getting everyone turned at North Greenwood Street, but for an event this size, very few problems.

Race notes -- Chris Kennedy still holds the race record with a time of 16:30 set back in the 2004 inaugural race. Kathryn Kopinski holds the female record at 21:04 set in 2009.

The oldest timed runner was Guillermo Cadena, 77, of Lebanon, who finished in a time of 41:23.

Lebanons Ruthie Farmer was named the Volunteer of the Year.
