Weather, trails are winners at 7&7 race

More than 200 runners participate; more expected next year


"It's not too bad," he said, pointing to his left foot. "It was a fun race. It's really hilly, and the trails are small."

Samuel McNulty of Waconia placed second with a time of 21:43. Kris Anderson of Mankato was the female 5K winner with a time of 23:55, and Eve Anderson (24:35) finished second.

"This really is a perfect location," Jennifer Myers said. "It takes a certain type of person to run a seven-mile race. It takes a little more training and tenacity, so I give props to these people for coming out here."

An estimated 227 runners participated. Crocker expects the numbers to increase next year.

"We're really excited about this event," he said. "We're starting to attract more people from outside the area, and days like today can only make it better."
