Dust doesn't slow down runners on VBC
June 16, 2008
Runners from Victory Base Complex took part in Spring Fling 2008, a 10-Kilometer fun run, at Victory Stage South, June 8.
The run was hosted by a group of independent runners lead by Shanna Stann, 62nd Medical Brigade communications representative, and sponsored by Binary Group, an Army contracting company, who gave 600 free t-shirts for the event.
"The run is a lot of fun," Stann said. "It is a good group of runners. The weather was kind of bad with the dust kicking up, but it makes it cooler.
We left it up to the runners if they wanted to run in this weather, which it looked like the majority did."
The first place male winner was Christopher Lawrence, 10th Mountain Division band, at 31 minutes. The first place female winner was Amanda Feia, 851 Engineer Company, at 39:15 minutes.
Trophies were awarded to the first, second and third place winners for both males and females.
