The fourth annual Rudolph Run was held Dec. 6.
The Rudolph Run was a fundraiser to help out the After Prom. It raised about $790. The money will be used for prizes and renting attractions for After Prom.
The run started at the corner of 3rd Street and Main Street. From there, they went down south Main Street and through Lemon Park. After they went through Lemon Park, the participants went through 6th Street Park and around the pool. Following that, they went back up 2nd Street, and to Main Street, which led them back to where the race started.
Each male and female first, second and third place runners got a prize. The first place male runner was Garrett Bell with the time of 22:28. The second place runner was Mike Neifert and the third place runner was Matt Swonger. In the female division the first place was awarded to Andrea Taylor with the time of 25:33. The second place runner was Mindy Wiltshire and the third place runner was Amanda Meiklejohn.
“I really enjoy running 5Ks and I also just like to run,”sophomore Garrett Bell said. “I haven’t done the Rudolph Run before, and was most excited to run through Lemon Park to see all of the lights.”
There were a total of 60 runners, 40 of which preregistered. Out of the juniors and seniors, 29 of them paired up with someone and they had to scatter around the course and help tell the runners the direction to go.
