Midsummer 3K attracts 200

This race got on the calendar a little late, but a crowd of almost 200 showed up to run two laps around Kleman Plaza. The course starts right behind City Hall and is very spectator friendly. You can watch the start and then run to the opposite side of Kleman Plaza and look down on the runners from high up. It is a hilly course, but fun to run.

FSU distance coach Paul Spangler broke 9:00 minutes by one second in this 3K (1.9 mile) race to win for the second straight year. Brooke Bastien was the top female runner with her time of 11:20.

Race director Shannon Sullivan was determined to make sure everyone had a good time and that seemed to happen as a party broke out in the Adams Street Commons with food and drinks provided by Clyde's and Andrews.
