This past Saturday, June 2nd, was the 34th Annual Freihofer’s Run for Women which featured 5,000 runners from all ages and abilities! SportsSignup would like to congratulate defending champion Mamitu Daska of Ethiopia on her winning time of 15:20, missing the course all time best by eight seconds.
2012 was also the 2nd annual Freihofer’s Junior 3K Run. Presented by SportsSignup, this 1.86-mile road race was a professionally timed race for youth girls and boys (ages 9-14). New to this year’s Junior 3K Run event was the added benefit of “Kids Helping Kids.” For each registered youth runner, SportsSignup donated $10 donation to the Melodies Center for Childhood Cancer and Blood Disorders at the Children’s Hospital at Albany Medical Center.
SportsSignup would like to congratulate last year’s winner, Riley Grossman, on his second consecutive win! Riley set a new course record of 11:30, betting his winning time from last year by almost a full minute. Awards were given to the First Place girl (Keellyn Cummings) and boy overall and to the top 3 girls and boys in the following age groups: 9-10, 11-12 and 13-14.
