LOTS OF HUFFIN' AND PUFFIN' ON A HOT MORNING – People of all shapes, sizes and ages join in Kiowa's Labor Day 5K Race. It was a hot, humid morning for the 336 runners and walkers who entered, but it was worth it for the 287 who finished and received a commemorative medal.

"It was hot and miserable," Kiowa's Labor Day 5K Race Founder Kent McBrayer said of the conditions for the 35th annual event.

Of the 336 who signed up to enter the race just 287 finished, McBrayer said. Each of the finishers received a commemorative medal. As reported in the Newsgram last week former Alva man Luis Chavez was the overall winner, finishing with a time of 16:41. The Chavez family had a double celebration as his wife Bailey was the fastest woman in the race and 4th overall with a time of 21:04.

The winners of each division follow as presented by the race committee. Only the finish time of the winner of each division was provided.

Mylo Miller (South Barber superintendent) was the second fastest runner with a time of 18:41. Heather Miller's time was 23:55. They were both Kiowa's First Finishers.

The Masters winners were Shanin Russell, 25:16, and Kip Coulter 22:42.

Youngest Finishers were Lawson Ream, age 5, and Joseph McKinney, age 4; Oldest Finishers were Carolyn Langenwalter, age 81, and Dale Depue, age 84; Middle-of-the-Pack was Jayden Michel.
