This past Saturday the streets were covered in green as over 2,200 runners and walkers kicked pavement for the 10th Annual Steve Haydu St. Patrick’s Lo Tide Run 5k/10k. Participants of all ages and skill levels came to support one cause, and that was to ease financial burdens to locals fighting cancer. This year’s event broke records in both individual and team participation! Team Emily’s Lucky Charms took the win for largest team with 98 registrants; this year’s Team Spirit Award went to Bev’s 5k 50th Bash and the Fastest Team Award went to the Island Gazette.
This year’s 5k overall winners are as follows: for the males Joe Harty took 1st place with a time of 17:53, Will Mayo took 2nd place by the tip of his nose edging out 3rd place male, Vaughn Rizzo both with a chip time of 18:46 all 3 are Ashley High School students. First place female was Carolina Beach’s Christina Dees with a time of 21:00, Valerie Stinson took 2nd place with a time of 22:41 and 3rd place went to Biron Bradford with a time of 22:43. 10k overall winners are as follows: 1st place went to Fort Bragg’s Cameron Holman with a time of 37:11, 2nd place all the way from Annapolis was Jeremy Beall, Jeremy’s Mom Linda Beall is retiring from the board this year and she will be deeply missed! 3rd place was awarded to Carolina Beach’s Wes Brown with a time of 40:21.

New to this year’s event, organizers created a water stop contest encouraging sponsors to bring all of their St. Patrick’s Day Spirit. While everyone did a great job, there could be only be one winner and that was Bozart Family Practice! The fun didn’t stop at the race, as everyone was encouraged to continue the fun at the Lazy Pirate’s Official Lo Tide Run After Party.
