Brian Rohne Memorial Run/ Walk Recap
About 175 runners and walkers flocked to Northern Kentucky University for the 17th Annual Brian Rohne Memorial Run / Walk(View Photos). It was raining in several areas around the Greater Cincinnati area except for Highlands Heights KY. However that almost did not stop the timers and finish line personnel from getting wet as the lawn sprinklers by the finish came on about 5 minutes after the race started. The overcast skies allowed some fast times to be run as the first 35 finishers were under 17:40. Congratulations to overall men's winner Adam Gloyeske and overall women's winner Kayla Justice. Adam ran a time of 15:53 and Kayla ran a time of 19:36. Congratulations to both. Go to for a complete list of results.
The Brian Rohne Memorial 5K is held each year in honor of former NKU cross country runner Brian Rohne, who was killed by an automobile in January of 1993 while on a training run on the AA Highway in Cold Spring, Ky. During the 1992 fall season, Rohne had earned most valuable runner honors for NKU after being named All-Great Lakes Valley Conference.
