Top female was Stacy Bushman of Cincinnati OH who ran a 6:43. She was followed by Cindy Moore who ran a 6:53 and Charlotte Gould who ran a 7:47.   (View results).
 Thank you to our volunteers Julia Hess, Marty Hovey,  Stacy Osborne, and Todd Hofacre.  Without their help, the race could not have happened.  A special thank to the City of Blue Ash for allowing us to use Summit Park and the taxi runway for the race.
