What a beautiful day it was for the 14th Annual Bike for Women. Over 600 women and young girls came out yesterday for the 9-mile event in Chugiak. Sunny skies, warm temperatures and fantastic road conditions helped pave the way for some record setting results.
Posting the fastest time of the day at 23:02 Sheryl Loan also set a new course record for the 55-59 age group. She now holds three age group course records. Second across the line was Maddy Boutet with a time of 23:22 setting, yet another record; this time in the 15-19 year age category. Rounding out the top three adult finishers was Amber Stull with a time of 23:45.
Overall results are also awarded for the top three junior finishers under age 14. Ellie Mitchell took top honors in the juniors with a time of 29:16, followed by Vanessa Duhrsen and Heidi Booher.
Awards will be presented to the Top 3 overall adult and junior finishers and to the Top 3 finishers in each age category from 5-9 on up. Remember, the top 3 overall in both adult and juniors will be taken OUT of the age group awards, which means (for example) if you place 4th in your age group but the top person in your age group was a top 3 finisher overall, then you now are actually in 3rd place in your age group and will be receiving an reward.
Many thanks to the dozens of volunteers who came out to make the day safe and fun for everyone!
The Awards Banquet is Tuesday, May 6th at 6:00pm at the Kincaid Chalet. Please join us for pizza, awards, door prizes, fundraising presentation to Let Every Woman Know and a celebration of the Bike for Women and all of the 2014 finishers!
