RRRC Sweetheart 8K, presented by TowneBank

It was a warm, and mostly non-rainy, morning for the 357 finishers of the Sweetheart 8K. Race results are available here.

The top individual finishers (chip time) were:

  • 1st Male Open - Emmett Saulnier - 28:19.9
  • 1st Female Open - Keira D'Amato - 30:01.8
  • 1st Male Master - Jason Dowdy - 29:39.0

26 couples participated in the Couples Challenge. The team Power of the Apostrophe (Keira D'Amato and Anthony D'Amato) posted the fastest team time, while team Aussie Love (Lauren Moran and Anthony Beauglehole) were the fastest couple to cross the finish line together.  

Our thanks as always to race director Marcy George for another great race. Also a big thanks to all of the volunteers who came out yesterday and today to support the runners, this race and RRRC.

Special thanks go to our presenting sponsor TowneBank, gold sponsor Lucky Road Run Shop, and bronze sponsors Active Chiropractic and Urban Farmhouse
