Honeygo Family 5k Raises Funds for Police Explorers
Over 120 runners toed the start line this past Sunday for the 2nd Annual Honeygo Family 5k at Honeygo Run Regional Park. Local Brick Bodies Personal Trainer, Taryne Davila got the day started with an energetic group warmup at the finish line before Baltimore County Police started the race with a siren blast.
Alex Loper returned to successfully defend his 2010 win with a 17:18 effort, and Elizabeth Lelonek took top honors for the women in 22:07. After the 5k wrapped up, it was time for the kids to hit the trail for the 1 mile fun run. 11 year old Connor Chemelli completed the hilly course in 6:15 to lead the pack. Thanks to Chick-fil-A of Nottingham Square, all participants were treated to chicken nuggets after they finished.
The event raised $400 for Baltimore County Police Explorer Post #9909 in White Marsh, and was a huge success. We look forward to growing the event in 2012 and raising even more for local causes. Thank you to everyone who came out on Sunday; we hope you had a great time!
