Running

There were 53 runners on hand for the second Howard County Striders fall weekly series race, held at Northfield Elementary School. Confusing paint markings on the course caused several participants to miss the turn on Dunloggin Road, leaving racers running various lengths ranging from 2.5 to 4.5 miles. The result of the miscue is that there were no winners this week.

John Way was the first finisher on the correct course.
