Hurricane Arthur stayed off the coast and the recent sweltering hot and humid days gave way to an overcast cloudy morning for the 32nd annual Arbutus Firecracker 10K, which began and ended at Arbutus Middle School Friday.

Archbishop Curley graduate Erik Anderson, 25, took advantage of the ideal conditions and won the race in 33:14.8.

It was the 2012 Duquesne University graduate’s first time running the 6.2-mile course and he wasn’t even sure he would be rested enough because he endured a rain delay the night before during the Orioles’ 5-2 victory over Texas.

“I was actually dreading it,” said the Parkville native. “I went out to the ballgame last night and it got delayed, so I was out to midnight and I was like, ‘This is not going to be good.’”

In fact, it was quite good, as his time was 44 seconds faster than last year’s winning time of Ty Stump, who won the 2013 race for the second straight year.

In this year’s race, which featured 466 finishers, 2013 Hereford High graduate Jon Luckin finished second.
The rising sophomore at the University of Maryland Baltimore County finished in 33:43.4.

It was the second year he had entered the race, but first time he followed the exact course.

“I ran it last summer, but I went well off course so I really don’t know what I would have finished,” said Luckin, who ran for three straight cross country state championship teams at Hereford High.

He used the Firecracker 10K as preparation for his fall cross country season at UMBC and was the top finisher in the age group of 19-and-under.   

 “I really looked at this race to get on the starting line and get a fast run in,” said Luckin, who likes hills. “It’s a tough course. It’s deceptive. The first couple miles have some great downhills to get some speed going, but the last couple miles are tough.”

Rounding out the top 10 males were: Luckin, Andrew Madison (34:43.9), Karsten Brown (34:46.6), Seth Kampf (35:06.8), Ronan O’Shea (35:38.9), Stump (35:54.8), Doug Mock (35:57.2), Matthew France (36:06.7) and Robert Tisch (36:21.2).

Madison is a Catonsville resident and Stump is a 2009 Catonsville High graduate.

The female winner was Julia Roman-Duval, 31, who crossed the line in a time of 36:57.0.

Like Anderson, it was her first time running the Arbutus Firecracker 10K.

It also ended a lapse in competitive racing after a busy spring,

“I ran with a bunch of people from my team, the Howard County Striders, and I haven’t raced in a while and I felt frustrated, so it seemed like a good race to do,” said Roman-Duval, who grew up in France.

Unlike last year when hot and humid conditions led runners to splash through the sprinklers and hoses that the community provided, Roman-Duval stayed away from them.

“I tried to avoid them,” she said. “I guess it wasn’t hot enough and I didn’t want to wet my shoes.”

Her shoes stayed dry and well ahead of the field that included the rest of the top 10 finishers: Tenke Zoltani (37:24.6), Megan DiGregorio (39:35.9), Katie Ainsley (41:03.1), Suzanne Hurst (42:03.9), Denise Knickman (42:41.9), Katie Phipps (43:05.2), Rebecca Hemler (43:08.0), Ashley Seiol (44:25.8) and Colleen Miller (44:52.4).

Zoltani is a former state cross country champion at Dulaney High and DiGregorio, a Perry Hall High graduate, won last year’s race.
