In its 26th year, the Sunrise Kiwanis Greater Goldsboro Road Run is enjoying a regional reputation that brings runners from all around the area to downtown Goldsboro.
Saturday's Road Run brought runners from Pennsylvania, South Carolina and as far away in-state as Mebane, with several groups of runners from Raleigh, Cary and Jacksonville taking part.
Four first-time winners were crowned in all four competitive events -- and all four were running the Road Run for the first time.
It was a clear morning that held a cool breeze and bright sun. Most of the competitors thought the conditions were ideal.
The 5K race started first, with a large field taking the starters' gun. Winner Derek Fenton of Raleigh posted a 16:12 time, 51 seconds ahead of second-place finisher Isrrael Jaimes of Wilson.
Fenton is back running after nearly a year's absence form the sport.
"I had been running for about four years before that," he said. "I like it (the course). It was all good, a little windy coming back, but it's all good. I just kind of ran my pace, and it all came out for the best."
Women's 5K winner Jewel Marlowe had a following with her. The track coach at Wayne Country Day School and a fifth-grade teacher, Marlowe won her race in 21:07 and then took several grammar-school children on the 1-mile Fun Run.
"Those were kids from my fifth-grade class, and some sixth and seventh graders," said Marlowe. "It was great for them to come out and try it."
The 10K winner for the men was Dave Max, an Air Force member stationed at Seymour Johnson Air Force Base. A runner who went to high school in Hickory and then kept running while he was in college in Iowa, Max clocked a 34:04 for the course, over two and a half minutes ahead of second-place Jim Michaels of Raleigh.
"It was a beautiful day to run," Max said. "The course was flat, and that's exactly what you want."
The women's 10K winner was a familiar face to most area runners -- Elizabeth Martin of Mount Olive. Martin just graduated from Mount Olive College as the most successful distance runner in school history, making two straight appearances at the NCAA Division II national championship meet.
Her 41:12 clocking of the 10K course was six and a half minutes better than Debra Caviness of Mrytle Beach, who placed second.
"It was a great day," Martin said. "I felt good. I had somebody to run with, and that was good. I enjoyed the water stops, and I thank the volunteers for holding off the cars. It was a great day."
The children had a great turnout for the 1-mile Fun Run/Walk. Also on the schedule was a "slowpoke race," in which selected "athletes" who were considered by their businesses as the most out-of-condition ran a one-block race. Glenn Rains of the Goldsboro News-Argus barely beat the Walking Pizza Slice from Pizza Inn for the victory.
