Molly Roohi wins SPCA 5K Run women’s overall

 

Area four legged canines and felines have more than their share of friends. 

On Sunday morning at 7 a.m., the sight of 464 avid fitness enthusiasts running through the streets of downtown Fredericksburg was a vision to behold. The annual SPCA Rescue 5K Run featured 31 runners from King George alone. Proceeds from the race were donated to the Fredericksburg Regional SPCA No-Kill Facility.

Triathlon super-athlete Molly Roohi was the overall women’s winner with a time of 18:38. King George resident Kathleen Fike finished first in the 60-69-age group with a time of 24:40.

As for the men, 29-year-old Fredericksburg resident Bert Jacoby ran the men’s and event overall best time (15:46). Race participants ranged from age one to over 70 years old.

After B101.5 bumble bee mascot Buzzy, gave runners his traditional opening wave of encouragement, the atmosphere in front of the Fredericksburg Library quickly changed from serene to a human stampede.
