Dirty Lion 5K Mud Run slides into another year

 

On Saturday, Eagles Nest was transformed from a residential community into a swarming pool of endurance runners taking part in the 2014 Dirty Lion 5K Mud Run.

After running through the woods, maneuvering over a series of tires and several retaining wall climbs, splashing in a 25 foot mud pool, a dip into the Potomac River, and an all-out-mad-dash toward the finish line, Cori French became the overall women’s of the Mud Run, sponsored by the Dahlgren Lions Club.

The 14-year resident of King George finished the 5K in 51:00 minutes. This year’s race marked the second running of the event.

When French is not running, she is competitively racing UCAR racecars. She is also an avid 5k endurance runner in local Fredericksburg area races. April Hughes, also a King George resident, finished second overall with a time of a 51:18.

Other notable first place age group women’s finishers from King George included: Sabrina Alvarez, 20-29, 57:05; Ashley Sisson, 30-39, 54:50; Tara Patteson, 40-49, 58:38; Jennifer Ayres, 55:08. There was a total of 17 women’s runners from King George.

As for the men, 45-year old Woodbridge resident, Dennis Billings finished the race in 34:09 to become the overall winner. King George resident, Gavin Taylor finished second overall with a time of 39:26.

Fletcher Lee, out of Colonial Beach, finished first in the 19 & under division with a time of 57:15. Fellow Colonial Beach resident Wayne Rose finished first in the 50-59 division with a time of 47:18. Montross resident, Scott Broske finished first in the 30-39 age group with a time of 41:35.

In the men’s category, there were 11 runners from King George, three runners from Colonial Beach, and one runner from Montross.

The One-Mile Leo Mud Run featured kids ages 6-13. The following King George girls finished in first place:  Raelyn Taylor, 7-8, 21:26; Savannah Taylor, 9-10, 21:53; Rebecca Tidwell, 11-13, 19:01.

As for the King George boys, the following runners finished in first place: Benjamin Tidwell, 7-8, 9:20; Dylan Veazey, 11-13, 8:17.

Among the numerous volunteers and vendors was King George chiropractor, Dr. Shawn Pallotti, DC. With the potential for minor and major injuries, Pallotti aided runners before and after the event. “I am certified in the technique called ART (active release technique),” Pallotti said. “The technique focuses on taking care of triathletes, marathon runners, and people who jump off things. The types of activities that they are doing today are stressful on your body.”

The Dahlgren Lions Club, also known as the eyes and ears of King George is committed to the eye care of any one in need.
