— A record was shattered and, as a group with impressive overall numbers in the fifth annual Jumpstart St. Patrick’s Day run/walk Saturday, March 16.

On a cool, crisp spring morning, more than 170 local harriers went to work in the 3k, 5k and 10k run/walk at The Dalles Marina.

Many of the same names that competed in the Freeze Your Gizzard Blizzard race and the Valentine’s Day run capped their three-race stretch in the St. Patrick’s Day journey to cap a fundraising feat for administrator Tom Conklin’s Jumpstart Hoops Camp fundraiser.

In the three distance races, there were a few close finishes and former state champion, Dufur High School graduate Alex Dillard, scored top honors in the men’s 10k race with a record-setting romp over Jim Fish (39.39) of more than eight minutes.

Dillard’s score shattered Portland native Joe Dudman’s 2008 record of 34:12 in a time of 31:37.

Coming off a recent indoor 5k meet, where Dillard set a new personal record of 14:43 while running for the University of Portland, he took his running to the trail in a longer event.

“The breeze was working against me on the way out and my splits were generally faster on the way back,” Dillard said to Conklin. “It was nice to open up on a longer race today.”

After Dillard and Fish, Lucas King crossed the tape in third place at 40.42, Jason Whitley tacked on fourth with his 41.54 and Brad Anderson turned in a 48.16 top complete the top-5.

Stephanie Irving and Betsy Scott slugged it out in a stride-for-stride rally in the women’s 10k run, where five seconds was the biggest difference in the overall running numbers.

Irving stopped the watch in 50.55, and Scott motored right behind in 51.00.

Erin Ford had a solid performance at 53.27 for third place, Caitlin Lynch worked a 54.55 split for fourth and Amanda Hoey ran for 54.57 to slam out fifth place.

Sylvan Sandvold staked claim to the men’s 3k crown with a marker of 13:09, as he bested Larry Dunn (13:36) by 27 seconds.

Justin Conklin captured third place in the standings with a final tally of 14:34.

Omar Quintana (15.02), Dayveon Hammitt (15.16), Dylan Trainer (15.22), William Booth (15.23), Dwight Trainer (15.26), Luis Quintana (16.22) and Brian Strassheim (16.59) rounded out the men’s standings.

Molly Taylor had a close showdown against Savannah Strassheim in the women’s 3k event with 56 seconds separating the duo.

Taylor secured bragging rights on this day, however, with a final tally of 16.03, while Strassheim crossed the wire in 16.59.

Ashlie Dunn added a 17.17 for third place, Mary Snodgrass (18.11) ended up fourth and Varina Schechter topped out in fifth place with her reading of 18.41.

While the adults received all of the headlines, Conklin pointed out the exploits of the 17 District 21 students who attended the spring race.

With the ability to run in these events free of charge, Conklin said this offer gives children an added incentive to approach a more active and healthy lifestyle.

“We are trying to get the younger age kids in our classrooms, from our district, to take their physical fitness beyond the gym to community events like these, so that they can see the fun and joy of older adults partaking in a fun event such as these three races,” Conklin concluded.

Former The Dalles Wahtonka standout runner Ben Iremonger made things look easy in his 5k distance where his time read 19.00 for top honors.

Tony Dean wound up in second at 20.42 and William McBride notched third in 21.16.

Bill Dressel (22.49), David Bandel (24.15), Anthony Rosso (24.37), Eric Nisley (24.56), Owen Lamp (27.05), Steve Whitesides (28.01) and Todd Andrews (28.43) completed the top-10 5k runners overall.

On the women’s 3k front, Susie Griffin eased past Sheila Burchell in a meeting at the wire.

Griffin stopped the watch in 26.42, while Burchell finished a few strides behind in a marker of 26.59.

Michele Gunderson (27.14), Allison Gilliam (27.49), Hannah Knott (28.11), Debbie Sharp (29.42), McKenzie Shaw (29.45) and Kathy Willis (30.57) added their names to the women’s standings.

In the spring, the three elementary schools host their annual Jumpstart Elementary Track meet to add to their times.

Conklin said these events are all extensions of the D21 elementary physical education programs, and open to all elementary students even beyond our three elementary schools.

“These events are supported by Dry Hollow PTA, Colonel Wright PTO and Jumpstart fund raising events like these trail runs,” Conklin added. “Community sponsors like Devco Mechanical and Casa El Mirador have been solid supporters to these community events and that makes affordability possible for many folks.”
