Don’t worry about age (or youth) slowing you down when you run Sacramento’s original age-graded 5 Km race.
The No Excuses 5K, threading through the tree-lined Land Park course, lets you relive your youthful glory on a fast, flat course.
Davis’s Joannie Siegler, 58, ran a 20:20 to beat all comers with an age-graded 14:35. Coming in next, in age-graded times, was last year’s champion Mo Bartley, 60, of Auburn, whose 20:58 age -graded to 14:41.
Finishing third in the age graded race was Sacramento’s Gary Blanco, 47, whose 16:26(!) age-graded to 14:48.
If we look at the non-age-graded times, which we cannot help doing, we see that Garrett Seawell, 23 of Roseville, was the first finisher in a legitimately speedy time of 15:13.
