Austin Smith Claims Win in Antique Fair 5k Run

AND THEY’RE OFF - Runners take off at the start of the Scotland County Antique Fair 5K run, leaving the west side of the Memphis city square early Saturday morning.

The Scotland County Antique Fair creates plenty of hustle and bustle on the Memphis city square so it's only fitting that the event's big day kicks off with a 5K fun run and walk as well as 1.5 mile leisure walk.

The event, sponsored by Scotland County Hospital, once again drew a larger group of runners and walkers to the square on Saturday morning. Participants opened the race on the west side of the square and returned to the same point after completing the road course across town.

Austin Smith was the top performer, crossing the finish line in a time of 21:40. The top female finisher was Bronwen Peternel in a time of 21:51.

Top three awards were handed out in various age groups.

In the male 18 and under category first place went to Zach Curry in 24:16, followed by brother Brady Curry in 25:22. Third place went to Kody Parkins with a time of 26:22.

In the female 18 and under division Anna Monroe crossed the finish line first in 24:28. Maddie Brassfield (27:18) finished second followed by Abi Feeney (28:09).

Brenna Poe claimed the win in the female 19-29 age group in a time of 25:23. Second place went to Shaina Dochterman (27:16), followed by Shelby Westhoff (28:58).

The top three finishers in the male 30-39 division were Michael Browning (22:24), Charles Chadwell (26:55), and Bob Mallett (27:14).

In the female 30-39 class it was Lisa Murguia taking top honors in a time of 24:22 followed by Carrie Hamner in 25:30 and Christy Aylward in 25:49.

John Wheeler (23:26) edged Jeff Davis (24:55) and Mark Wiggins (25:54) for the top time in the men 40-49 age division while it was Trinity Davis taking the checkered flag in the ladies division for the same age group. Her time of 26:34 outdistanced second place finisher Kelly Duppong (33:46) and third place finisher Karri Feeney (37:37).

Linley Lipper turned in one of the better times for the race. clocking in at 22:54 to take top honors in the men's 50 and over class. He was followed by Mike Inman (23:29) and Mark Fryer (26:23).

In the females 50 and over class, Angela Hawes was awarded the win in a time of 27:41. Organizers inadvertently placed the 47-year-old runner in the wrong age division, and corrected the mistake post race. Dani Fromm finished second in a time of 32:46 and Cathy Wiewel was third in a time of 42:35.
