More than 700 runners, most appearing pretty well recovered from New Year’s Eve, took to Patterson Park for Charm City Run’s annual, and chilly, Resolution Run yesterday.
The 5K raises money for Earl’s Place, a transitional, long-term housing program on East Lombard Street.
Jackson Flowers, 20, of Sparks, won the footrace, posting a time of 16:47 — a 5:25-mile pace. Melissa Majumdar, 28, of Baltimore, was the top female finisher, posting a time of 19:20 — or a 6:14-mile pace.
Participants ranged from elementary-aged kids to seniors, including 81-year-old George Yannakakis, of Sparks, who ran a remarkable 28:02. The complete results can be found here. The event also included a 1-mile walk.
Overall, 287 males competed in the 5K and 451 women.
Hmmm. Wonder which gender better held the imbibing in check on New Year’s Eve?
