Duluth’s Scott Behling and Chelsey Youngberg win the Fitgers 5k
It might have been raining, cold, and wet but that didn’t stop Northlanders from lacing up the tennis shoes and heading down to the Fitgers 5k on Saturday.
Which was back to the full capacity and had over 800 runners compete in the event.
"I mean, I think the weather proves that, right? I mean, anybody who’s out here today, you know, it’s really motivated to to be here and to finish this race and be part of it. So I think that’s what separates Duluth from a lot of different communities because a lot of other areas might have just packed it in, whether it be the organizers are the runners," said race organizer Zach Schneider.
Duluth’s Scott Behling and Chelsey Youngberg were the men’s and women’s winners of the race.
Behling finished with a time of 16:03, marking his fourth race victory, and his first since the 2019 event.
For Yougberg this was her first time as a Fitger’s 5k winner. She Finished with a time of 19:30, nearly two minutes ahead of the second place finisher Elaine Nelson.
