For the females, Flannery Cerbin-Bohach a 36-year-old from Cresco, Iowa, was a first time finisher with a time of 18 minutes even.

“I have spectated Grandma events before but never raced so this was my first time doing the 5k. I want to maximize my speed while I still have it and then once I start to lose Seed off I’ll go up in distance,” said Cerbin-Bohach.
