The 22nd annual Alert Road Race was held on Saturday, June 20.  In spite of dire predictions for rain and lightning, the sun was out and spirits were high!.  Many unsung heroes made the event go smoothly.

Tom Roth graciously brought the timeclock and ran it, as he has for several years.  LuAnn Lund and Sharon Tucker returned as veterans at the registration table. Donna Rundquist, Karen Diller, Delores Grater and Valerie Visser made sure the runners had delicious breakfast options, that were carefully individually packaged to minimize contact.
