We had our 8th annual Moose on the Loose July Fun Run/Walk. There were about 45 participants. Winner of the 5K Run was Tyler Shaver from Chicago at a time of 20:45. He said he came to Anamoose because he heard about our moose wedding in the Chicago paper, but I think he came to see Whitney Buchholz, Bismarck, who won the woman’s 5K. Whitney’s mother, Tami, took 2nd place, & sister, Sidney, took 3rd place. Her grandparents, Dorothy & Vernon Kesler, took part in the 5K walk.
Second place winner in the 5K was Alex Holen from McClusky with a time of 21:29. Third place winner was Scott Holen, Alex’s dad. Scott told me to say “Alex’s old man was 1/2 minute behind & next year will catch him”.
Winners of the 1 mile run were: Men-Clay Bachmeier, Fargo; Women-Mackenna Bachmeier, Fargo
There were more relatives taking part.. Some that I know of were my granddaughter Honor, & her mother, Jeanne Prom, who took 1st & 2nd place in the 5K walk. Kathy Selzler & her 2 granddaughters participated. Kathy run the 5K Run, walked the 5K walk with me (we came in 9th & 10th), and run the 1 mile (I walked). In May Kathy took part in the 13 mile Fargo 1/2 marathon where there were 13,000 registered runners. Wow!
All participants & helpers got a bright yellow t-shirt (Tyler has his on) that was designed by Pam Heim, organizer of the event. Proceeds from the run go to the Anamoose Fire Dept.
