Last Sunday’s Outlet Liquors 5K featured 20 runners under 20 minutes, including seven under 20 years old and three women. The race was won by 15-year-old Matt Wisner from the Thundering Herd of Carlisle High School in the 717 in a time of 17:57, slow by summer standards, but don’t tell the 377 runners he beat to the finish line.
Jason Tripp, 41, was second and masters champion in 18:20 followed by Joey Andrisani, 30, in 18:25; Sam Mackenzie, 30, in 18:33; and Connor McNamara, 16, in 18:38.
A portion of the proceeds from the race went to the Dewey Beach Patrol. John Zacharias, 18:43, and Ryan Cannon, 19:12, were the top Dewey lifeguards.
Natalie Mackenzie, 31, was the first woman in 18:49 followed by Tara Cavaselis in 19:37 and Caroline Pennacchio in 19:41.
Tiffany Lang, 19, at 20:10 outsprinted her mother Vicki Lang, 44, who ran 20:45 to capture the masters title.
An impressive time was run by age-group winner Bonnie McCloe, 72, in 26:49.
Jack Wisner, 12, little brother of Matt the winner, ran 21:37.
Jules Woodall, 65, who actually had a grandson born during the race, ran 25:33 to win his age group. Jules has run in 93 consecutive 10 Sisters races or has 93 grandchildren; he was confused which stat was accurate.
Doug White, 70, won his age group in 25:23, but Gene King, 70, ran 26:10 and has his sights set on reeling in the Hall of Fame runner.
