TUMA TAKES HER 2nd SILK 15K; MOHR 1st AMONG MEN

The annual Silk Greenery 15K, a challenging run around the East End, attracted 17 runners on Sunday. Grace Tuma was the first female finisher for the second year in a row, while Andy Mohr finished first among the men.
The rather grueling course began at Silk Greenery in Fort Mylner and continued over Cassi Hill, through Smith Bay, into the National Park and back through Nadir to the start.
Undaunted by the hills and heat, bicyclist-turned-runner Mohr breezed through the nine miles in 1:02. Adam Thill of St. John was a minute behind him at 1:03. Vincent Nunes at 1:05 was the third finisher.
Tuma was the first woman across the finish line in 1:12. Kathie McMurtrie of St John was next at 1:13 ; followed by Jennifer Wentworth who came in at 1:14.
The rest of the finishers are as follows:
Peter Alter 1:09;
Gerald Wentworth 1:13;
Lance Maanum 1:15;
Kevin Lenahan 1:19;
Frank Jackson 1:20;
Mac Davis 1:25;
Mike Greaves 1:31;
Bernadette Kreisal 1:32;
Karen Rice 1:48;
Jane DiCola 1:49.
For years this course has been known as the "country loop" to runners, but as the East End becomes more congested this loop is on busy roads. St Thomas runners and drivers should take extra caution and consideration of each other in these narrow areas.
