Finishing is Winning! If You’re Movin’ You’re Improvin’! These were just some of the many motivational course signs that runners and walkers enjoyed along the 5K route at Burt Morris Park at Saturday’s Memorial Freedom Race sponsored by MMHC and directed and managed by the Adams County Running & Walking Club (ACRC). There were 181 runners and walkers from the ages of 2 to 80 who crossed the finish line on Saturday, July 2, 2016.
Overall awards were given to the top 3 male and female 1 Mile finishers and to the top 3 male and female 5K (3.1 miles) finishers. Every walker and runner who participated in the 5K and 1 Mile Fun Run received a race tee shirt and a commemorative custom finisher’s medal at the finish line. In addition to the finisher medals, age group awards were given to the top 3 finishers from 9 years and younger age group to the eighty to eighty-five year old group. The 1 Mile Fun Run is offered to encourage families with small children to participate and promote children to be active.

Prior to the event, Don Heinz, CEO of Moundview Memorial Hospital & Clinics, welcomed participants and Sandy Ties sang the National Anthem to runners and walkers who came from Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota, Idaho and Kansas. The race course was an out-and-back route which took runners and walkers down Park Street to Juneau, and then to State Street, which was the halfway mark. At this point a water station was manned by Coach Mike Gain. Sheriff Sam Wollin escorted the 5K field on the course in his squad car. City of Adams police cruisers were present at course turns and Waushara County EMS was on hand at the start/finish line. Mike Brogan and was the 5K “sweep”, staying at the back of the field to ensure all participants arrived at the finish line where water and chocolate milk, fresh fruit, cheese, chocolate chip cookies, peanuts and granola bars were waiting for the race finishers.
Both the 5K and the 1 Mile Fun Run were chip-timed events, where each participant wore a bib number containing a personal “chip”, so that their finishing time was electronically recorded when crossing the finish line.
