3rd annual ocracoke island race best yet
Spring and summer is running time on the Outer Banks. One of the most recent entries into the local running mix is the Ocracoke Island Race, which is a 5K or 10K race which was held last Saturday. Connie Leinbach of the Island Free Press does a great job of recreating the feeling of race day.
“Alfonso “Chito” Guerrero looked like a gazelle as he bounded ahead of the pack to win the 10K portion of the third annual 5K/10K Ocracoke Island race on Saturday. It was his third time winning the race in as many years with a time of 38:40.
Guerrero, 33, hardly looked winded as he and other runners gathered at Gaffer’s Sports Pub where the race registration, awards and after-party were held. The first year of the race was only a 5K, which Guerrero won, and the first time for the 10K last year, Guerrero also won.”
