Running: Run for Her Life returns for its second year

By The Staff

Alexander Romero won his second consecutive Run for Her Life 5-kilometer race Sunday.
Romero was the top men’s finisher on the 5K course with his time of 19 minutes, 55 seconds.
Run for Her Life, in its second year, is a fundraising event hosted by the local chapter of Hadassah. Proceeds from the 5K and 10K trail runs go to support research in the field of breast cancer.
The event was held on the Mesa Trail near East Park.
Romero nipped his older brother Nathan by four seconds to win the men’s 5K event. Kelly Sanchez was the women’s top overall finisher in the 5K with her time of 26:24.
In the 10K, Erica Baron easily outdistanced the rest of the field. She finished with a time of 40:30, more than 3-1/2 minutes better than the next-closest finisher, overall men’s champion Ted Romero.
Romero finished the 10K run in 44:08.
