Blake Wood celebrated his 50th birthday by winning the Fourth Annual Ruby Ks Yum Run, held Oct. 18.
Wood won with an unadjusted time of 17:16, although he did not need the 2 minute, 16 second adjustment in the age-handicapped race. Wood finished 10 seconds ahead of second-place crosser Hans Hanson. But the comparatively young Hanson dropped to fifth as the older Bill Crooks, Jeff Johnson, and Clay Mosely all topped him after age adjustment.
In the women’s division, Vikki Saga won with an adjusted time of 19:11.
