The 4th annual Cove to Clover [1] Fundraiser Run (we’re a Sponsor) happened under dry but on-the-brink of stormy conditions Sunday afternoon (March 11), with over 1,500 registered runners, setting a new record.

The weather went from mild to wild though, and by the time most reached the finish line it was cold enough to molt a snake.

Winner of the 10K for Men was Ryan Prentice, 21, of Normandy Park; his Dad, Ray Prentice, 52, came in 4th (beat ya Dad!).

Winner of the 10K for Women was Sandi Rowden, 47, of Burien.

Winner of the 5K for Men was Angelo Baca, 32, who won the Brat Trot 5K last Fall (read our coverage here [2]).

Winner of the 5K for Women was Thais Pedro, 15, of Burien.

The oldest runners were Clyde Sparks, 76, and Betsy Backstrom, 62, both from Normandy Park,
