Under gorgeous sunny skies, 49-year old Burien native Mike Fosberg won the 2013 Brat Trot 5K race with a time of 18:37 Sunday afternoon, Oct. 6.

Fosberg has served as Principal of both Highline High School as well as Marvista Elementary School.

Second place finisher was 53-year old Brian Sepal, and third was the shirtless Matt Parker, 34.

Top female finisher was 12-year old Haley Jacobson with a time of 21:05; second was Sandi Rowden, 48 and third was Jessica Howisey, 34.

One interesting observation – in our history of Sponsoring this race, we believe this year’s finishers comprise both the oldest (49, 53) and youngest winners (12) ever!

Some other notable finishers:

  • OLDEST MAN: Clyde Sparks, 78
  • OLDEST WOMAN: Lynn Luther, 74
  • LAST PLACE: Kathy Reed, 67 (she proudly told this to us after the race!)

Over 1,500 participated in the local fundraiser event, which celebrated its fifth anniversary.

Here’s the list of Top 10 finishers:

  1. Mike Fosberg, 49, 18:37
  2. Brian Sepal, 53, 18:56

    This was my 3rd Brat Trot, and as usual a great one! I hope the gentleman near the finish who was being tended to by the medics is okay.
