Run Posey a Success Despite Heat

While Run Posey 2012 had 334 registered, only 264 braved the extreme heat and ran or walked the four miles around the lake. They raised over $5,000.00 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation. Ed Altwies won the Men's Overall in 21:43:30 and Sarah Mallow beat her own course record, even in the heat, with a time of 27:17:15. The Posey Lake neighbors really came out to help make sure there were plenty of water stations and braved the conditions themselves, standing in the sun spraying down runners with hoses and sprinklers. Hudson area sponsors included C.R.Motors, Ten Pin Pizza and Bowling, The Hudson Cinema Plaza, The Market House, Pest Patrol, and Friendly Fences. Our primary sponsors are Devil's Lake Water Sports and Running with E's.
