Friends of Moffat County Education hosts weekend 5K

Before grabbing some grub at the Colorado State Barbecue Championships, some Moffat County residents got up early for a Saturday morning run. More than 80 people participated in the Friends of Moffat County Education Dew Buster 5K Walk/Run and One-Mile Family Fun Run at Loudy-Simpson Park. The race was 3.1 miles. Derek Duran, who crossed the finish line first in a time of 21:07, said it was an excellent day for a run. “It’s a perfect day out here,” Duran said. “This was a good atmosphere, it was a good turnout, so it was fun.” Wyatt Mortenson, 9, was the overall runner-up in the race, finishing in 23:15.
