The 5th Annual

Deer Park 5K/5 Mile Run/Walk of 2011

July 2, 2011

Runners ready
Deer Park runners are ready once again in 2011 for a 5k or 5 mile run/walk, July 2, 2011.

After a hiatus of a year, the Deer Park 5K/ 5 Mile Run/Walk comes back to life larger than ever with 78 participants. This year the race was a benefit for the adaption of Ilya and also featured a 5 mile race with 12 participants. The race organizers were once again Joe and Ilisa Ailts of Deer Park.

Twins Winners
The 5 mile winners Tony Meyers and twin sister Heather (Meyers) Wimer.

The 5 mile winners were the Meyers Twins of the Dresser-St. Croix Falls area. Tony Meyers ran the 5 mile race in 27:13 the overall winner. His twin sister, Heather (Meyers) Wimer ran the 5 miles in 34:19, the overall women's winner. Heather remarked that she ran the race 7 minutes slower and was born 7 minutes behind her brother Tony.

If Tony had been running the 5K, his time would have been just under 17 minutes, and Heather's 5K time would have been about 21:19.

The race day on Saturday morning was close to ideal with clear skies, calm winds and temperatures around 70 degrees.

5 K winner
Nick Sokolowski in the 13-19 year class comes in first overall wrapping up the 5K run in 19:17.
5k Women's Winner
Kathryn Grinnell, in the 20-29 year class, is the overall female winner running the 5K in 31:54.

The walkers of the Deer Park Run/Walk finish the race too. It just takes a bit longer but it still is fun.
Gabby Lubich, in the 50-59 year category, turns in an impressive performance running 5K in 20:20.


The video is 7 minutes 55 seconds long. Due to an adverse lighting condition the 5 mile runner arrivals were not recorded.
