After the postponement of the Morrow County Community Center’s Sweetcorn 5K Run two weeks ago, the race was lucky to have a perfect, sunny morning with a light breeze and 65 degree temperature last Saturday.

Northmor High School’s Mostyn Evans came in first at the Sweetcorn 5K in 18:50. He also won last year’s Sweetcorn 5K at 20:17. Evans said his goal was to show improvement over last year’s time and to be under 20 minutes. Mount Gilead runner Emily Hanft came in first for the women and second overall at 23:03. Hanft shaved three minutes off her time last year of 26:12.

Proceeds from the event sponsors will go to support youth scholarships and programs at the Morrow County Community Center. Sweetcorn 5K Sponsors included: Gold Sponsors; Lubrication Specialties, Inc., Morrow County Hospital and Sage Chiropractic/ Dr. Mark Zader. Silver Sponsors were Griffith and Brininger/Attorneys at Law, and Morrow County Family Health Center. Bronze Sponsors included: Gardens and Gifts, Grill & Chill and Hoffman Office Supply.
