Thirty "Mighty Milers" from Cockeysville's Rec Council ran to the finish line, winning first and third place in the Female Division. They were respectively Emily Wayson and Ashlin Teague. Thirty "Girl Power" members of West Towson and Riderwood elementary schools rocked, sporting wild looking socks and equally colorful shoes, as they dashed to the end, many of them accompanying Ridge Ruxton participants. Greg Lyons of Parkville was first to cross the finish line, winning the gold medal in the Male Division. Second was John Weaver of West Towson, and third was Zenden Cole of Parkville. Sarah Getsay of Butler, PA won the silver medal for placing second in the Female Division. ACTC volunteer Dain Davis of Idlewylde strode to first among the walkers.
