Ole Man River Half-Marathon & 5K

29th Annual Ole Man River Race Results

Sunday, December 19, 2010, 8:00 AM
Tad Gormley Stadium, City Park, New Orleans, LA
Race Director: Chuck George, New Orleans Track Club

A great day weather-wise for a half-marathon and a fast USATF-certified course made for near course record finish times. Kevin Castille from Lafayette, the defending champion, battled with Craig Leon, the track and cross country coach at Ohio University throughout the course. (Craig was in town to watch Ohio University play in the R&L Carriers Bowl Game.) Castille outsprinted Leon in the last 100 yards as both entered Tad Gormley Stadium at a fast clip. Winning time for Castille at 1:07:12 and Leon's 2nd place finish time of 1:07:13 are the 2nd and 3rd fastest times recorded in the events 29 year history. Matt Manning, the winner of the recent Jazz Half-Marathon and the Gulf Coast Half-Marathon in Mandeville came in third with a PR time of 1:10:57.

Stephanie Kalozdi led an equally impressive women's field at 1:24:49, followed by Charlotte Everhardt and Carolyn Thompson at 1:27:33 and 1:27:38.

Over 1160 entered the two races. The Kenner Rotary Club did a fantastic job with the post race pancake breakfast. Proceeds benefit the Wheelchair Foundation and the Kenner food bank.
