Thank you for joining us at Chill on the Hill for the Humboldt Hustle 5K!
We appreciated everyone who came out to enjoy a run through beautiful Humboldt Park. The weather was a little warmer than expected but the park provided plenty of shade to help out the runners on their 5k journey! All proceeds from the event will be donated to the Bay View Neighborhood Association so that wonderful events like Chill on the Hill can continue in the future. After the run, the participants joined the other visitors at the park to enjoy a drink, food and great live music.
Special thank you to the many volunteers that helped out at the water station, street crossings and overall run support to make sure runners didn’t get lost, were safe and remained hydrated.
Congratulations to the overall race winner Chris Larson who finished with a spectacular time of 19 minutes 30 seconds! Chris definitely earned the plate of food he picked up after the race!
Congratulations to our first female finisher, Liz Poeschl. Liz finished with a time of 21 minutes 27 seconds.
Special shout out to the Couch to 5k Team from Wild. Many of the participants were new to running or had not done so in a long time. The program started 8 weeks ago with the aim of getting everyone ready to complete the Humboldt Hustle 5K. Everyone on the team finished and did a great job. Thanks Coach Carla!
Below are the race results for the top 50 participants:
