Ahead of big crowd,

5 Mile champ thankful

OCEANSIDE, Nov. 28, 2013 - Ahead of the biggest crowd (10,000) ever to run the Pacific Marine Credit Union O'side Turkey Trot or any race in North San Diego County, 5 Mile winner Lukas Verzbicas had a lot for which to be thankful.

 

"This is my first big running event and race that I've won since my cycling accident," said Verzbicas, who came back from a devastating accident that left him with an almost completely severed spine, an injury so severe doctors told his family he would never walk again.

 

Verzbicas (No. 58 in the lower left photo, not only has come back to running, but is on track to seriously chase some unique Olympic goals in 2016.

Woman finishes first overall at Surf City 10

HUNTINGTON BEACH, October 27, 2013 - "Beating the guys today was pretty awesome," said Idaho's Bradi Hutchison, a surprising and runaway winner in the Surf City 10K presented by McKenna VW. "But, it was nothing like the challenge of dodging charging moose while training in the remote mountains surrounding Pocatello."

 

Hutchison's startling victory capped an ideal day with cool, overcast conditions for running in Southern California that attracted a crowd of 4,000 participants and 6,000 spectators to the Surf City 10 and continued a 58-year tradition of running in this beach city by featuring a 10-mile, 10K, 5K and kids' races on a flat, fast course on historic Pacific Coast Highway.

 

Hutchison, a 23-year-old former Iowa State runner and pre-med student who was in Southern California to visit her fiancée, won the 10K in 36:35. Not only was it the fastest time in the race, but it was well ahead of runner-up Luis Saldivar of San Bernadino (38:27).

 

The dominating victory by a Hutchison came after an opening 10 Mile Race that was won by hometown runner Stephan Shay. The pre-race favorite, who brought a 1:02:26 best in the half-marathon into the event, ran away from his competition and won in 51:02.

 

Former UCLA distance standout and Beverly Hills runner Katja Goldring won the women's race in 57:39, good enough for 11th overall and a five-minute margin of victory.

 

"Being from Huntington Beach, I've run this stretch many times, so it was pretty much what I expected," said Shay. "It was good. It was pretty much what I expected time wise, also. And, of course, I wanted to come out here and win this race being a local."
