Perfect weather and a solid turnout made for another successful iteration of the July 4 Kollas-Cranmer Memorial Run — celebrating its 42nd running.
Top honors for the 7.41-mile road race from downtown Odell to Hood River’s Jackson Park went to Forest Tarbath, who was first overall and the first male finisher, completing the course in 39 minutes, 39 seconds, running in the post-high school to age 29 category. He was over a minute ahead of second-place finisher Dusty Lopez (40:42, 30-39) and nearly three minutes ahead of third-place finisher Oscar Bauman (42:27, 40-49). Top female finisher was Hannah Allen (47:30, post-high school to 29), followed by Emma Tarbath (47:31, post-high school to 29), and Zooy Freebain (50:20, post-high school to 29).
Race Director Mary Gumm said attendance was slightly up this year, with 108 registered walkers and 272 runners, compared to 2016’s tally of 99 and 269, respectively. She said only one record fell this year: Susan Poor, running in the women 60-69 category, ran a 1:03:39, smashing the previous record of 1:14:14 set by Mary Feingold in 2002.
Gumm wanted to thank the Hood River Valley High School wrestling team, H2Oregon, the Hood River County Sheriff’s Department, and the City of Hood River for helping out with the event.
