For the third year, hundreds of eager runners arrived Saturday, Feb. 1 at Flowers Hospital to run in Southeast Alabama Community Foundation’s Half Marathon & 5K.

Sean Kent, of Dothan, won the half marathon with a time of 1:20:27 for the top male finisher. Sean won the first year in 2012 and also participated last year.

“I was more comfortable and prepared this year than last year,” said Sean. “Coming through the last mile is hard, but I just kept pushing.”

Amberly Glitz was also a repeat winner (2013) for female half marathon with a time of 1:37:52.

“It felt good to come back again this year. This is the fifth half marathon I have done,” said Glitz.

5K winners were Julio Garcia (male) at 20:37 and Missy Sexton (female) at 22:02.

All proceeds which exceed more than $20,000 go toward SACF’s annual grantmaking to Wiregrass nonprofits.

Post-race festivities included complimentary massages for runners by Massage Envy, food by Fatback’s of Dothan, drinks from Buffalo Rock and Adams Beverages, and music by DJ Sizzle.

Flowers Hospital was lead sponsor of the event.

SACF is an affiliate of the Central Alabama Community Foundation.
