Race report and results contributed by SERJ Racing Services

While the temperature was in the teens, the first race of the year brought out a nice-sized group of hearty participants for the annual Frosty Five race hosted by the Westmoreland County Community College. Obviously, many people decided to get started on their racing and training as nearly 200 signed up for this event.

While it may have been cold, the wind was light and the sun was shining, giving the look more of a spring morning than of winter. It looked warmer though than it really was.

Brian Suter was the overall male winner with a time of 18:22. Second place finisher was Jesse Irwin at 18:51 and Joe Bierhals was third 18:55.

The women's race was closer as Rachel Sackson edged Amanda Rubis 20:23 to 20:28. Heidi Austin was third 22:45.

Mary Beth Hassan was the woman's walk winner at 36:00 and Jeff Davis won the men's division with a time of 33:31.

Rachel Sackson also was the first Westmoreland County Community College student.
