The first annual Big Spring Road Race was held Saturday, Oct. 30, at the ball fields in Toby and was an out-and-back course to the Big Spring on scenic back roads.
Even though this race was billed as the toughest 10K in western Pa., runners eagerly showed up to take on the challenge of the course, as this was a benefit race with all proceeds from going to Connor Bobik.
Ben Huey was the top male finisher in 41:28, while Jennifer Tamburlin was the top female finisher in 51:05.
The results are as follows:
