  • The costume run sponsored Saturday by Lourdes Central Catholic Student Council gave its decorated runners some steep challenges.
    The 5K route included crossing North Table Creek at the Sixth Street bridge and climbing the hill to Greggsport Park.
    Runners descended into the wooded Riverview Park where they were confronted by a sign that read, “It's a hill, get over it.”
    “The true test was the hill in the park. That was just cruel and unusual punishment,” said Laurence DuBois, who ran with his daughter Madeline.
    “It was a good, challenging course,” said Jim Thurman. “It's not a course where you'll set a personal best because there are some good hills.”
    Thurman led the run for most of the way, but high school senior Eric Box finished first with a time of 21.36.
    “It was a good time for me. There were a lot of big hills,” he said.
    Kelley Houfek and George Ann Houfek of Murray, who ran dressed as the breast cancer bandits, said the scenery was beautiful.
    “It was very pretty,” said George Ann. “We would definitely do it again,” Kelley said.
    Top finishing youth were James Kearney and Aubrey Thurman. Best costumes were Tanya Lee as Catwoman and Branden Bender as the red man.
