Congratulations to Mike Jackson and Leah McCollum, our top male and female finishers at the 2017 RUN the FALLS 5K on Saturday, September 30 at Clifty Falls State Park in Madison. In all, we had 181 runners and walkers cross the finish line. Jackson (Nabb, IN) completed the challenging 3.1-mile course in 19:20.9. McCollum (Jeffersonville, IN) posted an impressive time of 22:17.2. In honor of their achievements, both runners received a walking stick from the state park - engraved with the 2017 RUN the FALLS 5K information.

Kathy Kramer (Sunman, IN) was the top overall walker (and female walker) in a time of 35:51.2. Greg Schwartz (Madison, IN) was the first male walker to complete the course in 42:58.4. Participants ranged in age from 5 to 71.
