PRIEST RIVER — Since 1995, the Run for the Berries has brought runners and walkers to compete for top honors along a scenic route in Priest River. This year was no different, with 168 participants competing in three distances, said race director Lance Clark. The July 29 run gave 1 mile, 5 kilometer, and 5 mile options to entrants, with awards for the top three finishers in each distance and age category. Clark said that 82 participated in the 1-mile run, 50 in the 5-miler, and 36 in the 5k.

Cameron Parkes was the top male in the 5k with a time of 18:16. Parkes competes for Priest River Lamanna High School’s cross country team, which showed up in force at the Run for the Berries. Jordan Young won first among the ladies in the 5k with a time of 23:38. Emily Hammons won first overall female in the 5 mile race with a time of 33:49, averaging 6:46 per mile over the five-mile course. The men’s overall winner in the 5 mile race was Trevor Martin at 28:46, or nearly 5:45 per mile. Jack Moller’s 4:49 one-mile run earned him the top men’s spot in the 1 mile race, while Bailey Wernica’s 6:03 earned her first place amongst women.
