Joe Waldron, Monika Brack,00',n win April Fool's Run at Cape How much longer???, How much to go?. Where's the finish line??? Those were a few of the words shouted at me as I rode the lead bike past the turn-a-round point and headed toward the finish. The race was last weekend's third annual April Fools Day run & walk that was held at Cape Henlopen State Park. Being that it was April Fools Day, the crowd of 110 was told that the course was between 2 and 4 miles, with a wa- ter stop located between the start and finish. I also announced that they would encounter surfaces of road, grass, sand, trail, bike path and a beautiful view toward the end of the course. "But what about our mile split???" one runner shouted. "The miles are not marked to- day, but there are several of them," I answered. "Good luck and happy April Fools Day!" For- mer Dixie Darling and Seashore Strider parent Terri Morris was then cleared to fire the starting gun. The outcome was Joe Waldron pulling away from last year's champion Glenn Kemp on his way up the quarter mile surprise incline to the great dune lookout point and hanging 9n for the 3.48m victory. Several partici- pants in the race found it a sur- prise that Lewes now has a decent incline in the town. "How much farther??? I got a bad cramp," the 25 year old Waldron shouted at me just past the 3 mile mark. Waldron, out of Ocean City, Md., was timed in 19:44, while second place went to Reuben Beauchamp who won the Male Masters Title in 19:58. Monika Bracken won the Over- all Female Title by finishing 13th in a time of 22:19, while young 12 year old Brittany Morris was sec- ond in 24:54. led Myers, of Parkesburg, PA., picked up where she left off last season by winning the Female Master Title in a time of 25:44. This race is held every year for the "too serious runners" that are addicted to their race time. The Seashore Striders host events all year long, but the idea is ta get people out running, walk- ing, and enjoying fitness, because this particular sport is not too fun if you can't have fun doing it. The April Fools Day event is held for those who just want to run for the fun of it.
