West Virgina standout leads Seaway Festival 4-Mile Trail Run
BY DAVE SHEA
Jack Price ran the Seaway Festival Road Race many times when it was an international event where runners crossed the Ogdensburg-Prescott International Bridge.
Over the years Price hosted his grandchildren at his Camp Road 41 home on the St. Lawrence River.
Over the weekend a group of his grandchildren made the trip from West Virginia to honor Price at a memorial service and remembered him fondly after earning medals in the Seaway Festival 4-Mile Trail Run.
"We spent a lot of summers on the river. It is a great place," said Ryan Miller who placed first in the Men's 30-39 Division on a day when Anya Miller became the first female runner to claim overall honors in the race.
Anya Miller recently graduated from Cabell-Midlands High School where she enjoyed an outstanding running career in cross country and track-field. A career she plans to extend at Davis Elkins College.
"Our high school is triple A which is the largest class in the state. I ran cross country and did the distance races in track. I took fifth in the 800 in states this year and I am looking forward to running at Davis-Elkins which is a Division 2 school," said Miler who jumped out to the head of the feld at the start and cruised to a winning time of 26:39.
Local racer Brett Boismenu took second in 27:50 as the Overall Male medalist from the Men's 50-59 Division. Ryan Miler placed third overall in 28:29 followed by Men's 40-49 leader Scott Brennan in 28:44 and Ogdensburg native Mike Kroll 29:08 who finished second in the Men's 30-39 Division.
The second female finisher was Emma Hurst who is visiting the North Country from Sweden with her husband, Lisbon native MIke Hurst .
