We set a new record this year with 591 overall registrations, including "Survivor:Philippines" winner and Westfield Elementary parent Denise Stapley. The women's 5K record was broken by Oak Ridge 8th grader Deanna Newhouse, who ran in 20:31. The women's 8K record was shattered by Iowa Class 4A Cross Country Champion Stephanie Jenks, who ran in 30:08. Jenks is a 9th grader at Linn-Mar High School.
Despite the cold and windy conditions, the 2013 Growl Prowl was highlighted by 335 5K / 8K finishers. We appreciate all the support from the community. Congratulations to all the runners!
The 2013 200m and 400m runs were enjoyed by almost 100 children, includng dozens from Linn-Mar elementary school running clubs. We would like to thank all the families that came out to Linn-Mar Stadium to support the Growl Prowl!
