Kids' Mile and Fun Runs

2016 8K & 5K races

The 2016 200m and 400m runs were enjoyed by almost 60 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!


We also had over almost 70 mile runners, headlined by our winners:

8-under girls winner Ellyson Hoffman (8:45)

8-under boys winner Aden Bakker (7:30)

9-10 girls winner Alexandra Buck (7:06)

9-10 boys winner Brendan Bakker (6:44)

11-15 girls winner Eliza Kautz (7:40)

11-15 boys winner Paiden Nicks (7:10). 

The 2016 Growl Prowl enjoyed mild temperatures, a nice change from the cold, wind and rain during the 2015 race.  The almost 300 participants and 50 volunteers enjoyed another successful Growl Prowl.  Highlights include... 

Overall 5K male winner Nathan Hopp (15:29) *new Growl Prowl record*
