The registration for the Howard County Striders Turkey Trot 10k started promptly at 9:00 am on Thanksgiving Day. Without the benefit of any timing devices, the competitors attempted to run the appointed 10K course through the Jeffers Hill and Long Reach communities so as to finish at exactly 11:00 a.m. the winner being the runner who finished closest to the hour. Even if you did not win you still received a Dunkin Donut with cider or orange juice. The problem was that there were 216 donuts (18 dozen) and 349 finishers.
Some people began as soon as 9:05 a.m., which translates to a ridiculously slow pace even if they are walking. Suspicions arose that many were leaving early so that they would return in time to get a donut. “No, really, I have to be in Virginia later this morning,” Pat Huffman said when she left at 9:15 a.m. Statistics, however, do not lie: 268 finished before 11:00 a.m. and only 81 finished afterwards. And the last person to finish (11:14:51 a.m.), Richard Rosen, had a ready excuse for not coming in sooner: “I thought it was 8K.”
Ultramarathoner Rick Schofield proved to be the most accurate runner of the morning, finishing within 3.56 seconds of 11:00 a.m. “I learned how to pace myself by running the Stone Mill 50 Miler last weekend,” Rick confided. One suspects he was too tired from Stone Mill to keep up with the McIntyres and Wilsons, who flashed past him in the last half mile. “It took discipline on my part,” Schofield added. “I thought finishing Stone Mill was my greatest running experience, but it was nothing compared to this.” Rick earned a gift certificate and the coveted Brass Turkey (actually, a plastic turkey with gold-colored paint).
Len Guralnick, former president of the Howard County Striders, directed the event, which has been held every Thanksgiving since 1981 or 1982. Only three people have run all the Turkey Trots: Joanna Whyte, Dick Woods, and Jerry Warfield, who actually lives on the course and regularly trains on it to improve his accuracy. (He finished at 10:57:55 a.m.) Whyte lives in California and travels back east every year for the Turkey Trot.
After paying for all the donuts, the benefits from the Turkey Trot benefit the Dave Tripp Scholarship Fund for high-school scholar athletes in Howard County.

For 17 years, the Run Through the Grapevine 8K course at Linganore Winery was actually a little short, so this year an extra hill was added around another grapevine to satisfy a more exact measurement. The unofficial story for the route change, though, was that Mark Buschman vowed to beat the best time of Pekka Stenholm, a former racing team member who had moved back to his native Finland. Buschman and Stenholm had met at the Berlin Marathon earlier in the year and must have had a discussion about the Grapevine. Race director Jason Tripp decided the course should be as accurate as possible, so a course extension occurred, and Buschman failed by 20 seconds to beat the time (about 30:30). Everyone else reported slower times at the Grapevine 8K this year, too.
Race winner Carlos Renjifo far in front of the field.
The extra 0.2-mile did not bother Carlos Renjifo, who won the race by more than 1:30, the largest margin by which anyone had ever won the race (29:07). Carlos led the field for essentially the entire race; although he inexplicably went off course twice. Once, he took second place Andrew Revelle off course with him and third-place Mike Colaiacovo shouted to them to turn left rather than right. They quickly corrected themselves and resumed the competition. “I thought I could run in 27 or 28 [minutes] but I couldn’t,” Carlos said, not realizing the extra mileage had its effect. Still, he was the only runner in the field to break half an hour on the treacherously hilly course.
The women’s race was a much closer affair than the men’s. Initially, Howard County’s Rian Landers-Ramos assumed the lead, but then Jill Krebs took the lead after emerging from the second set of grapevines. Jill and her teammate Sherry Stick battled “back and forth through the woods.” Jill then took “a weird step” at four miles and Sherry was on her. “I could see she had her game face on,” Jill said. “I knew it was all over.” A perennial winner, Sherry hung on to win by 12 seconds (35:03).
Showing her game face, Sherry Stick leads Jill Krebs out of the woods.
Elkridge’s Donna Wecker out sprinted Jane Wickman of Germantown to claim the award as top master-woman (41:25). Although Donna regularly runs trails, she had never run Grapevine before and was not prepared for the steep hills and ankle-twisting grass. “The hills were brutal,” she said, “and there were so many of them.” Donna turns 50 in a few weeks and will then begin to terrorize the grandmaster women.
The top master man was Mike Colaiacovo, who finished third overall (30:53) and earned an overall award. The next fastest master was grandmaster Keith McIntyre (34:03). Keith’s stunning performance was blunted only by his son Conner’s beating him.
The Run Through the Grapevine featured a plethora of team competitions. The Howard County Strider Men’s team, with Renjifo, Revelle, Buschman, and Colaiacovo crushed the opposition to win the overall men’s team competition with a perfect score of 10 points. The Baltimore-Washington Athletic Club consisted of Stick and Krebs with their old pal Diana Pool and new-comer Joan Namasinga had a nearly perfect score of 13 in winning the women’s team competition. Put together by Steve Anderson, the OMG men’s masters team won a prize for the seventh year in a row (although it was only men’s masters team). There was no prize for the best team name, but some of the outstanding samples were “Mac Attack” (the McIntyre family) and “Merlot is how we roll” (Ken Miller, Jeanine Rogers, and Laura and Ryan Guenin).
The 18th Annual and Newly-Recalibrated Run Through the Grapevine took place at the Linganore Winery in Carroll County on November 11. The race is staged each year by the Howard County Striders, who wish to thank the winery owner Anthony Aellen for the use of his grapevines and hills. Jason Tripp directed. Award winners received gift certificates for bottles of wine, which they could redeem immediately after the race. The weather was so nice this year that many stayed after the race to enjoy wine and lunch under pleasant autumn skies.
The race sold out two weeks before with a total of 650 registrants. Of these, 573 actually showed up and ran the race. “Not a record, but close,” said official scorer Jim DiSciullo.

Not often does a 47-year-old woman win a large format race such as Clyde’s 10K, but that is exactly what Robyn Humphrey did last Sunday, April 17, 2011. The Howard County Striders Master Runner of 2010 led from start to finish and fulfilled a lifelong dream of winning the race.
“It was on my bucket list,” Robyn said. “And I wasn’t getting younger.”
Still, her victory was not a slam dunk. She faced stiff competition from Unsong Ostrowski and Suzy Serpico.
“Suzy was breathing down my neck for a while.” Apparently, though, digestive issues obliged Serpico to check her speed and gave Humphrey a chance to win. Robyn’s time of 40:09 was two minutes faster than last year.
“I also want to thank all the runners who chose to run the Boston Marathon and the Pike’s Peek 10K,” Robyn said, referring to races where her potential competition went.
In the men’s competition, Carlos Renjifo won the race for the second year in a row. He had little competition and, like Humphrey, led from start to finish.
“I was trying to keep up a hard effort,” Renjifo said, “and focus on my time.”
The strong wind gave him some trouble holding that pace, especially on that long uphill on Route 108. “I kept looking at my watch. It didn’t quite work out.” He finished in 33:18 in spite of the wind.
The real battle in the men’s race was for second place. Masters runner Peter Keating bolted from the start as if he was trying to beat Renjifo and managed to hold on to second place for at least two miles. At that point, Karsten Brown asserted himself and took over sole possession of second place, where he eventually finished as distant second to Renjifo.
“I may have finished the race second,” Karsten said, “But I got to the beer before anyone else.” Brown’s time of 34:18 was only 18 seconds from a personal best.
The second woman older than 40 to finish was also the first woman older than 50. She won the prize for first masters woman. Grandmaster Pat Wilkerson nailed a 42:21. She finished immediately behind 12-year-old sensation Avery Cunningham, who placed fourth overall in 2010.
“Yep, she’s a great runner,” Pat said with a smile. The first master male was Keating, but because he finished third overall, the male masters award devolved to Matt Reinhardt from Crownsville.
The 33rd Annual Clyde’s 10K took place on a chilly, breezy morning the day after torrential rains had swept through Columbia. Nearly 1500 registered for the event, with 1299 finished. Afterward, Clyde’s of Columbia furnished the runners with a sumptuous brunch that included pasta, turkey chili, yogurt, bagels, fresh California strawberries, and that beer. The beer was served only to adults.
Clyde’s also provided interesting prizes. In addition to gift certificates from Feet First of Hickory Ridge, the top three men and women received a beach cooler with a beach blanket, a water bottle, a Clyde’s hat, and various other beach necessities. Age group winners got the cooler and/or the blanket.
The Howard County Striders have staged this race for Clyde’s since 1979, making it the oldest continuously sponsored race in Maryland. In spite of competing with Pike’s Peek 10K (Rockville) and the Boston Marathon, the race enjoyed one of its largest fields ever. Dennis Albright directed the race, with the assistance of dozens of Strider volunteers and traffic control by the Howard County Police.

Last year Dave Berdan won the Annual 10 Mile Challenge in an amazingly fast time of 51:43. At this year’s race, Ryan McGrath, captain of the Falls Road Running team offered a bonus of $100 to his teammate Alexander Battaglino if he could better that time. Having every intention of collecting, Battaglino bolted from the start and immediately assumed a commanding lead.
“He went out so fast that we thought he’d fade and we’d reel him in,” said Carlos Renjifo, captain of the Howard County Strider/Feet First racing team.
Battaglino (left in photo by Doug Hawkland) kept a relentless pace, however, and slowed down only slightly in the hilly section of the course around six miles. “I never looked back,” he said, “so I really didn’t know how far ahead I was.” He finished nearly two minutes ahead of Matt Barresi in second place. Battaglino clocked 51:34 – nine seconds ahead of Berdan’s time— so he earned his bonus.
Falls Road may have claimed the top finisher, but they placed only six in the top 20 finishers, while the home team from Howard County placed seven in the top 20. This was enough for the locals to win the men’s team trophy. The top 12 men scored, with the next 80 serving as “displacers.”
Howard County’s Kara Waters (below in photo by Jim Carbary) won the woman’s race in 1:01:55 by a margin similar to that of Battaglino. She ran the race as an independent last year, but signed on with the Striders this year and ran several minutes faster, mostly competing against the men. “There were some good hills,” Kara said about the course. Her time and margin of victory were all the more amazing since she had just finished the Rock ‘n Roll Marathon (Arizona) a month ago in 2:52:31. She plans to improve her time by doing some speed work in the near future.
Kara’s valiant effort was not enough for the Strider women to beat back the women’s team from Falls Road. Led by Denise Knickman, the Falls Road women collected the next five places behind Waters and swept to a resounding victory in the women’s team challenge. “It was the best race I’ve had in a while,” Knickman said. The top six women on a team scored.
The mixed or coed team victory was decided by a scoring system as complicated as the NFL’s tie-breaker rules. Fortunately, the scoring was handled by a computer, which eventually determined that the men and women of Falls Road had also won the mixed team championship. By dint of its two team victories, Falls Road also took the overall championship. They retained the ancient trophy, which dates to 1980. Battaglino and Waters also took home trophies for their individual victories. The men, women’s, and mixed teams received trophies. But there were no more awards, since this was purely a team challenge race. All finishers did receive the trademark painter’s gloves.
The race was directed by Richard Bernstein, who received support from dozens of Howard County Strider volunteers and the Boy Scouts. The Howard County police not only provided traffic control, they also gave Battaglino a motorcycle escort all through his 10-mile jaunt. The Striders also wish to thank Steve Musselman and the Howard Community college, which served as the venue for the race and allowed use of its gymnasium for post-race ceremonies.
Ten complete teams from all over central Maryland and the District of Columbia competed in the 10 Mile Challenge, which is an official RRCA Championship race. The Challenge race also represents the first race in the Maryland RRCA Grand Prix Championship series. Although 800 signed up for the race, only 564 finished. The registration of the 800 individuals marked the largest field ever for the 10 Mile Challenge and the first time the event ever closed out.
