Five area runners competed in a road race May 29 in Santa Fe.
In the 10-kilometer run Mariam Browne, a former Robertson cross country runner whose parents still live in Las Vegas, took 19th overall and second in her age group with a time of 48:21.
Tony Gallegos, also a former Robertson runner, overcame a leg injury and completed the tough course in a time of 49:55 good enough for 21st place.
Howard Dunbar, 62, finished in an impressive 52:18, good enough for a second place age group finish.
Kathy Gallegos, a West Las Vegas graduate running in her first-ever 10K, finished the course in 1:05:36.
In the 5K Joseph Montaño won in his age group, beating out Austin Salmon from Los Alamos. Montaño is coming off a successful middle school track season.
The five runners are training for the upcoming Fourth of July Memorial Run in Las Vegas. At this year’s run, a reunion is planned for all former Robertson cross country runners who were coached by Leroy and Cathy Chavez. For more information, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
