Forty-four runners and three dogs came out Saturday morning to compete in the annual Cherry Days 5K Run/Walk and to support the Paonia High School cross country program.

Runners ranged in age from 9-77.

Caden Meilner, 18, was the overall winner. This was the first Cherry Days win for Meilner, a member of the cross country team.

Brooke Hillman was the overall female winner and placed fifth overall in the event.

Perennial participant Leah Morris won the 40-49 division. Dressed in pink and white chevron pattern leggings, a black skirt, sparkling tank top and pink evening gloves, Morris also won the Best Costume award.

Proceeds from the race benefit the Paonia High School cross country program and will help pay for entry fees and travel costs for state competition, said assistant coach Shauna Meilner.

Commemorative T-shirts in a variety of colors are still available by calling 970-778-8539 or messaging Shauna Meilner on Facebook.
