Bun Run fun

HUNTINGTON — More than 400 entrants got their buns in gear Saturday morning to kick off the West Virginia Hot Dog Festival with the Heiner’s Bakery Bun Run 10K/5K.

Much like the hot dogs that were getting set to be consumed in the early afternoon, many of the runners felt a little cooked after the temperature elevated early in the race.

In the end, it was a Shawnee State University tandem taking top honors in the 5K race with Joe Stewart winning the men’s overall with a time of 16:35.5 and Sarah Biehl taking the women’s overall in a time of 18:33.6.

Former Cabell Midland High School and West Virginia Wesleyan College standout Eric Cooper took the men’s 10K title with a time of 35:06.0 while Julia Galloway of Huntington took top honors in the women’s 10K division with a time of 40:51.1.

Stewart, who is from Proctorville, Ohio, said the race adds a unique flavor to his summer training schedule.

“It’s definitely a good race,” Stewart said. “It’s got the West Virginia 5K course and it’s definitely got something going for it.”

Biehl, a Marietta, Ohio, native, said she knew Stewart and a few others at Shawnee State would take part so that added to her comfort level — along with a few unique characteristics about the race.

“I knew it was pretty flat and I know a few people who run it so I decided to come out,” Biehl said. “And it’s the Bun Run, which is pretty cool. I love seeing the weiner dog races, too. They are all running around all over the place. We lead into the actual race when they go.”

In all, there were 401 entrants and 362 runners completing the course, whether it was the 5K or the 10K, which participants could choose from.

In the 10K division, Cooper beat his closest competitor by 50 seconds to earn “Top Dog” honors while Galloway, who took home the West Virginia 5K Championship women’s overall title, added a 10K trophy to her case.

Regardless of whether it was the 5K or 10K division and whether runners were racing or walking the course, Galloway said there is a different feeling when it goes to such a worthy cause.

Proceeds from the race go to the Hoops Family Children’s Hopsital at Cabell Huntington Hospital.

“When you know your money is going somewhere that is really important to the community like the Hoops Family Children’s Hospital, it makes running even better,” Galloway said. “You know your money is going to charity for a good cause.

“We’re helping little children have better facilities and that’s really important around here — especially for families who used to travel to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital.

“Now, they don’t have to travel as far to facilitate their needs.”

The assurance of knowing where the money goes came into a brighter light this week after Charleston officials canceled the Dirty Girl Mud Run when a shuttle company and race producer Human Movement Management had a financial issue, which left nearly 2,500 women without a race.

The situation in Charleston escalated when Dirty Girl sent an email to participants stating that there would be no refunds. The result of that announcement was a class-action lawsuit filed in Kanawha County for participants to get refunds.

As an act of good faith and solidarity, runners who were signed up for the Dirty Girl Mud Run were given a discount if they wanted to sign up for the Bun Run.

The heart of the race and its purpose was captured in the 48th minute when 80-year-old Richard Cielec crossed the finish line simultaneously with 6-year-old Isaac Specht.

It’s not about companies making money. It’s about fitness for people of all ages and helping make the community a better, healthier place.

Make no buns about it, Saturday was a success.
