2016 was another great year for the Gear Western Country Half Marathon. Nearly 300 athletes took to the roads and trails of Long Lake for the fifth running of the event. The half marathon saw Jake Braam cruise to victory in 1:14:39, with Laura Wolles as the fastest female with a time of 1:35:48. Kevin Franck won the 5k in 19:45, and Amber Garry ran 20:35 for third overall and the fastest female time on the day. Afterward, everyone enjoyed pancakes, sausages, chicken sandwiches, and country music as the skillet and coffee mug prizes went to those that earned them. Thanks to everyone for coming out, and thanks to our sponsors Borton Volvo and Lake Community Bank. Full results can be found here.
