4th place winner Konner Buxton sprints during his 3rd lap of Saturday’s 5K Clover Run/Walk.

The temperature was 57 degrees at 8a.m. Saturday, when more than 100 people gathered at the Ellis County Fairgrounds for the first-ever 5K Clover Run/Walk fundraiser for Ellis County 4-H.

By race start time, 45 minutes later, the temperature was a little warmer.  The wind, although out of the northwest, was considerably less than the 44-mile-an-hour southwesterly gusts recorded Friday by the National Weather Service.

“The slogan for the run is ‘Promoting Healthy Living in a Family Friendly Environment’ and it’s also part of our 4-H mission,” Arnold said.  “The proceeds go to 4-H Scholarship and Development to help send 4-H members to camp, and for college scholarships.”

Race results will be posted on the Ellis County extension website www.ellis.ksu.edu when they become available.
