Forty-nine people participated in the 2010 Top of the State Walk/Run July 17 in Weed.
Craig Sewell won the five mile in 36.4 over Weed High School distance runner Tyler Moser (38.25). Sewell said he still has more training to do because he is preparing for the Ironman in Penticton, British Columbia in August.

Of the Top of the State Run, Sewell said, “Great course. It was well marked again like in previous years.” He said he has run it the last four or five years. “I like supporting local events. It’s great for the community. It’s small, but it brings the local runners out.”

Other category winners were: Jilinda Franklin in the women’s 5 mile, Cory Coppin in the men’s 2 mile, Carin Bell in the women’s 2 mile and Michael Cook in the youth race.
