Mountain Man Memorial Marathon
Congratulations to the York JROTC for competing in the Mountain Man Memorial Marathon. This event honors the sacrifices of our American service members and their Gold Star families. The teams competed in a 13.1 mile march and a 26 .2 mile march. The half marathon team completed the march with a time of 3 hours and 56 minutes. The team members were. Sabian Koin, Kendle Owens, Kendall Franklin, Payton Byrd, Blakely Kilby. The 26.2 mile team placed 2nd overall beating several college teams with a time of 6 hours and 51 minutes..This was a huge improvement from last years time of 10 hours and 20 minutes. The team members for the 26 mile team were . Silas Lamb, Thomas Dillard, Austin Pyles, Dylan Dalton, William Weaver. The overall team Captain for both teams was Dylan Smith who would have marched with the 26.2 mile team but sustained a broken leg while conducting Physical training 3 weeks prior to the event. He continued to work with the teams and went to the march to motivate and help with the logistical support for both teams. Seth Wiley was placed as a alternate for either team in case of injury or illness before the event. He also helped out with the logistical support. I would like to also say thank you to Mark Reed who ran all of the teams support actions.
