Refreshingly cool temps brought out the full body insulation kits at the Q50 St. Valentines Day 10 km night time trail run at Fontainebleau State Park in Mandeville, Louisiana. Over 85 runners put fresh batteries in their headlamps and went out on a 6.2 mile off road adventure.
6:16 min/miles was the spicy pace Dalton Fetters averaged on his race winning effort in the male race.
Shannon Allison went sub-42 to claim second place in the nocturnal adventure with a 41:45 finish time.
Top 5 male
- Dalton Fetters – 39:00
- Shannon Allison – 41:45

Christina Hubbell ran her way to a seventh overall placing while winning the female race in 45:41.
A group of five crossed the finish within a two second window…smiling together…gritting their teeth…elbows swinging a bit wide…hand in hand…I will let your imagination decide. Ashley Fontenot led this pack for second with Jen Guidry in a near synchronized stride.
