Runners raise funds for nonprofits at Pinedale Half Marathon
Local students stand out in 10K
PINEDALE — More than two dozen people participated in the 2022 Pinedale Half Marathon, raising thousands of dollars for at least 30 local nonprofits serving Sublette County. Emily Guier, 37, finished the 13.1-mile race in first place in the women’s division with a time of 1:44:08 while Michael Lutz, 35, snagged first in the men’s division at 1:25:08.
Pinedale High School’s Madison Antonino, 16, claimed first in the 10K race out of 78 female runners. Big Piney High School’s Colby Jenks, 17, beat 33 other male runners to the finish line to claim first place in the 6.21-mile race.
New to this year’s event was an emphasis on fundraising. Participants could choose a local nonprofit to receive a portion of their entry fee, with $25,000 in matching funds contributed by the Pinedale Half Marathon and anonymous donors. There’s still time to donate. The campaign runs through Sept. 24. For more information or to make a donation, visit www.pinedalehalfmarathon.com.
The Pinedale Lions Club and local chef Sue Eversull provided a barbecue lunch, salads and desserts as part of a community picnic following Saturday’s high-altitude races.
