The 32nd annual Cliff Hanger Run 5k/8k took place Saturday, Oct. 27, with 787 timed runners and about 100 non-competitive walkers. Event organizer David Remley said nearly $10,000 was raised for Northeast Neighbor to Neighbor, a nonprofit organization that helps Northeast community members with temporary medical finance issues.

“The race went really well. It was well-attended, and everyone had a great time,” Remley said. “Cliff Drive looked amazing. It all went off without a hitch.”

In the 5k women’s category were Gabrielle Penaflor in first, Brittney Hunter in second and Courtney Breitkreutz in third. In the 8k women’s category were Jennifer Kongs in first, Angie Nygren in second and Betsy Johnson in third. In the 5k men’s category were Brian Green in first, Benjamin Chan in second and Carson Heurtin in third. In the 8k men’s category were Ryan Liston in first, Dane Johnson in second and Scott Wilmes in third. The age groups ranged from 13 to 80+ with three men and two women racing in the 80+ category.
