WENATCHEE — Chad McBride and Sarah Barkley, both of Wenatchee, won individual 10K titles Tuesday morning during the River Run on the Fourth race in Wenatchee.

McBride finished the 6.2-mile, Apple Capital Loop Trail course, which takes runners from Pybus Public Market across the Columbia River to East Wenatchee and then back to Pybus, in 38 minutes and 59 minutes. Second in the men’s race was Clancy Andrews, who was clocked in 39:51, and third was Claton Belmont, who finished in 43:25.

Barkley completed the course in 40:19. In addition to winning the women’s race, she was third overall in the 10K. Jennifer Hinson was runner-up in the women’s 10K (and fourth overall) in 42:17, and Heidi Loewen was third in 45:03.

In the River Run men’s 5K, Casey Campbell easily won, posting a time of 16:19. Connor Weldy was runner-up in 19:08, followed by Kevin Farrell in 19:29.

Anna Dirkse captured the women’s 5K in 22:38. Brooke Rydman was second in 24:48 and Angela Surita was third in 25:10.

The 7th-annual River Run was held under sunny skies with temperatures in the 60s and low-70s at race time. The event is part of the community’s Independence Day Celebration and benefits the Literacy Council of Chelan and Douglas Counties. Event sponsors this year included CMI Orchards, Building NCW, North Cascades Bank, Homchick Smith & Associates, and Northern Fruit.

About 375 people registered for the race.

“The hot temperatures held off, thanks to early morning cloud cover, and we had a nice surge in late registrations,” said race director Joel Rhyner of RunWenatchee. “All in all, things went smoothly. We can’t thank our volunteers and sponsors enough. They are the key to pulling this community race off.”
