Evan Ellison, a 14-year-old freshman at Grand County High School, crosses the finish line of Moab’s 15th annual Winter Sun 10K run on Saturday, Dec. 3. According to race director Ranna Bieschke, this year’s event drew more than 500 registrants, with 424 successfully completing the 6.2-mile course, which started at the Moab Golf Club and ended at the high school track. Most of the runners were from Utah and Colorado, but Bieschke said there were also runners from several other states as well as Germany. James Roche, 29, of Montrose, Colorado, was the overall winner with a time of 33 minutes, 33 seconds. Ellison placed second with a time of 35:47, while his high school teammate, Ryan Lewis, 16, came in third overall with a time of 35:58. The top female overall finisher was Mackennea Broyles, 20, of Boulder, Colorado, who crossed the finish line in 38:20. “It was a beautiful day for a run,” Bieschke said, adding that the awards ceremony celebrated several other local finishers, including GCHS freshman Ali Hirt, who was her age group winner and the first Moab female finisher, Heather Stripeika, Matt Olding, Kate Cannon and Tyler Stash.
