B-rrry Scurry celebrates 32nd year

CLINTON — The 32nd annual B-rrry Scurry four-mile race brought in the same number of participants as last year.

According to Ann Eisenman, from Clinton Community College, 764 people took part in Saturday’s run/walk event.

Eisenman felt they had a great day for the race, telling participants at the start that it was 38 degrees outside.

“Beautiful day. We love the sunshine,” Eisenman said.

The first person to cross the finish line was Tom Reis, of Iowa City. This was Reis’ first year at the B-rrry Scurry. He was brought to the event by last year’s winner, Tyler Sullivan, of Coralville, who finished second.

Sullivan has been running in the B-rrry Scurry for four or five years. He said that Eisenman does a really great job with the event.

“We really enjoy putting out the red carpet for people who are coming into Clinton for the day,” Eisenman said.

Returning female record holder, Jessica Langford, of Rockford, Ill., once again finished first out of the female participants. She said this is her fourth time running in the event and her third win.

Eisenman was happy to see so many familiar faces returning to the race. Matt Schmit and Heather Dohrn-Schmidt, of LeClaire, were returning, along with their children, Ella, 8 and Oscar, 5. Ella came in third in her age bracket last year. Oscar was going to cheer for his family.

“It’s just a lot of fun,” Tracey Mouw, of Bettendorf, said. This is her second year for the race. “I like to run in the snow.”

Kim Hartung, of Clinton, thinks the B-rrry Scurry is a lot of fun, if cold. She has participated in the race for approximately six years.

Eisenman was also grateful to the more than 100 volunteers who work to make this fundraiser event possible. Volunteer of 10 years, Bob Nielsen, of Clinton, said the race is a great event for a great cause.

Money raised by the B-rrry Scurry benefits Clinton Community College through the scholarship program.

A complete list of Saturday's participants will be printed in Thursday's edition of the Clinton Herald.
