UPDATE 7-18-13

Results are up from the 9th annual 2013 Beef and Eggs 5k. As expected we had another great turnout of 240 participants. Although the high humidity and temps created a challenge for many of the participants, the thunderstorms held off and the race started right on time.

On the men's side, the long string of Jackrabbit champions was finally broken by outsider Will Kogel, a former Sioux Falls Roosevelt standout and recent graduate of the University of Oklahoma. Kogel broke the race open early, while Chris Gruenhagen employed familiar tactics to pull away from course record holder Brad Lowery in the final mile to finish 2-3 respectively. While Kogel is new to this race, Gruenhagen and Lowery have combined to claim 5 of the top 10 fastest times ever run at Beef and Eggs.

On the women's side, the familiar face of Sheena Dauer reemerged to claim her 4th Beef and Eggs title and first since 2008. Dauer won by a comfortable margin of 20 + seconds over recent SDSU grad Tera (Potts) Bredeson, who finished runner-up for the second straight year. Jackrabbit Courtney Newbert was close behind in 3rd, a big improvement from last year's 8th place showing.

A big thank you to the Brookings Police Department for creating a safe and fun road race environment for all. Also a big thank you to all of our sponsors who help make this road race possible...Meyer Orthodontics, Weerheim Law, South Dakota Cattlemen’s Auxiliary, South Dakota Beef Industry Council (providing egg bake, catered by HyVee), First Bank and Trust of Brookings, Cubbys Sports Bar and Grill, Bartlings Shoes, Brookings Radio, Brookings Boys and Girls Club (providing volunteers), Foerster Distributing, Prairie Striders (USATF Affiliated Running Club), Prairie Graphics, and all of our other supporters and volunteers.

We look forward to seeing everyone again on arts festival weekend 2014!
