Run for Shelter Raises
$4,000 in Second Year

BY E.J. MOORE

BLOOMSBURG, PA--Over 200 runners came out to participate in the 2nd annual Run for Shelter on New Year's Eve. The race benefited the Columbia/Montour Women's Center and the runners helped to raise over $4,000. C. Fred Joslyn and Shelby Perkins, both from Binghamton, NY, were the men's and women's winners, respectively. Joslyn finished in 16:03, beating last year's winner and course record holder (16:01) Kip Hoffman by twelve seconds. Shelby Perkins, 19:26, beat runner-up Shannon Hoffman (Kip's younger sister) by eight seconds.

This year's race increased by 30% over the 2002 race and we anticipate another increase for 2004. Many runners enjoyed the balmy mid-30s weather and looked to the race as a good finish to the year. Many hope to return to the flat, fast course to finish off 2004.

Hope to see you there!
