Record turnout

Teens win Jolley Be Good 5K run

A record number, 380 participants, traversed the S.S. Jolley Bridge on Saturday at the Jolley Be Good Run. It surpassed 302 a year ago.

A partly overcast day suited the runners and walkers.

Teenagers were the overall top runners.

Jake Dorn, 16, of Estero and Rosie Polling, 14, of Marco Island. Dorn runs on the Estero High cross country team while Polling runs for Lely.

Dorn conquered the bridge, running 17:42.1, over a minute faster than second place finisher Brendan Reilly, 26, of Sarver, who ran the course in 18:45. Paul Johnson, 26, of Naples took third in 18:50.2.

Polling’s time was 20:16.9. Second was Kara Shirley, 28, of Pittsburgh and Nina Lang, 49, was third in 22:20.6.

“I liked running the bridge and took advantage of the downhill and straightaways,” Dorn said.

Polling differed, “It was a fun race but going up the bridge hurts. The reward was coming back down.”

Dorn’s dad, Dean, won his 45-49 age bracket, while his mother, Tricia, was seventh in her 45-49 bracket.
