Reporter/Mike Brown RHS cross-country team members go to the lead immediately as 2011 Run For the Kay begins on historic Main Street in Rockdale. Reporter/Mike Brown The sixth annual Kay Theatre 5K Run/Unrun grossed $ 5,000 toward restoration of the Rockdale landmark as about 60 persons participated in the event Saturday.

That means the event has raised about $48,000 in its four-year history. The previous five runs netted a combined $43,000.

The race unreeled under picture-perfect weather, clear skies and temperatures in the 50s, after a brutal summer which broke all local heat records.

For the second straight year, RHS cross- country athlete Juan Rubio captured the men’s run clocking in at 17:18.

Teammates Francisco Romo (18:51) and Benito Castillo ((20:16) were second and third respectively.

Jen Plair of Caldwell was the first-place female in 20:09, Amber Jones was second in 23:15 and Emily Ammon was third with a 23:32 effort.


Get up early on a Saturday morning? Why not, when it’s this much fun in the 1-K Kid’s Kay Run which preceded the main event. Get up early on a Saturday morning? Why not, when it’s this much fun in the 1-K Kid’s Kay Run which preceded the main event. 5K RUN
