Fittingly, a race run to raise awareness of a disease that mostly affects women, was won by a woman.
Former University of Tennessee at Chattanooga distance runner Anneli Uys-Morrison, and current assistant coach for the Mocs, outpaced the field to claim the overall title. She ran through a crowd of walkers to reach the finish line in a time of 18:07.
"I'm not really sure anyone realized I had finished," Morrison said. "There were a lot of people walking and I had to weave through the crowd to reach the line."
Morrison was the 2010 Southern Conference Female Outdoor Track Athlete of the Year and won back-to-back league titles in the 800 and 1500 meter runs. She was a nine-time all-conference performer and qualified for the NCAA track region meet in her last two seasons.
