Former UTC Runner Claims Komen Title
CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. --- On Sunday, September 25, runners from around the Chattanooga area gathered at the McKenzie Arena to raise money for and awareness of breast cancer at the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure 5K road race.

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.
