Race volunteers grabbed hold of papers and race equipment as a strong wind brought a line of showers the fort just before the 2002 HuManatee run began. Ryan Deak dominated the 5K running 16:26 without breaking a sweat. Tim Bolton was the first mortal to finish, doing so in 17:14. Susan Guy ran 22:13 to win the women’s division. Phil Yon cranked the hand cycle to a new 5K best 14:05.
