While most GWTC members were saving up their energies for Sunday’s Wilderness Runs at Fallschase Nov. 7, 1999, a few intrepid racers travelled far and wide to make their marks.

- Bill McGuire brought home $250 from the Delchamps 10K in Mobile Saturday, where he took the GrandMasters title in 36:66. David Yon ran a 38:42, an indicator that his hamstrung hamstring is starting to cooperate again. Mary Jean Yon and Fran McLean were second and third in the Master’s competition, with times of 42:23 and 42:30, netting cash prizes of $150 and $50. Phil Yon rolled to a time just under 40:00 in the wheel chair division. Bruce Moore finished in 39:40, followed by Dennis Barton with a time of 43:50.
