Jamon Rodrigues of Gillette, a former Campbell County High School runner, won the 5K men's race title during the 2013 Durham Ranch Charity Buffalo Stampede on June 1 near Wright.

A total of 150 walkers and runners participated in the annual event, raising more than $19,000 for Hospital of Campbell County Memorial Hospital.

John Flocchini, an organizer for the event, said there were 46 runners and 104 walkers in the event. The run included 5K and 10K distances.

There were less than ideal conditions because of steady rain.

"The new course included some challenging hills for the 10K runners, especially, but times were very competitive," he said.

Overall race champions won gold medals and an assortment of buffalo meat as prizes.

Rodriguez earned a time of 18 minutes, 24 seconds, to top the 5K by just 25 seconds over Matt Albin.

Nic Penning, a former Gillette College runner, won the 10K men's title with a time of 36:27, nipping Michael Luhr of Gillette by 12 seconds. Luhr competes for the Montana State-Billings squad.

Kayla Grammar, who placed sixth overall in the 5K, was the first woman across the finish line with a time of 24:05.

Sarah Glasser, the Wright cross country coach, was fifth overall among the 11 10K runners competing. She won the women's 10K title with a time of 53:44.
