Ken Caputo Awards, Alexandria

Winner: Pierson Gammage

At each race we give an award to a race day volunteer that spreads enthusiasm, happiness, and a touch of goofiness to our event.

Run Course Captain Deb Povinelli wrote, “Pierson was just before the shortcourse turn around and never stopped jumping, ringing the cowbell, and high-fiving every kid who came by. Her enthusiasm was contagious and many of the kids broke into a smile when they saw her. Best of all, thanks to her location, the racers got to see her twice on the out and back.  She brought great energy!” Thank you, Pierson, for creating such a wonderful environment for our racers and all around you.

Honorable Mentions

Grace Franklin demonstrated boundless energy as a Run Course Rabbit. She wore a huge smile stepped up to run both courses when needed. Her energy and willingness to help with anything was truly appreciated by all. When she wasn’t running, she was cheering on racers in Transition.

Sol Ahn was a huge help at the finish line. She had great energy and took Whitaker and his sister, Lakeland, under her wing helping them give out water and fill up cups when they didn’t want to do medals anymore. Clare van der Horst, our Finish Line Captain said, “she cheered our racers with amazing spirit and genuine joy.”

Juliet Faris was located at the corner where the kids turned into the finish line. As their energy waned, she ran along side racers who needed a little extra boost.
