This year there were 188 runners (30% increase from 2011) who took part in this fun event.

The Hanigan Chevrolet "Traveled Farthest" Prize went to May Chen Jing of Fuzhou City, Fujian Province, China.

May is one of the pioneers who started the marathon club of Fujian Province. In China, she is known in the running community nationwide as "the super girl of marathonY She does not train to be fast and win, just to run and enjoy her races. She does not speak English, so we had to phone a translator we just happened to know. We started some "fun awards" this year.

These are un.der rule 9. *Enacted in 1982, the Catastrophic Health Care Cost Program is designed as an insurance program for the counties to cover the cost of treatment for catastrophic illness suffered by county residents who have no means to pay for the cost of that care. The program picks up the additional medical costs of these residents once the county's claim payments have exceeded $10,000 during a 12-month period.
