Over 100 cross the finish of the 10th BFD Catfish Crawl

Over 100 runners from across the Southeast converged on Blountstown Saturday for the 10th (Almost) Annual BFD Catfish Crawl 5K and Kid’s Fun Run.  They were greeted with cool temperatures and sunny skies, what many consider perfect running weather.  Leonardo Canete was the first overall finisher with a time of 17:16 followed closely by Tallahassee’s Mickey Moore at 18:22 and past Catfish Crawl winner Mike Martinez at 18:58.  Alena Brobst was the first overall female finisher with a time of 24:24.  “We had a great crowd today! It takes about 100 registered runners to make the scholarship happen and we definitely met that mark!” said Fire Chief Ben Hall, who also serves as Race Director.  “We had great participation from locals and visitors, and many of our visitors stuck around and took advantage of race day specials at our local businesses.”  The race, held on the second weekend of November, benefits the Blountstown Fire Department Scholarship Fund, awarded annually to a graduating BHS Senior and covers all costs associated with attending fire academy. Mark your calendars for November 11, 2023 and join us for our first ever Veteran’s Day Catfish Crawl!
