Some 4,000 runners – including 400 Island residents – participated in last Saturday’s See Jane Run 5K, half marathon and kids run. The event was a benefit for Girls Inc. of the Island City.

The winner’s of this year’s 5K race were Erin Shirey of Alameda, with a time of 22:12, and Matthew Fairbanks of Oakland, with a time of 22:21. Half marathon winners were Corinne De Lorenzo of Pleasanton, with a time of 1:29:30, and Lawrence Chin of San Francisco, with a time of 1:29:34.

Alamedans were well represented in the top race slots, with 16-year-old Courtney Winterbauer taking second place in the women’s 5K with a time of 24:45, Tiffany Ho taking fifth in that race with a time of 25:13 and Mindy Limon taking sixth, with a time of 25:27. Gabriel Cortez and Anthony Germono took sixth and 10th, respectively, in the men’s half marathon, with times of 1:59:52 and 2:10:23.

Race participants were rewarded at the finish line with chocolate and champagne. And more than 130 people volunteered to make the race happen.

    I was a disappointed with the crowd support on the route. Bay Farm has an opportunity to shine and cheer and there was only one family on their back porch. People out for their morning walk refused to move on the Shoreline path. Traffic halts kept spectators in their car with dour looks. No signs. No honking. Just spattering of support and spectators at the finnish. Thousands of women pounding the streets is the perfect time to make some noise. The Oakland Running Festival got this right in their inaugural event. I hope that next year more Alamedas will make it out to support this race.

    I heard about this race and that the race control and driver support was terrible. There were no signs that the race was on and what was being blocked off–I found out as I went around Alameda that morning–early. On Harbor Bay on Doolittle–a runner told me after the race–that the cars were 20 deep and that people were outside their cars because they could not move and that nobody helped to move the cars. I can understand dour looks with no warnings and just being stopped for what seems to be an impromptu event.
