Rossland residents gathered at Centennial trailhead on the morning of Sunday, September 7 to run this year’s Golden City Grind.

The grind consists of three runs, one kilometer , Five kilometer, and 10 kilometer.  Approximately 125 people took part in the run this year, which organizer Shelley Ackerman said was the best turn out in the four years she has been volunteering.

“This is amazing.  Rossland is turning into a running town,” Ackerman exclaimed.

The proceeds from the grind go to Black Jack Ski Club.  Gerick Cycle and Sports and the Alpine Grind Coffeehouse sponsored the event.

First place winners received a chocolate medal from Mountain Nugget Chocolate Co.  Second and third were given cookie medals from Sweet Dreams Bakery.

In the one kilometer race, Abbey McLean was the first girl to cross the finish line.  For the boys, it was Evan Taylor.  The overall winner for the five kilometer run was Mark Impey with a time of 27:11, and in close second came Michelle Bradner with a time of 28:16.  In the 10 km race, David Palmer came first with a time of 33:35.  Heather Johnson came in first for the girls at 44:20.
