Saline Marathon Runner finishes second in age group

Saline marathon runner Don Brown ran a half marathon at the Louisiana Marathon Finish Fest on Sunday, January 15.

He finished 2nd in the 70-74 age group and placed 631 out of the overall 1322 participants.

Brown said, “I had a good run up to 7 miles at Baton Rouge, then my hip went to hurting and I had to slow down for the rest of the run.”

The Finish Fest was a weekend event that featured food, local music, the Louisiana Marathon 5k, Half Marathon, Quarter Marathon and Kid’s Marathon. Runners crossed the finish line near the State Capitol Park.

Brown will be running this coming weekend at the Vermilion River Run 10 Miler in Lafayette and will be celebrating his 75th birthday on Sunday, January 29.

Good luck and happy birthday Mr. Brown.
