On July 16, approximately 800 people — including 600 runners and walkers — turned out for the Pikesville Chamber of Commerce’s annual “Miles That Matter Pikesville 5K Run/Walk” at the Woodholme Center.
The event benefited the chamber and the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young adults. It included a post-race celebration that featured a hot breakfast, giveaways and prizes, kid-friendly activities and tech shirts. For the first time ever, Union Craft Brewing provided finish-line beers.
Jmore was a media sponsor of the 5K.
The female overall winners of the race were Sherry Stick, Lena Mathews and Victoria Sill. Male overall winners were Omari Daughtridge, Jim Heilman and Dave Berdan.
