SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va., June 1, 2013 — Two of the top three finishers of the inaugural Warriors 5K Race for the Cure, a cross country event at Sam Michael’s Park, aren’t even teenagers.

Adelaide Amore, Alex Hanney and PHDC member Sam Shunney took the top three spots of the inaugural Warriors 5K Race for the Cure on Saturday, June 1, at Sam Michael's Park in Shenandoah, W.Va.

That doesn’t mean they’re not fast. Adelaide Amore, 12, of Charles Town, earned the overall victory in 20 minutes and 30 seconds on a day that temperatures would climb into the 90s. Though race officials had marked the course thoroughly, they’d done so in white paint — which was difficult to see on the grass under the glare of the sun.

Amore finished nearly six minutes ahead of her closest female competitor. Jennifer Seaton, 37, of Harpers Ferry, W.Va., finished second in 26:19.3 and Kristy Brill, 31, of Charles Town, placed third in 27:22.4. Elaine Clark, 50, of Harpers Ferry, placed fourth in the women’s standings and earned the women’s masters (40-plus) crown.

Potomac Highlands Distance Club member Sam Shunney, 11, of Kearneysville, W.Va., took third overall in 20:55.9, just ahead of men’s masters winner Tim Hudson, 45, of Stephenson, Va.
