Quad Cities Marathon runners

The running class from the Bureau County Metro Center took three teams to compete in the Quad Cities Marathon Sunday. The Five Fast Females placed second, Princeton Blue placed fourth and Princeton White placed third. Class instructor Brenda Roggy said, “It’s a tight-knit group that supports each other and really enjoys going to races and cheering each other on.” They may take more teams next year, Roggy said. Team members include (front row, from left) Brianna Legner, Jessica Johnston, Brenda Roggy, Angie Forbeck and Samantha Statler; and (back row) Eric Thompson, Si Forbeck, Brian Fogerty, Dennis Nink, Brian Taylor, Josh Mabry, Tom Marquis, Rod Hewitt and JD Orwig.
