Alex Garber said he's been running in the 5K Sneakers & Spurs rodeo run since he was in kindergarten.

Friday morning, he won the event, logging in a time of 16 minutes, 52 seconds. Still a little breathless from his win, he talked about his strategy.

Race Director Michelle Mandeville said there were a record number of entries in Friday's event – over 500.

Among the entries was Sheridan County Commissioner Christi Haswell. She said she's been running in the Sneakers & Spurs since she was in high school.

Mandeville said in addition to the 5K run, there's also a walk, which was expanded from 1.5 to 2 miles this year. She said that might have been a bit of a surprise to some of the walkers, but most were just out for the fun anyway.
