See Jane Run Race Results From Sunday
Bay Area natives Jessie Stewart and Rei Esaka were the big winners at the See Jane Run Half-Marathon and 5K race last Sunday, June 22 in Alameda.
The 29-year-old Stewart blew through her competition completing the half-marathon course in 1:21:52, on her way to winning the race. San Francisco resident Michelle Meyer came in second place with a time of 1:25:38, while Oakland resident Flora Lai came in third place with a time of 1:27:41.
The fastest Alamedan to complete the half marathon was Hollie Von Rock who finished in 1:27:50, good for fourth place. Richard Silva was the second Alamedan, and second male, to complete the half-marathon course. He crossed the finish line in 1:35:31. The first male to complete the race was 13-year-old Jared Chan of Sunnyvale. Chan finished in 1:32:46. Vaness Yingling was the third Alamedan to complete the half marathon in a time of 1:44:13.
Esaka, a 14-year-old male from San Jose, completed the 5K in 20:05. Langston Hazen, 13, completed the 5K race just 10 seconds behind the leader at 20:15. Kelly Scanlon, 31, was the first female to complete the race in 20:22 good for third place overall.
Brooke Condolora was the second Alamedan to complete the race in 22:00. Three straight Alameda residents finished behind Condolora: Chloe De Verrier (22:37), Michele Hidalgo (22:51) and Mary Malkic (22:54).
The event was organized by the See Jane Run athletic apparel, running shoes and gear company, which is based in San Francisco. The See Jane Run Half Marathon and 5K race is designed exclusively for women runners, although men are welcomed, along a course that runs through Alameda’s Bay Trail and features views of the bay and the city skyline throughout most of the race.
More than 3,000 runners and walkers participate every year in the half marathon and the 5K race combined. The race is organized as a benefit for the Breast Cancer Fund, a national nonprofit that works to eliminate the environmental causes of breast cancer.
The starting line for both races lies at Alameda’s Washington Park, on Eighth Street between Central Avenue and Portola Avenue. From there, the fast and flat course — which is mostly an out-and-back route but has a finish line just a stone’s throw away from the starting line, on the other side of the park — takes runners in a southeasterly direction, running along Eighth Street and Westline Drive toward Carlsbad State Beach, which unfolds along a long, flat straightaway section along Shore Line and Bayview drives.
Other Alameda attractions participants run past are the Chuck Corica Golf Complex and the Bay Farm Island Bridge.
