Dalton Paynter, of Freistatt, and Mikayla Peterson, of Walnut Grove, were the top male and female runners in the inaugural Lawrence County 4-H 5K Run for Health, on Nov.17, in Aurora.

The 15-year-old Paynter, finished in 18:59 and the 11-year-old Peterson, completed the distance in 27:06. Both winners received medals, gift certificates from RoadID and a Missouri 4-H T-shirt.

The race featured over 40 participants that ranged from age 6 to 51.

"We had participation from seven of our eight 4-H clubs in Lawrence County," said Karla Deaver, 4-H youth development specialist. "The run was a success on several levels. We had non 4-H participation, and we had 4-H members and volunteers from other counties who joined us for the race. We raised money for the local 4-H program, and enjoyed a healthy and fun activity together."
