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."
