HOLMES BEACH – The weather was changing Saturday morning. A cold front was on its way, but the cold winds came later, and the 2018 Dolphin Dash runners enjoyed near-perfect weather.
The 5K run came first with more adults than children. The event, which was held at Anna Maria Elementary School with the running course along side streets in Holmes Beach, was sanctioned by the Bradenton Runners Club.
The overall male winner was Mark Carver, from Nashville, Tenn., and the female winner was Jennifer Rowley.
The second race, the one-mile Fun Run, has more kids with students from all around the area, including students at AME, who trained before school.
The event benefits the Anna Maria Elementary PTO.
