Adam Condit showed up and that made it a one-man race.

At least for first place.

The former UW-Eau Claire runner ran alone in setting an event 2-mile record of 9-minutes, 24-seconds in in the Tuesday Buckshot Run presented by WIN Technology on a cool and wet evening at Carson Park.

Becca Holman came from behind down the stretch to edge Jennifer Reeves in the women’s race.

“The weather turned out a lot better than I thought,” said the 35-year old Condit. “The rain stopped and it cooled off. That made for some good running.”

Condit made it a family affair, cruising in with 8-year old son Shane, who finished second in his class in 13:50, while 5-year old Leo took the youngest class in 21:41.

It was a good warmup for Condit, who highlights Saturday’s main attraction in which he will run the 5-mile and try for 25 or 26 minutes.

Coming in second was 16-year old Andrew Pathos of Downing, who finished in 10:40 while Cody Buckli, Wausau, was third in 11:09 and saw his six year string of victories in the event snapped.

Holman ran behind Reeves through three-quarters of the race and then sprinted ahead with a quarter mile to go.

“I passed Jen on the last hill of the course,” Holman said. “I felt a side ache and wanted to finish before it got the best of me.”

She finished in 13:07, eight seconds ahead of Reeves, who had a great run in that she gave birth to a daughter just two months ago.

“This is a surprise,” said Holman, a former Eau Claire North runner. “I had no idea what I would do it in and beat last year’s time by over a minute.”

Jean Carr, New Richmond, was third in 14:06.

Despite the unfavorable weather conditions, more than 200 runners took part.

Saturday’s 5-mile starts at 9 a.m. followed by the 2-mile at 10:30.
