Mattingly, Obata win 2009 Ham Days fun run/walk

-A A +A
By Stephen Lega

In wet, rainy conditions, 179 runners and walkers completed the 2009 Pokey Pig 5K Saturday morning.

Marion County High School senior cross country runner Matthew Mattingly posted the fastest time, covering the 3.1-mile course in 19 minutes, 7.58 seconds.

Mattingly also was the fastest Marion County resident.

The fastest female was Sarah Obata, a freshman defender on the Marion County High School girls' soccer team. Obata finished the race in 22:17.30.

Tom Coulter was the fastest first-year participant with a time of 21:07.50.

Coulter, Mattingly and Obata weren't the only ones who achieved firsts in the race, however.

Jean Lanham, 76, was the oldest first-time participant in the Pokey Pig. She crossed the finish line carrying an umbrella in 46:58.79.

She also had a lot of support along the route and on the course. Two of her children, a daughter-in-law, four grandchildren and one great-grandchild also finished the race.

"I just always wanted to do it," Lanham said after crossing the finish line.
