Keith Schlieker stands with Mattie Brown after crossing the finish line at the annual Scott Burgess Memorial Festival.

And the race winner is…

Saturday morning the start of the annual Scott Burgess Memorial 5k got underway at 8:00 a.m. with more registrants than in previous years. With 120+ register for the race, pending rain forecast turned around many of the would be racers, leaving a field of roughly 50.

However, rain or shine did not matter as the races lined up for the trek across town and back through the neighborhoods of Franklin, the fastest time, 19 minutes and 45 seconds turned in by Franklin’s own Keith Schlieker. Schlieker recorded one of the fastest times in race history and was followed in by Mattie Brown in the female division just over 20 minutes.
