POLAND - Runners in the 36th annual Crazy Lenny's New Year's Eve 5K Race Dec. 31 found it cloudy and windy with the temperature sitting around 33 degrees for the 11 a.m. start.

Many former winners on both the men's side and the women's side returned to do battle.

On the men's side, John Mirth took advantage of his fitness and grabbed another title, becoming the oldest winner of this event at age 54. The former Poland runner and owner of Cleveland Running Co. was the first male runner in the 50s age group.

Tim Dwyer was the first in the 40-49 age group. Local runner Butch Caimano was the first in the 60 age group.

On the women's side, newcomer to the race Mary Beth Acker picked up her first win by out distancing the women's field. 2012 Olympic Marathon Trials qualifier Sarah Bashinski was the first masters.

Former Poland runners Don Carson, Becky Rudzik and Phil Pillin did the race directing duties.
