Women dominated the annual Ag Days 6k run on Spring Valley’s paved trail Saturday morning as the first four places were all females. It also helped to be young as four teens were among the top six places.

Toni Kolling of Spring Valley was the champion with a time of 24:21. Kolling was the women’s champion in 2013, but didn’t compete last year due to an injury. Her time was about two minutes slower than 2013.

Race times in general were slower than the past two years as the race was held before the breeze kicked in Saturday in conditions that included a dew point and temperature just below 70 degrees with intense sun.

Ian Meisner, 15, of Spring Valley was the men’s champion. The defending overall champion of the past several years, Dallas Davidson, of Spring Valley, didn’t compete this year due to a non-running injury.

Amber Uhlenhake of Spring Valley, who was the women’s champion last year, took second place overall with a time of 25:16, one of the few runners to improve her time from previous years.

The next four places were all teens. Kierra Olson, 16, of Harmony, finished third, Jenny Clark, 15, of Rochester, placed fourth, Meisner finished fifth, and Kori Kruegel, 15, of Spring Valley, finished sixth.

This is the third year that the Ag Days road race has been held on the city trail at a distance of six kilometers, or 3.72 miles. There were 87 people registered and 84 made it to the starting line with all of them finishing as well.
